As long as you've already downloaded the ebook from your Archives onto the laptop, sure.

Unless you're trying to read from the Cloud, yes.

I don't know if the apps can read from the Cloud, or if that's something limited to the Fires.

AFAIK, Fires read from the cloud using the Cloud Reader, which, on a PC, is via your internet browser. Effectively an app on a remote webserver, rather than on your own machine.

Reading at the beach is going to be difficult, on a laptop or iPad. The screens are pretty much impossible to see in the sunshine.
