Concerning versions of ebook : XPS & PDF
Guess I gotta show my ignorance right off the bat.
Can someone explain in simple terms what XPS version is? I kinda know what PDF is. I have some PDF items already & have a bit of a time reading them, probably due to the fact that I've never learned how to use it properly.
Is XPS just plain,easy to read text?
oops,forgot to give more info,
Windows 7, I guess it's 64 bit
this is an eMachine

An XPS document is a Microsoft document format that you can use to archive content in a standardized format or publish content in an easily viewable form. You can also use this format to ensure that no one is able to edit your original work.
Both PDF or XPS are equally easy to read imo.

Again, my bad for not explaining why I asked. I was going to download your free ebook(s) but didn't know which version to choose. Still not sure, guess I need to do more reading about XPS, hopefully find a screen shot somewhere that shows me what something looks like in it compared to PDF.

There is little to no difference. Probably nothing in visual quality between the two. Just different formats. You'll get the same book that looks the same, just opens in a different reader - that's about it. I usually go for PDF, myself, just out of habit and the readers I have for it are easy and fluid when moving to different pages (I can move it to a tablet and it reads like a standard e-book).

Yes, you could download either format, its not much different. In any case they are vers small downloads, so you could download bot and see which one you prefer.
