Used to be able to use one, did they fix the issue in their ebook reader program where the links in the ebook didn't work? Otherwise it was a nice two page e reader program.

I just updated mine a couple of days ago and the change is dramatic.... Way less crashes, faster operation and all the little annoying lags seem to have disappeared. Really recommend this update
