I hope this is the correct forum for this. I am not too tech saavy and I don't own a kindle, nook or any ereader. Can ebooks be read on a home computer?

Yes. Go to Amazon, they have a reader for computers for the Kindle books. If you have a smartphone, you can usually read on those too.

Also, the other ebook places either have programs, or you can read a pdf of some sort.

It's the kindle app that you can download for free and then read any kindle book on your pc. Sorry, I don't know about Nook.

You can download Kindle app for anything and Nook app for anything. I have a nook but I also have a nook app for my pc, just because I wanted it haha.

longtimewife, where did you find the book? Different e-readers have different book formats, so you might need a specific program (like the kindle reader or the nook reader, etc.) for your computer.
