Subject: [BCAB] ebooks and reading software

Good afternoon,

Just been looking at the ebooks.com site, and considering purchasing a couple of titles.

Not wanting to use a sony reader, nook reader or Ipad, the other choice is adobe digital audition.

one of The titles I want in .pdf format, is protected, or encrypted can't recall which it is, but one or the other that's for sure.

Question is, Must these books that are in protected or encrypted formats be read using adobe audition? or, can these titles be read in the traditional adobe reader? or, must I by the book, then breech copywright laws and scan it in to the old computer?

Seems to me that there are too many formats needing consideration, then of course, not all titles you may want would necessarily be available in the chosen format you've just bought a device for, so you gotta go and buy another piece of software or another device.  All i really wan to do is read a book of my choosing.  Doesn't get any more difficult than this does it? Then there's audible.  I'll say no more.

With thanks.
