Anybody else hold their Kobo with your right hand?

I do. Unfortunately, whenever my Kobo awakes (or powers on), the screen display is momentarily upside down (as though you were holding it in your left hand.) It takes 3 seconds before it flips right side up.
This happens every time.

Wish we could configure our Kobo to start/resume with "right-handed orientation". Or it would start with the correct orientation, but, crazily enough, would flip upside down before switching back right side up!!!

Let me know if you also have this issue.

I have this issue too. It is very annoying. I have never yet read with the screen in any orientation other than portrait with buttons on the right, yet every single time I open the sleep cover, it switches to upside-down mode (sometimes I can see it start right-side up, but then it ALWAYS flips to upside-down, then back to right-side up but only if I tilt it up to give it a clue). I've tried closing the sleep cover with the reader vertical, with the reader horizontal, with the reader upside-down...it doesn't matter. The screen ALWAYS starts out upside down, no matter what I do. I wish Kobo would fix this.

I would like to share my reading experience on Kobo e-readers on Goodreads, like I am doing on my Kindle Oasis...
I do know that Goodreads is own by Amazon, but do you think it would be possible in the future ?

I really doubt it. To do it, Kobo would need to come to an agreement with Goodreads. And because of the Amazon involvement, I doubt that either side would be interested.

If you are a calibre user, you can use my Kobo Utilities plugin to get the reading status of the books and the Goodreads Sync plugin to update GR.

Thank you so much for your answer, it is pretty normal, but I am happy not being a calibre user, too many complications to synchronise reading activity... I think implicity is the way to success, I don't have my PC all time with me and I prefer not to start my PC at evening to only synchronise my reading activity...
It's already a big effort using Adobe Digital Editions to put my not Kobo ebook in my ereader ...

I hold my Kobo with my right hand most of the time. But givehn that I have the original H20, rotation is not an issue.

My suggestion:
While we are in the ''Activity'' menu and see the statistics for the book we are currently reading, to be able to return directly to the book, by clicking on it. Unfortunately, now the only way to get back to the book is to go to the Main menu (or ''My books'') and select it.

Have different brightness icons when light is completely off and when it's on

Rationale for this suggestion: occasionally, when I'm in a completely dark room, I turn on the brightness from 0% to 1%. The next day, in the daytime, I read on my Kobo Forma forgetting that the brightness is on, and wading battery because I don't need the light at all in the daytime.



Maybe when brightness is completely off, the icon could be the same sun, but without the rays. I guess it'll look like just a circle.

An indication that the light is off is probably a good idea. But, I don't think you will actually be able to tell the difference in battery runtime between having the light off and at 1%.

Comfort light auto adjust set to earlier than 9pm bedtime. In my phone & pc, the night mode setting is to specify the wakeup and bedtime (which i usually set at 7am & 7pm).
