Kindle Can't Borrow E-Books From Library--I Need A Kobo ASAP ~!

And the search for a Kobo e-reader has begun! I have been waiting and waiting for our county to get it's digital library up and running and though I had read that the Kindle would not be supported I was not sure, until today when I saw that they had opened and sure enough out of all the tons of devices that can be used for borrowing e-books, the Kindle can not!

iPad, iPhone, MP3 players, Sony e-readers, Nook and even cell phones can borrow books from my library but not my Kindle...I am so upset. Especially since I saw that they have a lot of titles that are not available in regular book format. I did download the file and program so that I could borrow from my laptop and got my first book but it's not a whole lot of fun reading from a big ol laptop and it's not really very portable or convenient either. 

So all this time I have been waiting for my library to get with the times and bring on the e-books and then they finally do and I don't have the right device. What a complete bummer--I am now going to spend some serious time looking for a Kobo reader, even if it's a used one. Ebay here I come...!

Not that it really helps right now, but Kindle is supposed to be making it able to borrow ebooks by the end of the year. I hope so cause that is what I have too!

Well--I still read the old fashioned way--one of these days I will break down and buy a Kindle or Nook--or if I get real lucky--win one!!
