My Borders is selling both the wireless and the touch for 25% off as part of their closing sale. Thinking about picking one up for my parents in advance for the holidays.

I love my Kindle, but these seem like decent ereaders.

I received a Kobo Touch as a gift and I like it, and I used to swear I'd never use an e-reader.

I bought one when Borders stores first started closing. It is functional, thoguht I have a few gripes:

1. The page turning button on mine has already started to come loose. I've only had it for 4 months, and it started after the first month.

2. PDF files load weird sometimes, as do epub.

3. there is a sleep mode/power off mode glitch.

However, I didn't pay full price and love the e-paper format. If you are only paying ~60, I say go for it.
