    Actually, you can get books anywhere, in any format, and use Calibre e-book manager (calibre-ebook.com/) to convert them to Kindle format (or any other format you may need) and store them in your library. I find that very useful as I have a lot of older PDF and DOC format books from the early days of e-publishing. It's nice to get them all in one library where I have easy access to them.

      Yea, calibre doesn't work with a lot of the newer stuff though. I know both Amazon and Barnes and Nobel use DRM (Digital Rights Management) encoding on their stuff so it can only be read by their software. I'm sure Apple does the same.

          Dan, I really miss Border's too. I first discovered them in Rockville when I was starting to build up my library. Then when they built the store in Towson, I was in Heaven. I found books there that I couldn't find in the local libraries. It's sad that B&N won that little corporate battle.

            They're not completely gone, just downsized big time. From what I understand though B&N aren't doing so well either, they just can't compete with Amazon.

              Keep the faith Brother TV!

              Borders downsized in my area and while there is a B&N in the area, the neares Borders is 30 mins from me.

                I don't like the B & N by me. I've been there like 5 times trying to get the new Robert Jordan and the only copies they had were beat to all heck and back. It is nice finding some of their cheap "Bargain Books". I've gotten a few of King's firsts that way.

                  I don't like B&N that much simply because they don't have a horror section, the authors are mixed in with other fiction authors and a lot of the smaller authors are not available. Luckily I have 3 Half Price books close to me, and at least 1 of the Borders by me is still open. At least until Borders closes down completely that is

                    I preferred Borders for the same reason. I could always find a selection of Laymon, Ketchum and Little paperbacks there.

                      All of our Borders have now closed so it looks like all my purchases will by on line.

                        another thing I like about the kindle - it is work-friendly. If you're sitting at your desk reading a book, especially fiction, with a flashy cover, people KNOW you're slacking off. However, if you're reading as Kindle, it almost looks as if you're doing somethign serious
                        It ain't braggin' if you can do it. . .

                          Even better, download the Kindle app to your work pc. Then it looks as if you're just reading work-related documents
