this is slightly off topic but the answer could be useful to others.

Looking at the amazon kindle it looks as if i can use it to open / read 
normal pdf files such as the one for the ubuntu manual,  if this is the 
case it would be useful.

On another note, part of my Open uni studies requires me to read and 
highlight text in book, if i could get hold of electronic versions can i 
do this with kindle or other book readersl as in highlight text adnthen 
some how save the file with the highlights so i can use it to take 
notes, or perhaps there is other ways to attach notes to text.

i amk looking at several books on LInux atm,  have very little shelf 
space left and don't want to be a tree killer by printing out documentation,

i can also buy electronic books cheaper than paper, copies

any suggestions or ideas
