I have been looking at e book readers, and the Kindle looked good, as does the new Sony 6" reader.The problem with the Kindle, it seems to me, is that you are hooked to Amazon as a book supplier, whereas I tend to use Waterstones. The Sony will read most ebook formats and .pdf.It is not wi fi.I am inclined towards the Sony ( Iknow it is dearer) as I want flexibilty of sourcing. Is there a legal way to buy Amazon e Books for the Sony? I believe there is a Kindle App for the iPad or iTouch? Alternatively if I buy the Kindle, can I buy from sources ither than Amazon, such as Waterstones?
I was concerned about being tied to Amazon prior to buying my Kindle so did a bit of research as to what was available and of course at what price.
I was happy with the selection of both paid for and free books and bought a Kindle for my wife and very soon after bought a second for myself with absolutely no regrets ~ best value for money on my opinion
Check out their library and see if it meets your needs ~ and of course you can also read PDFs on the Kindle as well
Having had a quick look at Calibre, it looks as if it will be OK. Also I understand Amazon have a free App for a PC such that you can buy kindle books without buying a Kindle, so I will probably go for the Sony soon. Will mark as resolved. Thanks again, and Happy Christmas.
