Contest| Why I’m taking the 7 Day eReading Challenge to fall in love with reading again

I like to think that I am rediscovering what it means to live a balanced life. Slowly working on my physical and mental health since the beginning of 2016, I quickly realized that as someone who used to devour books, I had lost my love of reading. It’s why when the team at Kobo approached me to take a 7 Day eReading Challenge, I knew I owed myself the opportunity to fall in love with reading all over again. Easier said than done? Only the next seven days will tell – and I’ll be sharing my entire experience with you all.

Did I also mention that I am giving one lucky Canadian the opportunity to WIN a brand new Kobo Glo HD of their very own just for following along in my journey? Come see what the next seven days will entail and how you too can rediscover the joy of reading and finding yourself.


By enhancing my reading experience, I now have the comfort of the clearest most “book-like” 6″ HD Carta E Ink touchscreen with fully adjustable ComfortLight technology. I can conveniently hold onto the Kobo Glo HD while on the streetcar, bus and subway or while sitting in the sun with Canela. I also can discover my next great read with personalized recommendations, free previews and reviews or by simply browsing the Kobo eBookstore.

If I forget my eReader at home, I can also access my favourite new book via the Kobo App which can be downloaded at and allows me to flip feverishly through the pages on my mobile device or tablet. AND my book syncs across all my devices to keep track of where I last left off. Genius!

The Kobo Glo HD is a convenient addition to my day to day life and chances are if you see me running around the city over the next week, I’ll have mine in my hand while I read a few books I’ve been wanting to read for a long time.


Kobo Glo HD is the perfect complement to the reading experience you know and love when you want added comfort, convenience and portability. Enjoy the comfort of the clearest, most book-like 6” HD Carta E Ink touchscreen with customizable fonts, sizes and margins. Read in direct sunlight with the anti-glare screen, or in complete darkness with the built-in adjustable ComfortLight. Kobo Glo HD is lighter than a hardcover book and lets you store thousands of eBooks. Take your entire library with you wherever you go and easily access new books from a catalog of over 4 million, anytime. Read an entire eBook on a single charge with up to 2 months of battery life* and enjoy the freedom of leaving your charger behind.”

I have tasked myself with reading three books in seven days – no easy task but one that I’m going to give my best effort! When Sorry Isn’t Enough, Smarter Faster Better & The Dark Side of the Light Chasers are three books that resonate with my life right now and can help to give me the inspiration I need to get through the busy day to day I live. I look forward to reading them both on my Kobo Glo HD and on my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge using the Kobo App. With so many convenient ways to read thanks to Kobo, this challenge should be one that I am able to conquer and use to restart the passion of reading.

So, who wants to win a Kobo Glo HD of their very own worth $139.99 CAD?
