Why people who do not have e-readers should NOT be afraid of e-books

Posted: May 27, 2012 in Uncategorized

I know a lot of people who think that e-books are only for people who shell out the bucks for e-readers, whether it’s for a Kindle, Nook, or Sony e-reader.  Well, you’re wrong. The fact of the matter is, that if you are reading this, you are most likely on a device that will allow you to read an e-book.

The lists of apps put out by Amazon can be found here. Barnes and Noble apps can be found here.

Got an iPhone? Amazon AND Barnes and Noble have an app for that.

Android phone? Amazon and Barnes and Noble have you covered.

Windows phone? Amazon is thinking of you.

Blackberries are also loved by Amazon.

If you have a PC, you just have no excuse: Amazon and Barnes and Noble both have very easy desktop readers for you to use.

If you have a Mac, You also have no excuse, there are apps for you on both.

The advantages in e-books is portability, ecological preservation (Don’t have to cut down all those trees and burn all that gas transporting for an e-book!), price and convenience. I love being able to read on the bus, in long lines, in the middle of a boring lecture or class. (Bonus points if you take notes on a laptop.)

So, there isn’t really an excuse. Read more books! Books are easier to acquire! Books are easier to read! You can have a hundred books waiting for you on the computer that you take anywhere!

What are you waiting for!
