Post Newbie to the ereader world!

Hi everyone

My name is Cat and I am a newbie to the art and age of digital book reading. I have been researching ebook readers for ages, and am so confused by it all!

I am an avid reader of books, and get them from my local library, and only pay £0.50 to reserve a latest book. I want to get into the ereader era and thought I wanted the new kindle that is coming out in the UK later this month. But, I think it doesn't support drm and the library only do these publications.

I am looking to join in the chats etc. on the forums, and will welcome any advice from you guys to help me make a decision on which ebook device to buy.

Regards

Cat

Apolgies GeoffC

I didn't put my site on to annoy you, I just was updating my profile and it asked for a website (I am a newbie as stated). I am not on here to promote my business as it does very well without it. I am on here to hopefully contribute to the forums and its members and gain some insight into ereaders for me to be able to make the right purchase.

Let me know how to edit it and I will remove it.
