RIP Kobo

My kobo1, appears to be no longer capable of holding a charge. I plug it in overnight and it seems like it’s charged, but then a few hours later (during which time it isn’t being used) and I see this:

My kobo won't hold a charge :(

I guess I shouldn’t be too surprised, as it is more than 4 years old and in electronics time that’s like 1000 years old. Plus I’ve not been able to get it to connect to my computer for quite some time now, which means that I haven’t been able to put any new books on it. I was hoping to read the books that I already had on there that I hadn’t yet read though. I’m in the middle of reading The Better Angels of Our Nature: Why Violence Has Declined by Steven Pinker. Though I can’t tell you exactly how far because my goddamn kobo won’t hold a charge. Guess it’s time to start looking at what’s happened in eReader technology in the last four years…

    Well I just bought the new kobo a few months back.
    I had my Sony for over 7 years..
    The new kobo is great..but people are saying you only get about 2 years on average out of kobo…so if mine goes that quick I will go back to a Sony…happy shopping..

    I LOVE my Kindle and it is more than 4 years old and still works great. The only issue I have is that my comic-book apps don’t work very well on Kindle, so I also have a tablet. The tablet is super old but I only use it for Hoopla and Marvel Unlimited, and games.
