A really good reader

I ended up downloading Kobo after Flipkart shut down and transferred all my purchased books to Kobo. I liked the fact that it shows the actual number of pages left to read in a chapter, and not kindle’s difficult to track locations. Also, the reader doesn’t end up re-flowing pages once you search for text, which is something the kindle does and is very annoying. The reader mostly stays out of the way and lets you enjoy the book you are reading.

Metaphor Island

One of the few authentic pieces of work on the Nilgiris Eco System. It covers the Montane Shola Grassland complexes in different regions, the forests along the perimeter slopes and the human dominated landscapes in central Nilgiris in detail backed by excellent photographs. The books leaves us with probing questions as well as worrisome conclusions about climate change. Is this the time to act? Read this book, do your research but be part of the conservation network.....that’s critical.

Good to have kobo

KOBO is more costlier than other e-book platform but your dictionary is par excellent and one enjoys finding more thesaurus. Back ground can be adjusted according to ones need and have more soothing effect on eyes. Esoteric books like history of the western philosophy by Russell is not available on other platform(e-book )….regards for the KOBO
