Question: I am basically computer illiterate and don't know the first thing about bits & bytes or Rom & Ram. (It's pitiful; I know.) Anyway, I heard about this thing called e-books, that I'm pretty interested in, but I don't know exactly how it works. Obviously I know you read it online; I got that much. But I need to download this program (that they tell me is free) so that I can read them. The thing is, I'm so paranoid of viruses, and taking up too much space on my hard drive. I also don't understand the first thing about zip files and stuff, either, so where do the e-books go once you buy them? Like, where would I go each time I want to open it up and continue reading? So basically, I guess I'm asking how EXACTLY do e-books work, is the program really free, and when I download it, do I run it or save it, and where do I save it to and how? Oh, I also heard the term PDF. What's that? Sorry to be such a pest! I just want to make sure I understand it before I do it! Thanks!
