    Key Features

    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.

    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.*

    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.
