Fortunately, the folks at Kobo have worked out a way where you can have it both ways — the convenience of digital and the support of local!
It’s called eRead Local, and basically it makes it easy for you to buy ebooks…through your local bookstore. Everyone wins!
When you sign up, you get five bucks towards your first e-purchase (enough to buy, say, some of these…), and your local bookstore gets five bucks, too. The bookstore also gets a chance to win prizes, like free Kobo eReaders and an in-store event featuring a bestselling author.
