Kobo ereaders adopted by indies

Independent bookstores are adopting the Kobo ereaders (previously featured at Borders bookstores) and hoping to enhance their sales by offering their customers a full line of ereaders, ereading accessories, and ebooks from Kobo’s catalog.

The new deal struck by American Booksellers Associations and Ingram make help spark some new interest in Kobo, which has lagged behind the more popular Kindle and Nook brands of ereaders.
