Help with E-readers

 
 
A few weeks ago on the WIKY Morning Show, we talked about some of the hottest gifts this Christmas and ebooks really look like they're set for a big year but lots of question linger about what's best for them.  Amy Mangold of the Evansville-Vanderburgh Public Library visited the show yesterday with news of an exciting event.  Tonight, December 8, 6:30 at the Central Library, EVPL will conduct a "Meet the E-readers" party.  There will be a number of available devices to try out and compare.  Plus, it's free!

E-book Me

 
One of the hottest gift items for grown-ups again this Christmas will be an e-reader. If you’re not familiar with these devices, it’s basically an electronic book. You can download complete books from a variety of sources including the library. There are thousands of titles for free and thousands of others for pocket change. It sounds like a great idea and I might even use one if it were a gift. But, I’m just an old book kind of guy and not sure I could get used to reading on one of these contraptions. I like the feel o
