I've really like the Brimstone Angels book series, it's funny how the two Tieflings sisters talk to each other and interact with the FR world.

The book themselves are hard to get brand new without shelling out alopt of cash, I want to get the complete series.

You can buy electronic books from any online bookseller. But you will have to have an electronic book reader to read them (they are known as "eReaders"). Here are some of the eReaders out there, https://buyersguide.org/e-readers/t/best?msclkid=040a60bf1d511a4e9b69040dfb8a9f2f&m=e&d=c&c=84937820614557&oid=kwd-84937625968329:loc-4089&qs=e%20readers%20compared&lp=72492&li=&nw=o&nts=1&tdid=8885974
Hope this helps.

Or use an app and read them on a smartphone or tablet. I've never bothered with a separate ereader -- why get a device that does just one thing when I can get a device that does that one thing and a lot more?

I get all of my eBooks through Kindle or Google Play, or occasionally from sites like DriveThruFiction.com or the Catalyst web store. There's also this site Bookbub that will send daily emails on discounted eBooks.

I read all of my eBooks either through the Kindle app (which is free) or through the Play Books app (also free; note that I use only Android devices for mobile stuff). Books that I buy from something other than those two sources I make sure I get in epub format so I can read them in the Play Books app.

I prefer Hardcopy of this book series, which it seems hard to find and very costly.

Please post it if you find the books in hardcopy for a reasonable price. I would like them as well.

Those prices are nuts. I'm glad I gave up on having a complete FR library.

A nicer reading experience. The screen is designed for the purpose and battery life is incomparable. No or minimal distractions either if one is prone to such things. I can see how it would be hard to justify, especially with the pricier models.

I love my ebook reader - it is much easier on the eyes than trying to read a whole novel off a smart phone. Battery life is months and months. It is waterproof for the bath.

My only issue is that some of the older Realms books can be impossible to find legit ways to buy them in the UK where I live. Although I haven't tried in a while, maybe it's easier to buy them now?

I've read some ebooks on my phone, but I usually read them on tablets. And that was what I was talking about -- I can use a tablet that does other things, or something that's essentially a stripped-down tablet that does one thing.

I liked the Brimstone Angle series. Tieflings as heroes for a change - yes, why not? Only thing I didnīt like that sometimes it got a bit too emitional like in a teenage novel. But overall these are some nice adventures.

I find it more comfortable for the eyes to read book on my Windows tablet. Itīs also handy to look up words or stuff on the FR fandom in a browser.
Another issue is room. Where should all these books be stored? And some paper has the problem to degrade over time(with too much acid used). A problem that ebooks donīt have.

I loved the Brimstone Angels series, but had to read them on Kindle. The books themselves are so expensive. But definitely one of the best FR series.
