Ever since I was a kid, I have loved reading. In elementary school, I could never get enough of the Babysitter Club series and would beg my mom to buy me the next one as soon as it came out. As a teenager, I still loved reading and that love hasn’t stopped since I became an adult. Nowadays, I don’t get as much time to read as I would like but that doesn’t mean I don’t still love checking out a new book from the library or downloading one on my eReader whenever I get the chance.
I also made sure that my kids had the opportunity to love reading as much as I do. In fact, I just wrote “7 Tips & Tricks for Getting Your Kids to Love Reading” because I feel it’s that important. One of my New Year’s resolutions is to read more and to venture outside of my comfort level and read books I might not otherwise choose. I mean, what’s the worst that can happen, right? Maybe I’ll just find a new book or author and fall completely in love with them!
Kobo is a great way to discover new books, authors and genres that you might not have chosen for yourself before. Since I am branching out and checking out new subjects, I decided to head over and check out Biographies and Memoirs. I don’t usually find too many non-fiction books that hold my interest but since this is about trying new things, I decided to create a collection of biogrpahies & memoirs that I would love to read.

Kobo eReaders make it easy for you to find new books to read, anywhere. I love my eReader and love being able to take it with me when I visit family, in the car if I’m going to waiting for my tween or teen after youth group at church, on vacation, pretty much anywhere. It’s so much easier to download all the books that you want to read, than to carry around a bunch of books with you. If you already have an eReader, you can also download the Kobo App and still find great books to read! The Kobo app isn’t just for eReaders though. You can download it on iPhones, iPads, your desktop computer, tablet or your cellphone. Perfect for when you want to start a book on one device and want to continue reading on another. Just log into your account and continue reading where you left off. It’s as easy as that!
