I recently set up a Rakuten Kobo account and bought a number of ebooks but my eyes strain from reading on my smartphone.

Does anyone have any recommendations for a ereader device? i am looking to buy one.

I did not know this......but the price....heartache :(
Yeah price is pretty steep. Similar to kindle. But NLB has so many ebooks that I don't think I'll pay for another book. Also it really helps the eyes. Anyway I had 2 kindles previously and their lifespan was about 5 years? So hopefully the kobo clara will last that long or longer.

Did you order your kindles online? I am looking to get the Clara but also on the lookout for cheaper options, if available, so far, I identified Kobo Forma, but its like USD$400..,.:(

I paid for a new Likebook Mars on eBay for S$200. It's well worth it. Can change font, add storage. There's a new model now.

Usually sells for $300. It's a 7.8 inch 300 dpi screen, perfect for novel reading. I can't stand small screens.
