MCPL No Longer Purchasing eBooks from HarperCollins
At this time Mid-Continent Public Library has decided to stop purchasing HarperCollins eBooks due to their new eBook lending model. This will not affect the purchasing of other formats of HarperCollins materials, such as print and audiobooks. MCPL will continue to purchase eBooks from all other publishers available through Overdrive.
I like doing crossword puzzles. I’m not great at it. I’ve tried some of the New York Times Puzzles and have been puzzled by words in the descriptions that I have never heard, but still I like working various ones. If anybody were to tell me that I am wasting my time, there are many research papers on Alzheimer’s and memory loss that recommend puzzles as a way to keep one’s brain sharp and active.
I just received an eReader as a gift from my husband. I was reluctant to test out this new way of reading books because I was convinced I would miss the tactile feel of a book in my hot little hands. I couldn’t have been more wrong! ePublishing is the hottest trend around and romance is the leading genre, outselling more than any other combined.
I have been reading about and hearing a lot about how wonderful e-books are and how you will always have a good book wherever you go. Well I’m not anti-technology or someone who feels progress is all bad, but for me nothing will ever replace the good old book.
Over the weekend, my little sister Emily and I made a trip to our Grandmother’s house. Our Grandma is what we like to call a "book hoarder" – bookshelves all over her home with too many overflow books to know what to do with. These books are NEVER for sale, donation, or trash … after all, she may read them again (although, usually not).
