        Top features:

        - Ergonomic with an 8-inch screen that feels super-light

        - Portrait or landscape mode: you decide

        - Waterproof for up to 60 minutes under 2 metres

        - Easy on your eyes so you can read before bed

        Ergonomic with an 8-inch screen

        Love books, but don't have the space for your growing collection at home? Then get yourself an eReader like this one. The Kobo Forma eReader is a fantastic alternative to reading print books.

        With 8 GB of built-in storage – you can store thousands of your favourite books on it – so there's no need to lug around your heavy hardbacks on your travels. The 8-inch screen also gives you plenty of page space, and the curved design is comfortable in your hand so you can hold it for hours while getting lost in your favourite novel.

        Portrait or landscape mode

        With a digital ink display you can read from any angle in portrait or landscape mode. You can even set the text to rotate automatically as you shuffle into a more comfortable reading position. So, it doesn't matter whether you're sitting up on a chair or lying down on a beach - reading on the Kobo Forma always feels natural.

        Waterproof

        Want to read by the pool, or in the bath? Then don't let anything stop you. Kobo Forma has an IPX8 rating – which means it's waterproof for up to 60 minutes in up to two metres of water – so don't worry about dropping it in the tub, along with your rubber duckie.

        Easy on your eyes

        Reading on a screen doesn't have to be harmful to your eyes. The Forma has an adjustable front-light, that gradually reduces blue-light exposure to keep you alert and reading in comfort. And digital e-Ink looks just like real ink, so you can carry on reading before you hit the hay.

        light and easy to use to read books.
        Cannot be used to transfer magazines, Kobo Support have admitted that it is due to inadequate design.

        Also, power on switch is very poor and difficult to use.

        Rochester GB I’m a avide reader.

        It’s lovely to hold and I like the click button you can choose or still swipe. I also like the shape. I also have the kobo case it really lovely.
        It keeps switching its orientation. So it will go go upside down when you pick it up. Most times it quickly right its its self but occasionally it takes time. I understand they know about this and I hope the will send software to fix it. I would still buy it even if I’d know before I bought it that it does this. I think it would be great for a left handed person. That’s what it seems to want to be.
