Random post but do you know if your local library loan out eBooks? Don’t feel bad I don’t know if mine do…I think so. I have a slight excuse, I don’t have have an iPad, a Kindle or any eReader. The Pew Internet Research has released some crazy statistics. 62% of Americans are unaware that ebooks are available at their library. That is crazy considering everybody and their mama has some kind of device to read from. 53% of tablet owners don’t know if their library lends ebooks and 58% of library card owners don’t know if their local libraries loan ebooks.
Next time you are at your local library ask your librarian if they loan out ebooks. So much better than buying at full price.
Peace and luv!
