It is a device that you can download books onto, an ereader. There are other devices like it, the most advanced and famous being an ipad, as it has other apps that you can download onto it (ipads are basically iphones on steroids). Look up the different ones on the internet, and there are sites that should be able to tell you the pros and cons of each. I have an over 300 book collection of honor charge books (paperbacks that don't have a due date at the library) so I'm hoping to get an ipad eventually to cut down on my book clutter. Hope this helps!
