Have you ever read your book in the bath tub?
Well I love to read in the bathtub and often do. And I spend so much time in the bath as it is so relaxing, I have to keep adding hot water. Generally there is not much hot water left when I finish as there is nothing worse than a cold bath.
Have you ever dropped your book in the bath tub and tried to catch it before it hit the water? Have you ever spilt your wine on the floor in the midst of this?
What a waste of wine but you won’t have to worry about wine wastage with this eReader!
The Solution, the Waterproof Kobo eReader
The solution to this potentially drenching problem is to purchase yourself a new Kobo Aura H2O eReader, the waterproof way to read. (And it is easier to hold than a book.)
|Product:||Kobo Aura H2O eReader|
|Cost:||Range $230.00 – $240.00 Australian Check for Current Price|
|Pros:||Light to hold, easy on the eyes and water and dust proof.|
|Cons:||None that I can name since it’s a comfortable reading device.|
|Other products:||Until recently this was the only waterproof eReader on the market. Other brands have waterproof covers available. With Kobo’s Aura H2O you don’t need one. In September/October 2016 Kobo released a second waterproof, high end, product onto the market. A review of this eReader, the Aura One, will be posted very soon.|

I am already the owner of a Kobo Auro eReader and really love it. Yes there are a lot of reviews on the internet on the pros and cons of one company’s eReader versus another’s. These are only the individual opinions of people and for them these pros and cons are absolute. So I am not going to compare devices. If you wish to wade (look more water) through a comparison check out Wikipedia.
I believe if you feel comfortable with an eReader the fine tuning often isn’t necessary. At my age I am interested in good, clearly presented reading material. Luckily I have good glasses and these, with my eyes, work very well with my Aura eReader. And all of the Kobo eReaders on the market today, including the H2O, have a wonderful front light system that doesn’t shine directly into my eyes. I have no trouble with my eReader having its funny little quirks as it happens only rarely. And as I do love reading in the tub my next Kobo will be the Aura H2O; a marvellous (or should I say awesome) eReader.
Worry Free Reading while Relaxing in the Tub.
(Or for that matter trekking in the desert.)
Ever since I can remember I have loved having a quick shower to get clean and then sitting in my claw foot bathtub to relax. While relaxing I have my glass of wine in one hand, a book in the other and often a treat within reach. I have often caught my breath when a book slipped but fortunately have never yet dropped one. This has saved my wine, or other beverage, for me to drink.
(As for the trekking, I haven’t done that in the great Australian Outback for a long while. EReaders weren’t around then but the H2O in spite of its name also handles the rigours of dust!)
Now with the new Aura H2O, there is something that will stop the angst if the eReader is dropped into the bath tub, or the toilet like some people do with their phones etc. (It’s hard to picture that one!) It is waterproof for up to 30 minutes. Since I don’t plan on leaving it submerged or submerging myself for that period of time (I don’t think I can hold my breath that long and I don’t own a snorkel) to read once I purchase this device I will be safe forever more when reading in the tub. Ps: except for the additional wrinkles.
In the Desert and on the Beach
In addition if you are in a dust storm in the middle of the desert, on the beach or near ploughed agricultural ground (when the wind is blowing) the Kobo Aura H2O is dust and proof. And when you are a beach bunny, sand – no problem. As soon as you get out of the storm or off the beach jump in the tub and while reading rinse off the eReader. Kobo provides a special drying cloth with this eReader .
The attributes and features of the Kobo eReader can be viewed on the ‘Why Buy Kobo eReaders‘ Page.
The final Word
All I can add to this is for you to do yourself a really big favour and head from my website over to the Kobo Store, get the eReader and some wonderful reading material. If you are the same as I am about going to the beach and reading (sunbaking is so boring on its own) and my compulsive ‘I love to read in the bathtub’ attitude (keep adding the hot water), I can see this becoming ‘you like to read in the bath tub’. The Aura H2O is a great little device.
Then become a beach bunny (or buck) or take up rugged trekking through the deserts. Then your new H2O eReader can show you its paces.
Once you get your Kobo Aura H2O please give me a brief report via my comment section below. Write both what you like and also dislike as it would be great to get a good range of your opinions.
