Amazon makes a great e-reader called the Kindle Fire. They also make other e-readers, but I personally own a Kindle Fire and I love it!
You can also get a variety of Books about Coins for the e-readers.
It is a great way to take all of your coin books with you where ever you go.
I love my Kindle Fire ! I highly recommend them to everyone!
It is so nice to be able to check out information or statistics on any coin I happen to see at anytime I want to without carrying a car load of books everywhere I go. Now all I have to do is turn on my Kindle Fire and choose the book I want and refresh my memory about any coin or its worth.
