Plus, purchases through Kobo can support your local independent bookstore.


There’s nothing like sitting by a pool full of splashing kids, hanging out at the beach watching errant waves, or sitting in a park when a surprise rainstorm comes to make you wish your ereader was waterproof. Hark! Now it can be. The Kobo Aura H2O has a waterproof and dustproof screen- perfect for beachside/lakeside/poolside/inside the bath- and with two months of battery life, there’s no worries that you’ll run out of juice while you’re sippin’ a mimosa.

Want to win one? Here’s what to do: Submit an original photo and caption of the raddest place you’ve read a book. Be it an exotic locale, snuggled into a blanket next to your backyard fire pit, or participating in a silent read at a bar.
