| Kobo eBooks on Other Devices

Here at the Voracious Reader we want you to have your books your way. While we know most of you love the printed page and physical book, we also know that many of you who travel,who need to vary your font size, who like to read on your ipad when you wake at 3am or who want to have the next
book in a sequel the moment you finish a book, may well want to purchase ebooks.

Now, in a best of both worlds scenario, you can have your ebook and help assure that our independent bookstore will be here to offer all those things an online experience can't.

The Voracious Reader is happy to announce our partnership with Kobo. This allows us to provide you with over 3 million eBooks that can be read on a variety of devices while still supporting The Voracious Reader. You only have to make a Kobo account through our website. You can click on the

Q: What if I already own an earlier generation Kobo eReader? Can I shop for eBooks through your store?

Then, when you next use your device, sign out of the old account and sign in using the new account name. You can then search and buy eBooks either through the device or through the web, and continue your much-appreciated support of this store.

Q: Does Kobo allow sharing of books between Kobo devices?
A: At this time it is not possible for a Kobo customer to lend or share eBooks from their library with another person. The eBooks in your Kobo library are tied directly to your account and password.

Q: Once purchased, if a book is DRM protected, is there a limit to the number of downloads?
A: If a file is DRM protected it may be downloaded 6 times in total. This restriction is set forth by the publisher and is the same for all DRM files.
