Last year for Christmas I got myself a Kindle. This year I got an iPad. I got them mainly to see how well my books would appear on them. And, in the process of doing that, I learned a lot about publishing to those platforms.
They each have strengths and weaknesses. More accurately defined as what I like and what I don't like.
It would take a large article to enumerate them all. So, this conversation is meant to address questions and issues about the two. I don't know all the answers, but I have found informed discussion groups where almost anything related to e-books can be found.
If you have comments or questions, fire away.
