More information about the various eReaders!

I'm not really in the market for an eReader right now, I mean, I'd love to have one, but then I'd just want to buy books to put on it!   So the trend of libraries offering eBooks for free or little cost really makes buying an eReader move up my wishful thinking list. Yesterday I got an email from a staff member at my old library, asking me if I'd seen their new page about the different types of eReaders. Of course I hadn't, I mean, I miss the library, let's not rub salt in wounds, right? But I clicked through and took a look, and it seems to be a very comprehensive guide comparing things like battery life, screen size, file format and the ability to make notes.  I encourage you to check it out for yourself!

  1. This was very helpful. I am wondering if I can find a library to allow me to check out eBooks even though I do not live in the proximity though. My library will not be having eBooks anytime soon, I am sure. :)

  2. Hi Gina! This is John from the Rapid City Public Library. There are a few possible options for you. You could access ebook lending services by purchasing a card from a library that offers a ebook lending service similar to ours.

    You could also access free ebooks from or Google Books. Many classics can be found there.

    If you are also an avid blogger (or willing to pretend to be one) then NetGalley offers ebooks for review.

    Hope that helps and thanks to Lisa for posting about us!
