During the holidays, books and eReader are wonderful gifts, and the Kobo Clara HD eReader is a great book lover gift idea that provides a user-friendly way to read your favorite books. Out of the box, it’s so easy to set up, connect to Wi-Fi, sign in or create an account, and charge when it needs power. I love its compact size which makes it lightweight and easy to hold, tote in your bag, or pack in luggage.
For the purpose of the review, my Kobo Clara HD was preloaded with a few books to help me, but it’s easy to purchase and download books from the Kobo store to your eReader or you can borrow from your public library if they belong to OverDrive. Plus, you can use the Kobo app on a smartphone or tablet to read the same books, and the content will sync between devices.
The Kobo Clara HD eReader has ComfortLight Pro which makes it easy on the eyes for reading, the font can be made into a Large Print for those who prefer it, plus it has other customizable features. It gives one a natural print-like experience on the 6” HD screen. The Kobo Clara HD has 8GB of storage and is able to store up to 6000 ebooks. The long-life battery charge can give you weeks of reading. You charge by hooking up to a power source like a computer or through a USB port. A charging cord comes with the eReader.
Easy to turn on, the Kobo Clara HD touch screen works great and the menu is easy to navigate. You can find your activity and progress on each book, create a wish list, manage your books for your own organization preferences, and find recommended readings. This Kobo eReader also provides access to a help feature with a full user guide, connects to Pocket, and allows you to purchase directly from the Kobo store. With over 5 million titles in multiple genres in the Kobo store, you’ll always find something to read, and you’ll earn Kobo Super Points on each purchase.
The Kobo Clara HD hits all the checkmarks as an easy to use eReader for the book lovers on your holiday list. Priced at $129, the Kobo Clara HD is available at kobo.com and select retailers.
