Get ready for Camp with Stuck on You

It is hard to believe but the school year is almost over. Since my husband and I are both working full time for the first summer in 6 years my kids are going to be doing their fare share of day camps.

Then I was challenged to test out a Kobo Glo HD for just 1 week to see if it could change the way I feel about e-readers and make the switch.

We decided that we were not going to bring any print novels along with us on our recent vacation to Brazil, instead we would load up the Kobo and our iPad and only read digitally. Unfortunately the Kobo Glo HD did not arrive in time to take along with us but I was able to install the Kobo App on my iPad and use that until I could test out the device directly. Continue Reading
