The Kobo Libra 2 is pretty great

If you haven’t gone Kobo yet, I’m back to re-recommend having upgraded my Forma to a Libra 2. Same basic form factor and physical buttons, but the Libra 2 is way faster and the buttons are less mushy. Also charges with USB C at long last.

Kobo ecosystem pluses remain amazingly good integration with Overdrive (super smooth with Multnomah County’s library) and a decent Pocket integration.

One downside: the Dropbox integration seems to be gone, which was a great way to side load ebooks purchased direct from the publisher (small presses with bad distribution reach). Luke Savage’s The Dead Center, which I’ve been anticipating for months and months, isn’t readable until I do something barbaric, like use a cable to connect to a computer.
