Hi Felix

I followed this > 
to look at android on a PC some months ago.  Works fine though an older 
version of Android.  Whilst I haven't tried it, it should be possible to 
add the Free Kindle App for Android to this and use it to download and 
read E-books. I suggest though your budget Tablet would do this better. 
  My $300 Telstra T Touch Pad works extremely well as an E-book reader 
and as an Audio Book player using the Audible app

Hope this helps
