If you’re one of the millions who received a Nook or Kindle for Christmas, you’re probably looking for books to load on it. Because the world of e-books is still new, it can take some digging to find your favorite titles in your e-reader’s format. It can also be frustrating that some e-books cost just as much as their physical copies.
I suspect that in a few years, with the help of the free market, e-books will evolve and become more widely available, much more affordable, and more universally adapted to all e-readers. Until then, here are some suggestions for the best horse books available in e-book format and how to find free horse e-books.
