I have a feeling that old-fashioned paper-and-ink books will be around forever. There's just something uniquely wonderful about holding a book and turning the pages. But that doesn't mean you can't also have a ton of digital books filling up your digital shelves.
I like eBooks for their convenience - it makes your entire library portable. You can make notes, search the text, and you'll never damage them, lose them or wear them out.
If you're interested in getting into eBooks, you've probably already heard about the Kindle. Amazon is the biggest name in eReading and Amazon's Kindle is the most popular eReader on the planet.
But it's not just a physical gadget for reading books on the go. It's also a fully functional and free computer program.
