>>> Why would not, for example, a Dummies book, be not a good application for an e-book? Why is it that just novels, etc. are suitable for e-books?
I've bought a few technical books for my Kindle. The biggest drawback
is trying to see a screenshot when they show the entire screen instead
of a section of the screen, and it's too small to see the details, and
it can't be enlarged.
Other than that, technical books are a great application for the
Kindle, for multiple reasons:
-they tend to be large and eat up a lot of physical space.
-they tend to be read once and the occasionally referred to, so who
wants to take up all that space?
-easy to search
-can take notes and highlight and see/edit the notes file separately
