Thanks to the waterproof coating, the Kobo Aura H2O (edition 2) is even better protected against water than its predecessor. Handy for when you're dreaming away in the bath or reading on the edge of a swimming pool. On the 6.8-inch Full HD e-ink screen you can read your e-books without annoying reflections. On top of that, thanks to the blue light filter, you can also read before you sleep, without having to worry about having a sleepless night. You can store about 7,500 books on the 8GB memory; enough choice even for the most fervent reader. Don't worry about small, unreadable letters, because you can easily adjust the font and font size to suit your needs.
