    About Nate Hoffelder (11394 Articles)
    Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

    1. Dunno about the kobo thing, I just used kobo.com to order and went all the way to the checkout page. Other people on the post you mentioned have also been able to do this and mentioned so in the comments. Though the author of the post is still claiming to have problems. Not sure what might cause that.
