M291_Kandahar_100824_IMAGEONLY-1-1-150x150.jpgI reprint this blog post from the Kobo official blog in full as a public service:

We have 150 Kobo eReaders ready to go to the Canadian forces libraries in Afghanistan. The eReaders are loaded with 100 great classics plus a wide selection of Best Sellers generously donated by HarperCollins Canada, Harlequin, McClelland & Stewart, Random House of Canada and Simon & Schuster Canada.

To help our troops select their next great read we’d like to include our Kobo community’s Recommendations and Reviews!

To support our troops:
1. Review the list of included Best Sellers
2. Let the troops know which books you think they’ll most enjoy in a comment to this blog.

Post your comments by September 5th.
