Kobo hardly ever discounts their entire line of e-readers, but they are running sales on every single model. This is the perfect time to pick up the Forma or Libra H2O. Each of these have a bookstore that can be used to purchase ebooks, manga and a slew of other content. You can borrow from a supported Overdrive library, browse and checkout the books, right on the Kobo.
