I want to buy an e-book



The Amazon page says it will deliver to your Kindle or other device.

Does that mean that the file goes to a single place (say, my desktop computer), and then resides there without possibility of transfer?

I now have use of an iPad, and I have a desktop computer. Do I need to pick one or the other?

The book was on sale today for 99 cents, so I clicked it--not too big a loss if I've made a mistake.

The Amazon page thanked me, and says the book will be auto-directed wirelessly to Kindle Cloud Reader.

There is a button to "start reading now in Kindle Cloud Reader" on my browser page, on this desktop. But, I hope I can read it on the iPad somehow.

I have a Kindle and an iPad. I moved all my books from the Kindle to the iPad as it is better for me and finally I get to read in colour with pictures etc. As long as you download the Kindle reader app then nominate the iPad it makes it clear to Amazon that you are the same person and it is no problem.
