Read an eBook Week
March 04, 2013
Join us from March 3rd through 9th as we celebrate Read an eBook Week (yes, there is and actual event for that!). Visit OverDrive to browse through our available eBook titles. If you don't own a reader, the Smithville Branch has several Sony eReaders available for checkout, and our staff is always willing to help get you started.
What's the advantage of an eBook anyway? I got an iPad last year and decided to see what I thought of the eBook format. I have to admit, I was a little hesitant about trying it because I love books so much. Turns out, I really like it! Because of the backlight on the screen, I can read in low light. It's also very portable. I can load several books on my device and have them available when I am on a trip without having to haul the heavy books around. I'm able to adjust the font if I need to and can also highlight and bookmark sections that I want to remember. It's great!
Give it a try! You might like it.
