I have a Kindle third generation and I just LOVE it. It fits in my purse and I take it everywhere I go. There is a site you can get free books or you can purchase them, whichever. Our library up town is checking into getting a "lending library" started in order to share books with us folks that have e-readers, I am excited about that. I love to read and I don't want any library to go out of business, but I just can't hold a paper book anymore since I've been reading my thin Kindle.
Due to not being able to hold a book especially in bed due to my arthritis I bought my first Kindle. Because it was the first one, I had to have a light on to read so I purchased an iPad. The iPad came in handy while I was on vacation as I had the internet as well as my books. I synced the Kindle and the iPad and am able to read on both of them.
When in bed, I use the iPad. When in my lounge, I use the Kindle. I get all my books downloaded from the library. All books are free and I have 14 days in which to read them. When I have an appointment anywhere, I take the Kindle as it is easier to carry in my purse. Love having both, would not think of selling either one.
When looking for an eBook reader, the first question to ask is whether you need WiFi to set up the reader? If so, ask that they help you set it up in the store, especially if you have no WiFi at home.
Do you want a color eReader or just eInk? With a color eReader, you can download your pictures. Do you want to do more than reading books with your eReader? Once you know what you want to do with the reader and have reviewed the different readers online, check the prices and get the best deal possible.

Here are questions related to Buying an eBook Reader.
I have never had a Kindle or reader of any kind. If any of you have purchased one, has it been a good product and how do you use it? It is my understanding that it does more than just download books. Is it like an iPad? Any feedback will influence whether I buy one or not. Thank you as usual! Blessings.
