I have access to kindle on my iPad
Good if charts are involved as the kindle format can be too small to read
|jiwawa||Thanks Kev. Maybe I'll try that and the software on my Samsung tablet, see how that goes.|
Morning Jean, if you look on eBay, you can get matte screen covers, I use them on all my devices, makes using them much better, you lose a small amount of light, but next to no reflections.
I just bought these https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/3X-Premiu...:rk:5:razz:f:0
UK library books on electronic device?
I thought it best to rephrase the question. I'm beginning to think from what I can find (which isn't much) that I would simply need an app or a website, so a tablet would do.
However, I suspect most tablets wouldn't give a very comfortable read - no anti-glare, or back-(front-?)light.
So I'm still looking for recommendations.
Iím more interested in an easy life
I pick up my kindle , download books , wherever I am
Sometimes only for the 15 mins or so I need
Peruse the recipes , check out the life style
Settle with a travel book, not so well written
But Iíve been there and it evokes memories
And Iím tired and donít want war and peace
Or sometimes I drift away with my dragons
At others times I read academic books
Thatís the joy
At that moment of time
You soar with dragons, learn, pick up a promising reciepe or relive a journey
|jiwawa||Re paying extra for a 3g model - you can just use your smartphone as a WiFi hotspot for the kindle. If you have a smartphone, and your provider allows tethering.|

Bought ours in 2011.
Kindle 3G Wireless Reading Device, Free 3G + Wi-Fi, 3G Works Globally, Graphite, 6" Display with New E Ink Pearl Technology.
We find it really useful particularly when travelling around France in areas where the wifi is not good. It is very useful for downloading a newspaper using 3G and we would not be without it. It is the old model with a keyboard and no fancy backlighting but can be read outside in sunlight. We will be very upset to lose it when it expires as it must at some time. Will have to get one of the later models which will be some consolation as the one we bought then was £158, so some things are much cheaper nowadays.

I think the 3G versions were a very good idea the odd few years ago when internet access was difficult to find, but as you say WIFI is plentiful and often free.
For me the basic paperwhite version is adequate.
