As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a shesconnected community manager, working on a Kobo project. Since I began using the Kobo ereader, my reading habits have completely changed for the better. As much as I love to read, with four kids sucking up all of my energy, I was finding the only time I could actually do it was after I had gone to bed. We all know what happens then, right? Yes, 10-15 minutes, and I would be out cold with a book on my chest. If I was lucky, I’d wake up to turn out the light before my hands fell asleep and the book hit the floor!
But since I got my Kobo, I’m reading tons more because it’s always with me. It’s so light and portable, it has a home in my purse instead of on my bedside table. I never miss an opportunity to read, whether it’s in the carpool line, waiting for an appointment, or hanging out in the kitchen while making dinner (one of the only times everyone seems to leave me alone at home!).
This week, something very exciting happened for Kobo. My little friend had a featured role in NBC’s The Office, when Darryl resoved to read more, but then felt like he had to hide his paperless ereader from everyone, since he works for a paper company. As usual, the show was hilarious, and Kobo got lots of great exposure. In case you missed it, you can see the entire episode, “The Ultimatum” here.
Well everyone enjoyed watching Darryl sneak around with his Kobo so much, that the concept of a contest tied to the idea was born! You could win one of four Kobo ereaders or 10 free ebooks by visiting Kobo’s facebook page and commenting on the post, “What are you ereading in the Office?” If you’re feeling REALLY creative, take a picture of yourself hard at work in your office, and submit it under the Photo Contest tab. Soon, you could be sneaking around your own office with your own Kobo!
