Also is the Kindle tied to Amazon, or can you download from The Book Depository via other software, I use Adobe Digital either PDF or just Digital Editions.
I've suggested she gets them to buy a Sony instead, but think it's a bit outside their price limit.
Any help please. My friend isn't a techie so wouldn't be able to amend the Kindle.
I have seen the responses regarding free books, but don't think she's actually looking for those. Thanks
I have bought one(I am in Lyon), but never tried to download any books from the .uk web. (I think the account registers on the web of .uk and the .com web are different.)
You can buy the Kindle "as a gift", then it won't be tied to any compte de Amazon.
Kindle3 works well with pdf files and I can even read papers of double columns.
