but you don't have the Kindle device.
You will not be given the bum's rush, dear ones! No, Jeff Bezos and Company embraces the idea that reading e-books should be everyone's joy. Okay? Okay.
For example, you can't wait to buy The View from Here but you have no fancy e-reader. Go to the book's page, and scroll mid-way down. On the right hand side, you will see "Read Books on your computer or other mobile devices." Other mobile devices include iPhone, BlackBerry and Android. There's also a PC and a Mac option. So, you're like, "Wow. I'd like to read on my iPhone and my PC. What now?"
First! Go to Apple's App store. Purchase the Kindle for iPhone app -- it's free! Or simply click on "Get Kindle for iPhone" on the book's page, and then click on the App store icon on the next page. This will upload the Kindle platform on to your phone. Then! Return to The View from Here at its Amazon page. And press "Buy Now!" It will then be sent to your phone. Amazing, right? It really is.
Say you want to read on a big screen, like your PC or Mac. It's also easy. Select "Get Kindle for PC (or Mac)" and after agreeing to stuff and clicking 'yes' and 'next' a few times, the Kindle platform will be uploaded onto your hard drive.
Books books everywhere. Enjoy!
