* If you're a non-tech person new to e-books, ideally you'll need an e-reader device or tablet. (An Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble Nook, Apple iPad, Sony Reader, etc.) Or you can download free reading "apps" (small software applications) from the online stores right into most desktop computers, laptops, cell phones, and tablets. This will let you purchase and read e-books from those stores. After the first time, it's quick, easy, and enjoyable.
