Where to buy Trek eBooks?

I've never bought an eBook, I just prefer hardcopy really. But, since Christoper's Typhon Pact entry will be eBook only, I figured when it's released, I'd like to know where to get it, and how to read it. Yes, how. What software do you need?

You could buy an Amazon Kindle copy and get the free Kindle for PC software.

So basically: you have options.

For the record, because of the strangely legal eBook price fixing by the Agency 5 (google it if you want, or, you know, don't; whatever), any Trek eBook and most others will be exactly the same price anywhere you buy it. So it doesn't really matter.

^Yeah, it all pretty much just depends on which format on program you want to use.
