eBooks are easy to access and read anywhere, with or without a Kindle. The apps to read eBooks are free and available from Amazon and Adobe and many other trusted sites.

An eBook is a digital version of your favorite hard cover and paperback books. You can read it on a portable device, like Amazon's Kindle, Barnes & Noble's Nook, Sony's eReader and many others, as well on Apple's array of products, including the iPhone, iPod, iPad, and Mac. You can also read eBooks on your personal computer, like you read your email and Facebook pages. The software that enables you to do this is free, easy to download and install, and comes from places you trust.

 

Everyone uses Adobe Reader to view documents at websites and government emails.Adobe Digital Editions is another free app, easy to use and install, and allows you to read books in the EPUB format, an international standard used to make the world's greatest literature available--FREE--to everyone everywhere. Here's their link: http://www.adobe.com/products/digitaleditions/

 

Amazon.com makes its entire catalog available, whether you have one of their great Kindle devices or not. The Kindle's new price of $139 is attracting millions of new customers. Kindle has built in Wi-Fi, so when you want to order or preview new books, you don't have to plug in a cord or find a network connection. You access Amazon's catalog from anywhere, the Metrorail, the hotel room, your office, your yard, even the beach, and find what you want. In seconds it's downloaded to your Kindle for reading. But if you don't have a Kindle, you can get the FREE app to read Kindle eBooks on your PC, your mobile phone or PDA, and any Apple device. I have Kindle for PC installed on our home computer and laptop, and use it to download and read my favorite new books. Here's their link: http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html?ie=UTF8&docId=1000426311&tag=googhydr-20&hvadid=6161309111&ref=pd_sl_c0q9u5y7v_b

If you want to read my book, Believable Lies, on your PC, you can download it as an Adobe PDF file and view it in Adobe Reader, or you can download it as RTF (Rich Text Format) and read it in Word. You can even download it as text, and read it in Notepad, or as HTML, and read it in your web browser. Smashwords offers thousands of user-friendly books, many free, and many at very low prices. My book is only $2.99. Why so cheap? Because no trees had to be cut to make paper, no type had to be set to print, and no advertising had to be purchased. This is truly the Green Solution. Smashwords.com also offers downloads to Droid and all other eReader devices, like iPhone and iPad, and can be accessed from anywhere via an internet connection. Smashwords.com also is a catalog for Border's bookstores via Kobo, their eBook catalog. if you don't find it there, go straight to http://www.smashwords.com.
