Chapters Indigo, the largest bookstore in Canada has just unveiled their Black Friday campaign. It is being spearheaded by the Kobo Aura, with a massive $40 savings, bringing the total cost to $99. There is also a free sleep cover being thrown into the deal to make this offer even more compelling.
The Kobo Aura is likely the best e-reader the company has ever produced. The screen is flush with the bezel, so it has the same design as your smartphone or tablet. The big sell, is that it has bleeding edge e-Ink tech, giving you over a months worth of battery life and one of the largest online bookstores in the world.
Chapters is also unveiling a “Signed by the Author” program that has thousands of books available in stores all over Canada by the authors themselves. You can buy a brand new copy of notable books such as Mr Hockey: My Story by Gordie Howe, Yes Please by Amy Poehler or even Uganda Be Kidding Me by Chelsea Handler. If you are book shopping for someone this holiday season, an autographed title by their favorite author is a must buy.
