With our largest and most lightweight design, and new page-turn buttons to move you through your story, Kobo Forma is Kobo's most comfortable eReader yet.

Choose landscape or portrait mode on a durable 8.0” HD Carta E Ink screen.

ComfortLightPRO offers the best light any time of day, and waterproofing means you can soak up a story anywhere, even beneath the surface. Kobo Forma is where the future of reading takes shape.

Don’t forget your Kobo accessory! : The Kobo Forma Sleepcover is available to purchase separately.

Made from soft PU leather, the versatile Kobo Forma SleepCover allows for both hand-held and hands-free reading. Flip the front cover into a stand, and enjoy reading in either portrait or landscape mode. Kobo Forma automatically wakes up when you open the cover, and goes back to sleep when you close it.

The Kobo Forma Sleepcover is available in Black or Plum.

    This is my first e reader and it's terrific. It's easy to use, nice large screen which adapts automatically to night time reading, abililty to customise the text to my requirements. It connects to my wifi and any books I buy are instantly downloaded.. Strongly recommend the Kobo Forma.
