Win a Kindle, Kobo or Book Tokens

Following on from my last post – my Kobo e-reader prize has arrived and has turned out to be more of an android tablet rather than a simple e-reader. It is the Vox model and has lots more functionality than I expected, so what choice did I have but to keep both it and the Kindle?

I find the Kindle easier on the eye for sustained periods of reading and it has a longer battery life. But the Kobo will drag me into the world of tablets and Apps – something I’ve had no experience of until now.

The first App I downloaded was A Quick Read (as mentioned in this month’s Writers’ News), which is a collection of short stories for reading on the move. Have a look at the website for how to submit your own stories for inclusion.

I’ve rooted out some prize draws if you’d like to win your own e-reader or some good old-fashioned book tokens:

  • For the chance to win a Kindle Fire, click here 
  • For the chance to win WH Smith vouchers that can be used to buy a Kobo, click here
  • For the chance to win some Book Tokens, click here.

Good Luck!

    Many thanks Sally. I’ve forgone the gadgets and entered for book tokens.

    Thanks for the links, Sally!
    I’m still undecided about ebooks but a free Kindle or Kobo might convert me 🙂

      Linda, I find that I now read a combination of e-books and ‘real’ books. So an e-reader doesn’t mean you have to forsake books completely.

    Thanks Sally – I’ve had a go at winning the new Kindle fire. Saw these in Waterstones at w/e and they do look tempting.

    Many thanks, Sally. I’ve gone for the vouchers. My Kindle is almost two years old and I still love reading on it, although have not abandoned print.

      Christine, I went for the vouchers too – already having a Kindle and a Kobo now.

    I’m really going to have to get to grips with these newfangled inventions! Thanks for the competition info.
