Remind me about eBooks

Beach Reader

Many people feel comfortable with the smell and feel of a book. Something they can pull from the shelf of a library or bookshop and start flicking through the pages, jumping from chapter to chapter, checking out the contents or index pages, and then falling asleep with it in a comfortable chair.

For the less romantically inclined, all this and more can be done with eBooks.

There are many valuable resources available in the form of eBooks which do not require running the gauntlet of long library queues, cranky librarians, parking police or red light cameras. Being available 24/7 is an added bonus, and of course no overdue fees.

Have you seen the Amazon Kindle or Stanza for iPhone or iTouch?
