eBooks

E-Books are becoming more and more popular.  Many different companies provide access to these digital books and it can be confusing to figure out the best one for you.  It can also be difficult for some to get E-Books to work with their chosen device.  The tab on E-Books is structured to help you the consumer decide if E-Books are right for you and how to get the best out of this technology.

All-in-All eBooks:

This guide will show you ways to find e-books to enjoy and take you through some of the basics in downloading them from your library and other sources. 

E-books enable you to read a book anywhere when a regular book would be too cumbersome or inconvenient.  Today's e-readers are less bulky and you can read normally whether you're enjoying the sunshine or in bed.  Don't let your arms get tired holding that Ken Follett book...read it on these lightweight, thin devices.  If you need large print, you can adjust the font with e-readers: no more squinting or holding the book at a distance.

If you have a smart phone or computer, you can also read books on those devices.  You will need to download special apps (such as Kindle for iPhone) on most of these.  Visit the App Store or the Android Market on your phone, search for Kindle or Overdrive, and you can start from there.

Well, that is a question only you can answer.  Here are a few of your options.
