Asda will be selling Kobo's most basic e-book reader for just 67 quid this Christmas, the retail giant wanted us to tell you.

The Kobo includes Wi-Fi but lacks the touchscreen sported by its slightly pricier, better big bro, the Kobo Touch, one of Reg Hardware's favourite e-book readers this year.

Asda is selling the Touch for £107, a couple of quid off the standard price. The basic Kobo is £20 cheaper. Both have a 6in E Ink screen.

The reader comes with 100 out-of-copyright classics pre-loaded, but there are many, many more titles available on the Kobo online bookshop.

Asda will be selling the Kobo from Friday onwards. ®
