If you’ve visited Amazon.com recently, you’ve probably noticed advertisements for its new ‘e-reader’, the Kindle. An e-reader is a physical device that displays e-books and other information on its screen for your enjoyment. Kindle ‘e-books’ are often cheaper than their physical equivalents, and are usually ‘delivered’ in under 60 seconds. The only problem is that the Kindle costs upwards of $250! For those on a tighter budget, Amazon offers some solutions so you can start reading those books.

If you’ve got Windows XP Service Pack 2 or later, you can get Kindle for PC, a piece of software which allows you to read Kindle books on your computer. Newspapers and magazines, many of which can currently be read on the physical Kindle, cannot be read on Kindle for PC. To get started with Kindle for PC, click here [1]. iTunes should open automatically (your browser might require your permission to allow iTunes to open), but if it doesn’t, click View in iTunes down on the bottom left-hand corner of your screen.
