Downloadable eBooks and Audiobooks—Not Just for Fiction
The Arts, Literature, and Sports Department (ALS) has been acquiring downloadable eBooks and audiobooks for several months now on a variety of subjects to appeal to the varied interests of our readers. Fascinated by the lives of the rich and/or famous? Try a biography of Ice-T or Clint Eastwood. Need a mood pick-me-up? Try Adam Corolla's In Fifty Years We'll All Be Chicks, Maggie Rowe's Dirty Laundry, or Dave Barry's I'll Mature When I'm Dead. For the sports enthusiasts we have Gene Chizik's All In. If you're a music aficionado, you can download Life by Keith Richards.
If you have not already tried an eBook or audiobook from the ALS Department, spring break is rapidly approaching, and summer will soon be here. Vacation would be a great time to load up the Nook, Kindle, MP3, or smartphone and give downloadables a try. We think you'll be glad you did.
