    I'm in the UK and as wondering how buying ebooks works. Is it possible to buy an ebook from amazon.com for the kindle and read it on my iPad in the UK? Can I get Ebooks from websites such as Waterstones (a UK bookshop) and then get it on the iPad, or would I have to purchase from iBooks, the Kindle app or Stanza? Or are these just apps that allow you to read books?

    You can see i am confused, i am just trying to figure out the limitations of ebooks.

    If you install Kindle app on your iPad, it will prompt you to open an account to Amazon UK and there you will be able to see what you are allowed to purchase.

    But you don't have to do that just yet. Just go through Kindle books from your computer on amazon.uk.

    I'm in Canada and amazon.ca is not very different in choices from amazon.com

    Even though you already have the Kobo app on your list, you can add Borders to the list of content suppliers. As you pointed out in another thread, Borders uses the Kobo app as their reader.
