For one book, I kid you not, I got exactly one page of the first chapter of the book. The rest was all that useless filler stuff. How are you going to decide if you want to buy an ebook if they don't give you enough of the book to make a decision?

And fyi, you don't have to have one of those devices to get ebooks. Both Kindle and NOOK have apps that you can download so you can read their books on your pc.
If you have an Android phone or an iPhone, you can also download both apps. With the features of the smart-phones, screens are small but on most of them you can maneuver the screen quite easily to see everything. I also love my Kindle for everything except Manga.
