I amlooking to buy an e-book reader and have heard a lot about Amazon’s Kindle. What are its pros and cons, and how do I get books on to it? Experts seem to assume everyone is born with an innate ability to just grasp these details.
Amazon’s e-book readers are easy to read due to Electronic Ink screens that look like paper and are quite simple to use. The most recent model offers a touch-sensitive screen (Kindle Touch, $169 at Dick Smith) while the most basic ($139) is controlled with five buttons. Users typically add books to these devices by paying Amazon with a credit card and downloading them over a wi-fi connection. Books of several formats can also be transferred from a computer.
