Online information about e-readers and how to use them

Here is an eclectic mix of links to websites for those who want to know more about how to use their ereaders. In our efforts to become more than a “click-and-buy” user of an ereader, we have found these sites useful.

We intend to alert you to more sites but to get started this is a good mix of basic how-to guidance as well as the more historical and contextual information for those who want to know how this new device fits into our current book reading culture.
