Welcome to another Good e-Reader Exclusive Contest! Today Good e-Reader and Kobo are partnering to give away three brand new Kobo Mini e-Readers! This is one of our biggest contests yet and is open to everyone.
The Kobo Mini has a pint size five inch touchscreen display running an older version of e-ink Vizplex. It has a resolution of 800×600 pixels and gives you the traditional 16 levels of grayscale. This is very small device that fits in any of your pockets and was designed to be extremely lightweight and portable. Underneath the hood dwells a 800 MHZ processor, which is the same one the original Kobo Touch had employed. There are 2 GB of internal storage for your ebooks, newspapers, and PDF files.
To enter the contest you need to LIKE the video and subscribe to our YouTube channel. We will be picking three winners at random in two weeks and announce them in the description of the video. Good Luck to everyone.
It seems like only last week that we had a contest (it was) and today we are running another free giveaway. Good e-Reader has 10 leather travel cases for the Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HDX. You can use it to protect your device when commuting or to use it as a kickstand to watch videos or use it as a digital picture frame. To enter, all you have to do is subscribe to the Good e-Reader Youtube Channel and drop a comment on the video, to let us know.
Welcome to another Good e-Reader Free Contest! Today we are giving away 15 iPad cases that come in red and black. These cases are exclusively compatible with the first and second generation models officially. You can turn the case into a stand to watch movies or television shows.
What do you have to do to win one of these? Its rather simple, just Subscribe to our Youtube Channel and drop us a line on the video that you did so. In one week we will draw out 15 people that commented and ship them out. This contest is valid in all countries in the world!
Today Good e-Reader is proud to run another free contest, which anyone in the world can enter. We have 20 Kindle e-Reader cases in three different colors we are giving away! These cases are compatible with all models of the e-reader except the Kindle Keyboard.
This new contest is our first YouTube exclusive one and we will be giving away 10 free cases to the first 15 people who Subscribe and comment on our video. We have an extra 5 cases in which we will be giving away at random to anyone who comments after the initial 10. The ones we pick at random will actually be able to decide what color they want, currently we have black, green and blue.
In order to enter the contest, simply subscribe to our channel and then comment on the Youtube Video. We will be shipping out the 15 cases as soon as people comment on the video and the extra 5 will be done on Monday! Good Luck.
We have another official Good e-Reader Contest today for an Amazon Kindle Paperwhite 2! This e-reader was the one used for our drop test and has very minor cosmetic wear and tear! Our Youtube viewers asked us to give this away and are listening. To enter the contest simply name all of the devices in the picture above and comment on this post. You can enter only once and we will do the draw this Friday at random. Good Luck!
Welcome to another exclusive Good e-Reader Contest! Today, we have a brand new Cybook Odyssey HD with Front-Light and an official red case to protect your e-Reader while you are out of the home!
The Cybook Odyssey HD features a six inch capacitive touchscreen display with a resolution of 1024×758 pixels. It uses the same type of XGA technology found on the Kobo Glo and Kindle Paperwhite. Underneath the hood is an 800 MHZ Texas Instruments Cortex A8 processor and 128 MB of RAM. The hardware is perfectly adequate for an e-reader and navigating the menu and opening books occurs very quickly.
You will have 2 GB of internal storage for all of your ebooks, and you can enhance it further via the Micro SD for up to 32 GB of additional memory. Battery life is also very solid with the 1600 mAh, which will normally provide up to a month of battery life. If you tend not to use the front light very much, you should be able to have it last a little bit longer. One of the ways this device conserves battery life is the automatic disabling of wireless internet access when you leave your reader idle. You can charge it via the accompanied Micro USB cable by plugging it into your computer.
This contest is available to anyone, in any country in the world. We will ship via standard ground shipping, so if you live overseas, be prepared to wait! What do you have to do to enter? Simply comment on this post about your favorite Movie based on a book. You can enter only once, and must have a DISQUS profile, so we can contact you if you win. As soon as we hit 100 comments we will award the e-Reader to one lucky winner! Good luck to everyone!
Kobo is launching its first interactive contest entitled “The Descent.” The essence of the game is requiring players to solve a maze of hidden clues and visit websites. Like any mystery, the path leads to a great reward — a $5,000 cash prize. As part of the game, players will be required to find clues and decipher symbols located within each story and online through Kobo’s dedicated contest site and social media channels.
Solving codes and ciphers will be the main aspect of this contest, which runs in parallel with the new book by Dan Brown that comes out on May 14th. The majority of clues will be available in three original short stories authored by J.F. Penn, which are free in the Kobo eBook Store. Penn is currently a featured Kobo Writing Life author. She is based in London and has a panache for all things thriller and mystery. Her studies provide the foundation for her historically based, yet modern thrillers, including the free ebooks on which this contest is based.
“The Descent” contest is open to residents of the US, UK, and Canada and runs from April 25 to May 14, 2013. You can visit the full contest website HERE! It is time to channel your inner codebreaker and earn a cool five g’s.

Welcome to another Good e-Reader Free Contest! Today we are giving away our review copy of the new Kobo Mini e-Reader. This is the latest 5 inch device, making it extremely pocket friendly. This contest is available to anyone, no matter what country you live in!
The Kobo Mini has a pint size five inch touchscreen display running an older version of e-ink Vizplex. It has a resolution of 800×600 pixels and gives you the traditional 16 levels of grayscale. This is very small device that fits in any of your pockets and was designed to be extremely lightweight and portable. Speaking of WIFI, it is available and can be used to surf the internet with the web-browser and allows you to purchase ebooks directly on the Mini. This is one of the lightest e-readers we have ever reviewed and gives the Ectaco Jetbook Mini and Wexler Flex One a run for their money. It weighs in at 134 g (4.73 oz) and the dimensions are 102 x 133 x 10 mm (4 x 5.2 x 0.4 in).
The contest to win this device is fairly straightforward! You notice that there are tons of e-readers in the picture we posted above. We took this picture today and feature some devices that have been released in the last two years. Tell us what e-Readers are in this picture, including the make and models! Comment on this post and on October 31st we will be doing the draw! We pay for the shipping and send you the tracking number, so you know when it is due to arrive!
