getting your books from one specific supplier ( Amazon I believe in this case ), or are there ones you can buy books from wherever you want on your
pc, then load them onto the eReader of your choice?

I use the Kindle when I go on holiday or am going to be waiting for an appointment and it works very well. I like being able to download a book the
second I decide to get it without having to leave the house or wait for an online order.
If only all my orders were carried out so fast...
Prefer books, myself.
The batteries never go flat, for one.

Call me a Luddite, but electronic things have a tendency to, well, not work, properly.
Books tend to work, most of the time.
An E-Book is likely to suffer a terminal problem if you do that Giron, at least a real book can still be readable!
It's always best to put you e book in a plastic bag, making sure it's completely watertight, before dropping it in the bath water.
The same principle applies if you are reading a gentleman's magazine in the bath.
