Irene has a question about eBooks. She writes: A friend of mine has written several novels, but they are only available in eBook form from Amazon. I do not own a Kindle. I do have a Samsung Tablet and a Windows 10 PC laptop. Can I purchase and read her books? Or would I have to buy something extra?


The good news is that you don’t need anything extra to read your friend’s books. You don’t say what format they’re in. Items sold on Amazon could be in their proprietary eBook format or they could be in the form of  a PDF.

If they are in PDF form, you can read them on your tablet and PC using Adobe Reader or any number of free PDF readers. For other eBook formats, I suggest downloading the Free Kindle App. You can get in the Google Play store for your tablet or in the Windows Store for your laptop. It won’t take more than a minute to download.
