well it took a few months but my kids are sold.  They both now want an e-reader.  My question is are they all easy to transfer books from a laptop to the kindle or other reader.  They are not showing an interest in the kindle fire, That is what they are reading on now.

We got my son a Kindle, for his bday.  It is the one with the free 3G.  Get this one.  You will so not be sorry.  I can be on the way to the airport to pick up my dh and my son can check flight times and gates on the kindle on the way.  For free!

Best Kindle there is imo.  I love Kindle.  I have the ipad, and I love that it is backlit.  But for the free 3 G I would get my kids the Kindle.  When my son is at school he can look up words and get information for projects in a couple of minutes.  His Kindle is faster than his his other friends who have the Kindle Fire.  

I just was so against ereaders, but now that we have them, I really do like them.  I still go to Barnes and Noble, I love to be in a book store, I just don't buy as many books there as I use too.

My wife and I have Kindles and we are both tied to the same Amazon account, so it's easy for us to share books.  If one of us purchases an e-book, we can just go to the "Manage my Kindle" page on Amazon and send a copy to the other one's Kindle.

Other than that, I don't know how to transfer e-books from one device to another.  Sorry.

Love my Kindle since you can enlarge the text to suit your eyes!

Is the Kindle fairly easy to carry in a large purse or a backpack? My iPad 1 is a bit of a clunker.

yes the kindle is smaller and easier to cary even when it is in a nice holder.

@Retired_Engineer:

There's a sweet little free app called "Calibre" that you can get at calibre-ebook.com that's great for transferring e-books between devices.  You can also use it to change formats if your going between different flavors of e-readers.
