You Don't Need an e-Reader to Read e-Books

Okay, I'll admit it. I dragged my heels when it came to buying an e-reader. What can I say? I love books. Real books. The ones made of paper. The ones that have a spine that cracks when you open them. (I can hear the collective gasp. "You cracked the spine? That's sacrilegious!" But that's a whole other blog post.)

Once I began selling my romance novels as e-books, I felt I had to break down and buy an e-reader. I settled on a Kindle, but I have friends who own Nook and Kobo e-readers who are very happy with their choice. If you're in the market for an e-reader, you can find some product reviews here at CNET and here at PCWorld. I really enjoy my kindle (this, too, is whole other blog post), and I rarely leave the house without it. But…

Did you know… you don't have to buy an e-reader to enjoy reading e-books? If you own a computer or a laptop (PC or Mac), a smart phone, or a tablet, then you can download a free reading app. Yes, I said FREE. I'm always surprised by the many readers who are unaware of this fact.

Choose which e-reader app you'd like, then click the link and download the app. It's as simple as that!
