All you need is a COMPUTER to read an EBOOK

Here's how it's done if you want to read an ebook available on Amazon.com.

1. Go to Amazon.com
2. Put the author's name into the Search: Laurie Elmquist
3. Click on the book you'd like to purchase: My Mother's Dress.
4. On this page, you'll find details about the book such as a product description and editorial reviews. It's a good idea to read these so you know what you are buying. My Mother's Dress is a single essay (5000 words).
5. At the right of the screen are three options. (You will choose the third!!) The first is Buy it Now. The second one (scroll down) is Sample a Selection. The third option is: Read books on your computer or other mobile devices. (This is the one you want to click on to get the FREE app.)
6. You will see a list of options:



  • GET KINDLE FOR PC




  • GET KINDLE FOR IPHONE




  • GET KINDLE FOR BLACKBERRY




  • GET KINDLE FOR IPAD




  • GET KINDLE FOR ANDROID




If you want to read ebooks on your computer, it's the first one.




There's lots of reasons why you might want to sample the experience of an ebook without the expense of buying a Reader. This blog tells you how you can be up and reading for as little as the price of a book -- 1.99 for My Mother's Dress (smile!!)






I hope this blog entry is helpful.

  1. Laurie,
    I should have guessed that I could have a virtual Kindle on my Mac. Thanks for the hint. Now I am fully equipped and really enjoyed "My Mother's Dress" -- a great picture of a family adjusting to a new beginning.

  2. That was so easy! Thanks for the how-to. I'm going to like this even if my credit card won't. I can't wait to read "My Father's Parrot" on my lunch break tomorrow.
