Because gardening advice is necessarily one-size-fits all, and your garden has very specific conditions.

Horror Glasgow, Ellen: Whispers in the Dark (collected ghosts). v1. 09 Dec 2018

Aura One freezes when reading pdf and charging

Here's one sample file: https://electrobian.files.wordpress....0135026458.pdf That file to reader and connect to charger. Then read and zoom pdf. I'm so disappointed to this reader. Had to reset it few times, because it's completely frozen. All books and settings are lost. Why this reader do not save settings to cloud? I really need pdf support because all my work stuff are pdf's.. And Kobo support can't help. Do not buy this e-reader!
