What is an e-book (electronic book)?  What is the Kindle?

A small, light, and thin electronic device that lets you read books, magazines, newspapers, or articles using an electronic ink (e-ink) display technology that looks just like paper, making it much easier on the eye than reading it on a regular computer or laptop screen. If you tired of reading, Kindle can literally read it to you out-loud using its built-in text-to-speech synthesizer. Truely an amazing device.

The video below shows you some of the features in action. The video will look better when you start playing it:
