My youngest son has asked for a Kindle, electronic reader. He loves to read, as much or more than I do. I have heard about electronic books, but I really know nothing about them. I do like the idea of being able to walk around with several dozen or more books to read in a package the size of a paperback. So tell me what you know about them. Specifiacally, what about Kindle or Sony E reader, or any of the other hardware. Where does one get books? How much are they? Do they have a selection of books for young readers?
Thoughts, opinions, suggestions welcome.
What about the various formats of the books? Epub? PDF? HTML? Others?
