“We always go back to our customers, to the people who read everyday, to learn how we can make their reading lives better. With Kobo Elipsa, we meet the needs of people who don’t just want to read a book; they want to engage with it—mark it up, highlight, write in the margins, or in a notebook of their own, because that is how they get the most out of the books, articles and documents they read.” — Michael Tamblyn CEO, Rakuten Kobo
