An Easy Way to Get Started with E-Books

A story in The New York Times in May of 2011 reported e-books surpassed print sales. E-books are here to stay. Despite difficulties with publishers, libraries continue to acquire more titles. When searching our library catalog, all versions of a book will be listed print, e-book, and audio book. There are many ways to read e-books. So many in fact, that one can be overwhelmed choosing a way to read. I have found the simplest for me, since I have not yet invested in a Kindle or Nook, is to use the Kindle app for PC or MAC and then read e-books in the browser on my pc. You do not have to have a Kindle to use the app. Here is the link to download the app: http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html?ie=UTF8&docId=1000426311  And here is the link to our e-book and audio book collections: http://www.bplonline.org/virtual/downloadables.aspx

So go ahead, take the plunge and find an e-book to enjoy.
