Nook and Kindle both offer free software to read their books on a PC or other digital device and many libraries now have e-books available for loan and kids can get books without having to get a ride to the library. Barnes and Noble (Nook) and Amazon.com (Kindle) have many, many books that are free or very inexpensive, also, although I would suggest that parents do the shopping to make sure the selections are age appropriate.
