Here is some e-Book background information from Amazon
An e-book, or electronic book, is a digital book that you
can read on a computer screen. Some e-books can also be read
on an electronic portable device such as a Palm, PocketPC
or other handheld computer.
To read an e-book, you must have an e-book reader. A reader
is the free software that must be installed on the computer
or device to which you download your e-book in order to read
it. You can purchase an e-book from Amazon.com at any time,
but you must have a reader installed on your computer prior
to downloading the e-book.
You can download Microsoft Reader or Adobe Acrobat e-Book
Reader for free at Amazon.com. Once you have placed your order,
you will receive an e-mail message containing a link to follow.
This link will take you to a page where you can download the
e-book that you've purchased to your installed reader.
If you misplace the e-mail containing this link, don't worry
— you can get to the download page by visiting the relevant
order summary. To do that, click the "Your Account"
link in the top right corner of any page of their site.
