If you don't have a Kindle (very expensive.. although recently they came out with a less expensive version) go to Amazon's Kindle page. There you can download their "Kindle for PC" for free. No cost at all. It installs on your pc, laptop, and/or netbook in seconds. There are downloads available for other apps as well. Unfortunately Kindle keeps a corner on the market by only allowing their own books on it, sigh... but the other ereader companies also have free ereaders for pc's and you can read a number of files on them. Nook is Barnes & Noble's ereader. They also have the free ereader for pc and they use universal ereader files so you can put other downloads on it and you're not limited to Barnes & Noble content. Other ereaders use universal files as well. Some others to research if you're planning to buy one, Kobo, Borders, Sony Ereader, Nook and Jetbook.
Enjoy, everyone, and thank you, Lea and Litsa for putting your time and effort into this for all of us.
From Lea Schizas:
Autism Epidemic, Shaking the system is an inspirational book with personal stories and helpful information, not only for families affected by autism but as an autism awareness platform to sensitize the general public and offer them an insight as to what autism is and its impact on families.
