My System Specs

Default

Most of them will read epub, pdf, and rtf documents so you can grab the books from anywhere. Kindle also has its own format Mobi, Apple has their own as well but can't remember what it is since I don't own any Apple products.

Generally, when you purchase an ebook you have the choice of what format you want to download it. With my Kobo I buy from both Kobo (Chapters website) and Smashwords. There is a large choice of free books on both sites. Smashwords has a large number of relatively unknown or newer writers so the quality may vary. I have also bought from Amazon. Depending on your choice of book genres Gutenberg Press also has a wide variety of free books.
