I'm not sure what to make of the weird logic that suggests that if you want to create an electronic book you have to create it for the Kindle or the Sony e-book reader. Electronic books existed well before these specialized readers - throusands of them on Gutenberg, for example - and it is a glaring defect of these readers that they do not tap into these magnificant free libraries. As for meself, I have published three 'e-books' without coming near an e-book reader (Book 1, Book 2, Book 3), and with more to come (soon). So, want to write an electronic book? Check out your text editor. More from Wired.
