One of the things I didn’t appreciate about an e-reader is how having the book cover on the device reminds me that I have a book to read in a way that Libby on my iPhone never has. My iPhone reminds me of the time. Of messages. Of reminders.

My Kobo reminds me of a story to be read.

A coffee mug sits next to a Kobo Libra 2 with the cover of “When Women Were Dragons” by Kelly Barnhill on its display.
