    It looks like the ebook reader war has started. There’s the Nook, Kindle, Microsoft Courier, and Apple Tablet.

    Somehow all my books have been archived and I can’t get them out.
    I access a book in the archives and a sign comes up saying it will be
    shown on my home page but nothing happens.
    thank you
