Description

To make the reading experience better for ravenous booklovers who read for hours on end, and want a lightweight, portable alternative to heavy print books, we’ve delivered our most comfortable eReader yet with waterproof reliability, the choice of landscape or portrait mode, and the expanded access of book borrowing.

Discover a radical new look for Kobo eReaders
With an ergonomic curved design, and lightweight enough to hold for hours, Kobo Forma is our most comfortable eReader yet.

Push the limits of your reading experience
Try Kobo Forma’s new page-turn buttons to move through your story. Read in portrait or landscape mode, or set the text to change orientation automatically.

Embrace lightweight durability
Kobo Forma immerses you in your reading more than ever before, with a sturdy 8.0” HD Mobius Carta E Ink screen that feels lighter than air.

Dive into a story absolutely anywhere
Kobo Forma is fully waterproof from the inside out with HZO Protection™ and safe for the beach, the pool, or a soak in the tub.*

  • Meets requirements of IPX8 rating. Waterproof for up to 60 minutes in up to 2 metres of water.

Enlighten your reading with ComfortLight PRO
Kobo Forma’s adjustable front-light is easy on your eyes. It gradually reduces the blue-light exposure that keeps you alert throughout the day, so you can read before bed, then get right to sleep.

Shift into OverDrive with integrated eBook borrowing
Connect to your local public library right from Kobo Forma with built-in OverDrive.* Search for the eBooks you want and choose to borrow or buy — it’s that simple.

  • Dependent on library participation, available through most public libraries in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand. eBook availability will vary based on library.

Take your stories undercover
Exclusive to Kobo Forma, the Kobo SleepCover allows for hands-free reading at the perfect angle. Simply flip the front cover over, and attach it to the magnetic clasp.

Stay in sync no matter where you read
Extend your reading experience on your own smartphone or tablet with the free Kobo App. We’ll always remember where you left off, so you’ll never lose your place.
