    I bought this because I was happy with my previous e-reader, a Kobo Glo, until it died 13 months after I bought it. I am hoping that this Aura will last longer. So far, I am finding it to be very similar to the last one. One improvement is in the method used to change the font size. It is much easier to select the exact size of font that you want.
