As DaleDe already said, more info would be helpful!
An ebook is an electronic book (versus the pbook => paper book). An ereader, or ebook reader is the device with which you can read ebooks.
A Kindle is one of many ebook readers. And only Kindles take the Kindle formats. Unless you got a tablet with either Ios or Android. Then you can install the Kindle App, which will allow you to read books from amazon as well.
