I would like to be able to turn the pages of a book while lying down and would like to be able to use speech recognition on my laptop to turn the pages of an electronic book. I would like to be able to have the book on the memory of the computer rather than have to be online. I wondered if I could purchase a book and download it on my computer.

Does anyone have a recommendation and know where to purchase or download books that are in something like a PDF format where you could read a novel while you are in bed?

I was trying to find out information about Sony e-books but was unable to find out about their costs and I wondered if there was other places to purchase e-books? Is there a way for libraries to loan e-books?
