^^ I still use WordPerfect. It can export to Word format. If necessary.
As for e-books, I must say that I find them wonderful. While I am a great book lover and nostalgic by nature and love the look and feel and smell of books and love having them piled up all around me, e-books have allowed to collect-- at little or no cost-- the works of writers that I've heard about all my life and was never able to find. Guys like Lord Dunsany, Seabury Quinn, Clark Ashton Smith, Neil R Jones et cetera. Project Gutenberg now includes books in EPUB format that are generally very compatible with the Nook or Kindle, so there is a great supply of heretofore scarce literature available.
