Dog Years

I read off a Kindle Basic* and a select few book books. I am looking for a used Kobo Aura/H2O or a Paperwhite to upgrade to, at a fair price. (If you know/are someone with either, please drop me an email at abhijith at keyaar dot in)

* For people living away from their bookshelves, I can’t recommend the Kindle enough. (This is coming from a person who wrote a long-ish manifesto [signed in PMS 805-U] on printed books not so long ago.) And if you are at it anyway, try and buy a thing that is lit from some side off the screen. I’ve spent countless train-journeys trying to think up ways to piss people off before switching on the overhead lights.
