No e-reader? No problem

If you don’t have an e-reader, don’t let that stop you. Many free e-books can be read online or downloaded to your computer.

For example, if you fancy a freebie that’s only available in a Kindle e-reader format, you can read it on various devices using the free Kindle app. The same goes for e-books formatted for Kobo and Nook e-readers.

I explain this further in “How to Enjoy E-books Without Buying an E-Reader.”
