Beginning today, The Bookworm of Edwards will be able to offer a total e-reading experience for their customers, including a full line of eReaders, eReading accessories, and ebooks from Kobo’s catalog of nearly 3 million titles. At the center of the program, will be new e-readers from Kobo, a leader in eReading with more than 10 million registered users worldwide.
