E-readers now available at Booky Joint


Mammoth’s only locally-owned bookstore, the Booky Joint, now carries an electronic reader designed for independent bookstores, according to owner Dave Leonard.

Called the Kobo, the readers range in price from $80 to $121, with a $49.99 sale on the Kobo Mini scheduled for this weekend, Dec. 21-23.

“It’s the smallest e-reader in the world,” said Lane Jacobson, an employee of Booky Joint. “It’s a great way to support the Booky Joint, as a stipend from all the e-books that you purchase for the Kobe goes to the Booky Joint.”

The Booky Joint is located at the Mammoth Minaret Mall near Vons.
