Still on the fence about trying eBooks?

I know the conversation you are having in your head right now. . .

'I don't like reading eBooks. I'm on a computer all day, I don't want to stare at a screen anymore.  I love the feel of the book and turning the actual pages.  The technology is just too hard.  Reading on a device isn't really reading.  EBooks and all of this technology is ruining our society.  I like to see my progress when I'm reading.  I want to be able to flip through the pages.  I want to be able to share my books.  I love the smell of books. . .'

These are all legit arguments, however, let me counter your arguments with these ideas. . . .

  • You can literally have access to every book you own in your pocket.
  • There's a handy dictionary at your fingertips.
  • On vacation and have a bunch of books to read?  Great!  Put them all on your device in one sleek slim little package, more room for souvenirs.
  • Instant gratification!
  • Don't worry, no one will know you are reading that steamy romance. . . wink wink.
  • Budding novelists and indie publishers publish in electronic format first in most cases.
  • No wait times, no overdue books.
  • Increase your font size, change the margins, change the font, take notes, highlight things you want to remember.
  • You will never lose a bookmark again.
  • Save a tree

So with all those ideas in mind. . . why not give it a try?  If you are ready, we are willing and able to show you how!  Make an appointment with an eBook Specialist by contacting Shannon Kazmierczak 708.422.4990 x515 or skazmierczak@olpl.org
