Have you ever considered reading an Ebook, but just never came round to it?

What is "Read an Ebook Week?"


Well, you can get more info on the story behind the week by visiting ebookweek.com, but the short version is that the week started as a way to open the world of Ebooks to the general public. To read an Ebook you do, after all, need some tools that you may not have already in your household. That is: you need a device to read the book on.


The devices to read an Ebook are widely available and if you´re just starting out, you may not want to spend half the contents in your pigge bank. Luckily this is not nescessary! In fact, you can start with a budget as low as 0, nill, nothing, zero, nada, no money at all!


Now, isn´t that a good reason to get started on Ebooks?


How do I get a reading device for Ebooks?


Depending on how you want to read Ebooks, there are many solutions, you might want to consider. I will list some of them here, but the list is by no means emptying!


If you read on your PC: Adobe Digital
If you read on any Android device: Kobo (use the QR-code below) or Aldiko
Kobo QR Code

If you read on your iPhone: don´t worry, the ereader is already installed


Designated ereaders are Kindle, Kobo, Sony and a whole bunch of others which are most easily attained by either walking into a store to get it or by googling ereaders and selecting the one you prefer.


Since I have never used designated Ereaders I wouldn´t be able to recommend which one is the best, but from what I hear, the Kindle provides you with a very good reading experience - just remember that if you read children´s books or other books with colored pictures, it´s a good idea to check if the Ereader, you´ve set your eyes on, has a color screen...


Are you going to get yourself some good reads at good prices?
Are you participating in this international Read an Ebook Week?
