Sell Kobo Wireless N647

Sun, 22 Apr 2018 00:15:41 GMT

I bought this black Kobo Wireless model N647 used and it works great. However, due to eye damage, I am struggling with the font so decided to sell. Unit is in good shape - no scratches on screen or casing. It attached to wifi with no problem and downloaded books with no problem. My initial difficulties with the unit were because I wasn't entering my Kobo account correctly. There is no SD card and no cord. I've been using a USB cord from my bluetooth speaker to charge and sideload. I will reset to factory settings. Currently has system 1.9.12. Asking $21 which includes shipping in US. I sell on Ebay often (StephMN). Prefer Paypal but a Amazon gift card is fine. Please PM. Thanks!

Sell Onyx Boox N96ML

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 15:19:55 GMT

Hi, I am selling my Onyx Boox N96ML. I bought by the end of May 2016 and kept it in very good conditions and always in its cover. The pen is the only part that shows some utilization signs as the central button is broken as well as the clip. I am slightly reducing the final price for this. If you are interested we can talk via e-bay just to show my 100% positive feedback and have you buying with confidence. Attached you can find some pictures. Price is 250 Eur shipment included in Central, South East and West Europe. North Europe will probably be expensive so cannot cover, but we can find a deal.

Software for taking notes on several devices?

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 14:01:50 GMT

Hi :) I am looking for a good software which I can use for taking notes on several devices, so I was interested in the one you are currently using? Most of the time I am on the go and a good idea pops up in my head, so I want to write it down as soon as possible and store it. However, when I write it on a sticky note, I tend to forget where I put it, and I end up losing it. So, it will be great if I can synchronize my email and know that I have everything I need there! PS I know about Google notes but it takes me a while to load and open, maybe is just my device. I will appreciate the help! :)

The Wiki is 12 years old this month

Wed, 18 Apr 2018 17:21:38 GMT

The wiki has reached its 12th birthday this month and has gotten more than 42 million views. You can view Wiki Statistics to see some of the milestones. There are more that 4000 total pages with 1690 distinct information pages. The top three pages have over a million and a half views. I appreciate all the help from MobileRead members. Personally I have over 20,000 edits to keep everything working ok. Dale

Hello everybody

Tue, 17 Apr 2018 21:24:36 GMT

Hi everyone. I've been a fan of audio since the days of tapesets, when it was next to impossible to get anything unabridged. I mostly use Audible, sometimes Librivox, and occasionally CDs when they're on sale in remaindered shops - what my father calls "Not A Proper Bookshop". I'm a slow reader, so I had a huge pile of books on my "to read" list; now, with the easy access to audio versions, I've got through books I never thought I'd get around to reading. I live in the south of England with my wife who mostly reads books on Kindle.

Sell eReader Spring Cleaning Sale!

Sun, 15 Apr 2018 16:04:56 GMT

Hello, everyone! It's time for me to whittle down my gadget collection, so I have the following ones available. You can pay through PayPal. You can also check out my ratings on eBay (same user name there as here). All devices are in very good condition. I'm selling them as I no longer use them. Any known bugs are listed. Shipping is included in price (to USA and Canada). I can post photos if desired. 1) *Onyx Boox C67ML Carta* - 6 inch display, Android 4.2.2, 300 dpi, sd card slot. Includes case. If I still have the box, you'll get that as well. No known bugs. Price: $80 2) *Boyue T63* - Similar specs to the C67 above. Flush display. Includes case. Known bugs: the stock Library and Storage apps are buggy. Install your own file manager app and library app and you'll be happier! Also, the upper 20% of the display is ever so slightly darker than the rest. (Common glitch with this device.) Price: $80. 3) *Onyx Boox Kepler Pro* - 6 inch display, 1 gb RAM, 16 gb internal storage, sd card slot. Runs Android 4.0.4. Newer and better 6 inch reader (despite the older Android version). No known bugs. Includes case. Price: $100 4) *Nook Glowlight 3* - 6 in. display, nice frontlight, Android 4.4, 8 gb internal storage. No known bugs. Includes only device - but if I find the box, I'll include that as well. No case. Price: $80. 5) *Dell Venue 8 Pro 5855* - Not an E-Ink device, but would make a good eReader. This is the upgraded Venue 8, with 4 GB RAM, 64 GB internal storage, stylus and the higher resolution 8 inch display. Runs Windows 10 (newest version). Known bugs: Occasionally, Windows will not "see" the sd card. Remove it and reinsert it, and all will be well. Also, I deleted the recovery partition to gain 7 gb of internal storage. I copied the recovery partition to a usb flash drive. After several Windows upgrades, I don't know if the recovery drive will still work well. I'll include it if you want it. Includes stylus, case, BT keyboard, cable and charger. Price: $200. Please PM me with any questions or if you have any interest in any of these. Will ship USPS Priority Mail to USA & Canada within two days of receiving PayPal payment. If you're from outside the USA or Canada, I'll need to check shipping rates and get back to you. I'm in no rush to sell. Willing to consider reasonable offers. Thanks for your interest.

Sell Kobo Aura H2O Edition 1

Wed, 11 Apr 2018 23:07:40 GMT

I'm selling my Kobo Aura H2O Edition 1. The device is four years old but it is a spare (I have another H2Ov1) so it rarely get used. It is working great and no noticeable scratch that I'm aware of. I have the original cable but no longer the original box. Asking 80 EUR (~100 USD) + shipping from Germany. I will also consider a trade with a reading device that runs Andriod or koreader.

Hi from a new Kobo owner

Wed, 11 Apr 2018 11:53:31 GMT

Hi, I'm Teeg (pronounced Teej). I joined this site a couple months ago, after I got a Kobo Aura One for my birthday and I was searching for help with connecting it to Calibre. I've used Calibre and Sigil for years as tools to help with our homeschooling, but I'd only use them a few times a year, organizing the books we needed for the year, then putting them aside until time to prepare for the next year. After I got my e-reader, I began using Calibre much more frequently, and realized that I'd barely scratched the surface before as far as discovering what a great tool it is. Now it has a permanent home on my toolbar. My entire ebook library is routed through it, and it's a rare day that I don't open the program at least once. Currently, I'm working to organize all the e-books I've collected over the years. With so many books from so many different sources, my collection is rather jumbled right now, so I'm trying to work on it a little at a time to get the books' metadata correct, find covers for those that don't currently have one, create tags that fit the structure I need (for example, homeschooling books organized by year), and figure ways to tame an already large and constantly growing collection.

:thinking:I'm a Kindle Fire and MusicNotes (mtd) User. I am not one to provide any new info actually I'm being selfish as I hope to acquire new and useful information from this forum. However if I do find that I can provide any info I'll be more than glad to offer. ALWAYS KEEP IN MIND "*Knowledge*" has no meaning unless it is shared. Looking forward to many conversations within this forum. Wishing everyone the best of 2018. Regards, RealSimple :thinking:
