travelling with Kobo Touch

Hi all

I think I've made a big (well, annoying, anyhow) mistake. We're going traveling for 6 months, bringing along a Nexus tablet. I just bought a Kobo because I thought I could read books from my local public library on it. Looks like I need to have a computer to use the Kobo? Is this right? We aren't planning to lug around the laptop.

So then I thought I'd try the Android app....says it syncs between a Kobo and tablet. I can't figure out how the Kobo and Nexus connect, though. Can anyone help? I don't want to buy a whole lot of books-that was the whole idea!

Thanks for any help.

I'm can't see a way of getting library books onto a Kobo ereader using only a Nexus... however there are other ways.

There is the OverDrive Media Console for Android which would allow you to download and read library books on the Nexus. I'm not sure if the Android Kobo app can read such books - I suspect you would be stuck with using the reader built into OverDrive.

It is possible, though a bit fiddly, to transfer books from the Nexus to a Kobo Touch via Dropbox. You use the Android Dropbox app to transfer the epub files from Nexus to Dropbox, and then use the Kobo's web browser to log into Dropbox and download the epub files. However, as far as I'm aware, OverDrive books transferred that way won't work on the Kobo.

Anyone else got any ideas?
