If you’re reading this, you’re probably familiar with e-books.  I wasn’t until my own books were published.  They come in both trade paperback and in various formats of e-books.

E-books are great if you want to try a new author and don’t want to spend the money for a paper book.  Go to the website of your choice, pay your money (mine are $6) and download the e-book.  You can read on your computer, PDA, some phones, or special e-book readers.

Before you buy an e-book, though, you might want to go to Project Gutenberg and download some free e-books just to give them a try.  Project Gutenberg takes books whose copyrights have expired and makes them available for free.  I loved Anne of Green Gables, but hadn’t read the rest of the series.  Project Gutenberg has them all.  All I had to do was click and save and I have the whole text of the second book, Anne of Avonlea, to read when I feel like it.  I’ll go back for the rest as I have time.  Of course, modern authors aren’t included because of copyright laws, but there are plenty of other books there to explore.

Have fun!
