Something exciting in eReader world: Kobo Touch

First - I love my Sony Reader.  For three years it has accompanied me everywhere - home, travel, work,'s been there.  I think I might spend more time with it than I do with Hubby!  This being said - today something new was announced that has me intrigued.  Kobo announced a new Reader for it's lineup...the Kobo Touch.

I've never been much for touch screen anything.  The thought of fingerprints on my screens is enough to drive me crazy.  It's why I won't buy an iPad (though I can't deny the experience is great).  It's why I hesitate with an iPhone (though my next phone will probably be one as long as hubby gets me those anti-fingerprint screen protectors he promised).   The Sony Touch Reader holds no appeal to me.  Yet - this one intrigues me.

I don't know if it's the price point ($140ish) or the seemingly simple interface.  Perhaps it's the integration of Reading Life, Kobo's social reading platform.   Either way - I know I'll be moseying down to Chapters next month to see if it's worth the fuss.

A girl can always use a backup reader, right?
