Grab yourself a Kindle!
« Reply #3 on: January 13, 2019, 06:54:37 PM »
I was sort of "forced" to go digital because low vision made reading paper books difficult. But now I am a true believer! Not only can I adjust the font size to a comfortable level, but I use text-to-speech to listen to books on my bicycle rides nearly every day. That is 45 minutes or so of "reading" that I would not get in otherwise.

For expats, digital is the only way to go because

1. Kindle books are (usually) less expensive than paper books.
2. Even less than that because there are no shipping charges.
3. Books are delivered instantly over the internet.
4. You can store approximately 5,000 average-sized books
5. Literally MILLIONS of titles available in the Kindle Store.

These days there are various Kindle devices to choose from and they are all very affordable compared to when they first came out 10 years ago.  Have a looksee.

And there are literally thousands of ebooks in torrents available.  I can recommend a program called Calibre to look after your ebooks in libraries and it's excellent at converting one format to another, eg epub to mobi

Thanks, LungBing.  Yes, Calibre is indispensable if you have a lot of ebooks.  And it's free!
