Reading Madness — Try It e-Style

There are all sorts of reading events in March: Read Across America Day, Read an eBook Week, the Big Library Read and more. Not to mention the sheer pleasure of reading in all months.

There are so many ways to enjoy reading. Physical books, audiobooks or magazines are great to use, but if you haven't tried them, eBooks, eAudiobooks and eMagazines can also be a great option. They are versatile — need more light? Change it. Need bigger font sizes? A touch can change this too. I enjoy all formats, each has its own strengths.

We have lots of different ways to get great eBook and eAudiobooks.

  • ODILO  - eBooks and eAudiobooks in foreign langauges
  • BookFlix  - Kids eBooks and video storybooks
  • ComicsPlus - eGraphicnovels and comic books for all ages
  • Hoopla  - eBooks,eAudiobooks and eGraphic novels
  • Zinio - eMagazines for all ages

Why so many ways?

  • Some of our resources are specialized. For example, the two Gale products primarily contain eBooks you might use for quick reference. ODILO is for eBooks in languages other than English. ABDO, Bookflix and Tumblebooks are focused on children's material. ABDO and Comics Plus are focused on graphic novels and comic books.
  • Some of our resources have exclusive content. Several of the magazines we have in Flipster are not available through Zinio, and visa-versa. OneClick Digital has exclusive authors we can't get in other resources.
  • Some of our resources have unique features. Cloud Library allows us to share eBooks with several other libraries. We can borrow their eBooks and they can borrow ours. It gives us more bang for our buck. Hoopla is a pay-per-use system, so although there are use limits, we can offer a much larger selection than we can provide making individual title purchases.

Explore the many "e" formats and resources that we have. You're bound to get into reading madness!
