The Kansas City Star had an interesting article in last Friday's issue on eBooks. It touches on a lot of the thorny issues libraries face when trying to acquire titles, especially in regard to licensing and financial restrictions.
I received a NOOK Color (with Wi-Fi) as a gift for my birthday. I really like it and have enjoyed using it to read eBooks that I’ve downloaded. Barnes & Noble (B&N) bookstore sells this device as well as several other Nook devices, which are geared toward individual's reading and Internet preferences. They range in price from $99 - $199. I know that many people are considering purchasing some type of eReader, so I wanted to let you know about some things I’ve discovered about my NOOK Color:
Teen Read Week ~ eReader Giveaway @ the Liberty Branch!
Teen Read Week is all about celebrating teens in the Library. This year’s theme is "It Came from the Library!" TRW seeks to show teens that it is fun to read in all its forms. This year, the Liberty Branch is doing something a little different. Instead of the usual book giveaway, we are embracing all things electronic and offering a Kindle Simple Touch as a prize.
It’s that time of year when new eBook readers seem to come out of the woodwork. Many people still don’t know that you can borrow eBook titles in addition to print materials. Best of all, they’re FREE! If you’ve been reading my blogs, you know how much I love a freebie.
