Kobo Purchased from Hugobooks

Hugobooks is now selling the Kobo Mini and the Kobo Glow. All purchases made through the built-in ebooks store on devices bought from us will credit Hugobooks. It’s the most convenient way to read ebooks and support Hugobooks. (See Sony, Nooks, Other Kobos, etc, if you already own a Kobo.)
