Travel & Lifestyle | How Kobo changed the way I read & how you can WIN during out #KoboGLBhaiku Twitter Party!

Earlier this year you’ll remember that I shared my renewed love of reading while I took place in the #Kobo7 7 Day eReading Challenge with Kobo (click here to see how it went and what I read!) I quickly came to realize that in the busy world we live in, having my e-reader with me has allowed me to keep up with a healthy reading habit. To celebrate the 2016 Giller Light shortlist, alongside fellow book lover Casie Stewart, I am co-hosting an exciting Twitter Party on November 2 @ 8pm EST  and I have all the details on Kobo’s latest contest. Come see all the ways you can enter to win with us!

Reading is one of the easiest ways I can unwind. Like many of you, I fill my day with To-Do List’s and errands, family & friends. But when I take even just an hour for myself to sit down and immerse myself in a new book or old favourite, it’s as though the world itself is put on hold. The portability of my kobo is perfect to throw in a small bag when I leave in the morning. Whether on the streetcar, plane or just soaking in the tub. It’s one of my favourite possessions and one of the easiest ways to unwind. 

To celebrate my passion for reading, Kobo asked me to join my dear friend Casie in helping to celebrate this year’s Giller Light shortlist. So on November 2nd @ 8pm EST we are doing just that!



RSVP is required for the Twitter Party in order to win, so simply fill out the form below to join in on the excitement with Canadians from coast-to-coast!

Also, Kobo is hosting an amazing #KoboGLBhaiku contest – enlisting book lovers from across the country to share—in haiku format—which of the top 6 Giller nominated books they think should win on November 7th during the Giller Light Bash.
