i got this lookbook as a gift and it didnt come with instructions, how do i turn it on what are the contents that came with it? i had to go and purchase a usb cord thinking that would help charge it so i can turn it on but it will not come on at all. HELLPP
A friend of mine had recently purchased one of these products. She went on and on about how great it was! Decided to give it a try since I absolutely love to read. It was a great product for the price. I liked the free KOBO books that came on it plus I've purchased a few more. I've even been able to get my fiance to appreciate leisure reading again. I'm very satisfied with this product. It serves its purpose well!...

Okay, first off I love my lookbook! BUT, the price they have on here is CRAZY!! Thats way to much! Walmart sells them for $70!! And you dont pay shipping... Just thought Id make that aware to the next person trying to buy one!Read More
This was the absolute worst. I bought it the first time and it lasted for one day then it would turn back on again. I took it back and it last about 1 1/2 months which is about 3 1/2 books later. Then just like the first time it turn off and would not come back on. I thought that it need a real good charging so I left it on the charger for a day. I attempted to turn it on again and still nothing. Needless to day I will be taking it back to the store and getting my money back. I guess you get what you pay for so I just to save up my money and buy myself a color Nook for Xmas. So if your looking for an inexpensive ereader I would suggest you take your chances with another brand but if you can hold out spend a little more money on a better quality product. That's what I'm going to do.Read More
I absolutely love my lookbook. Best gift I have received in a while.Read More
This purchase did not meet my expectations. There are good points and bad points. I love the color screen and the fact that it is wifi. The bookstore has a great selection. However, it is almost impossible to read outside and the battery life is awful. I can read for approximately 3 hours before I have to recharge the battery. It really is not a pleasurable reading experience when you have to sit next to an electrical outlet to insure that you have enough battery to last as long as your eyes do!Read More
When I purchased the Lookbook, all it did was read books. This was good enough for the price. Then it started updating itself and suddenly it reads newspapers, magazines, and pdf files, including downloads from my pc and files loaded onto an SD Chip. The colors are good and the wifi works well. I can't wait to see what the next update does. The keyboard layout is better than my previous ebook reader since it has a row of numbers on top. The hardware forward and back buttons have a nice feel also. All in all, it's a pretty good reader for the price.Read More
This is a good buy considering the free books kobo offers to download. I had to have patience to figure out that I had to be signed in to my internet to make the wifi to work. The screen is a good size and I like not having a touch screen to leave fingerprints on. It is sensitive to download. Where I live the signal can get lost. But overall I am happy with the lookbook and kobo bookstore. Just be sure to go online to kobo bookstore first and set up an account and download the manual. These tips worked for me.Read More
I bought this as a replacement for the Nook, (which I lost in an accident), and it's not a bad replacement. It's inexpensive and easy to navigate. Books are easy to download, though it doesn't seem to be set up for Kobo's periodicals just yet. Basically, all tit does is read books; it has not web browser or media playing functions. The keyboard buttons are a little small, though, and the directional button is a little tricky to use. The Wi-fi works fairly well, (the Nook always gave me trouble at my house); and the lack of 3G isn't a big problem. The only drawback is that books are stored in a condensed archive file and must be managed online; tho it supposed to be possible to get books from other sources; a process I haven't tried. All in all, you get a good color wireless bookreader, at a low price. Perhaps there might be softwear upgrades for in in the future, I don't know.Read More
When I heard about electronic e-books, I was very skeptic. I love to collect books and love the feeling of actually holding one in my hands. So I would never think about actually purchasing an e-book for myself, until I received the Lookbook as a gift for my birthday. Boy, was I amazed at how much I LOVE this thing!! It has an awesome color screen, it's lightweight, and came with 150 free books! I would definitely recommend this to anyone.Read More
I received the reader as a gift - hubby tired of my books scattered around! The first one just didn't work - don't know why, but the store readily replaced it with a new one, and i use it nearly every day... i have nearly a hundred books of my choice on it (plus a few of the free books from KOBO)... i take it to work with me, to the doctor's office (their magazines are very stale), or anywhere one has to wait. it isn't quite as small as the nook or the kindle, but for the price (***), it is color, you change pages rapidly, (no flipping the pages and waiting for them to turn just like a "real" book... i don't need that)... over all, it is one of my most prized possessions! my ONLY issue is trying to find a protective cover for it - i've been using a "netbook" sleeve, but its too big, so the lookbook slides around in it.if anyone has found a suitable cover that's padded, i would love to know... Thanks!!Read More
