You Do NOT Need an eReader

Free Apps to purchase ebooks directly from your computer or other devices are available for Windows, OS X, Android, iOS and sometimes Linux. Yes, you can buy your first ebook as a test right from your computer. There are even free ebooks so you do not have to spend a dime to test what ebooks are all about.

NOTE: If you purchase an ebook on your computer from a specific vendor and then later buy a portable ereader device from that vendor, all of your previously purchased books will automatically load to your new ereader.

Better yet, if you buy an Android or iOS device (such as a full or small sized tablet) and then load the vendor’s app to that device… once again all of your purchases will load to that device. You can even load apps from all of the vendors and shop wherever you want. That’s what J.C. does, though he has a few additional tricks for pulling any vendor’s books into his own preferred reader app called Mantano. He also speaks highly of Aldiko. Both have a free version to try out.
