I love digital books because I can download them to my iPhone and read them while everyone around me thinks I’m busy taking care of essential business. If it’s a really good book, I don’t have to put it down. I can sneak it under the table at dinner or hide it behind something else I’m supposed to be reading. The Harford County Public Library has made eBooks and audio books available for download through Maryland’s Digital eLibrary Consortium and they are offering instruction today on how to get these books onto your iPods, Kindles, Sony Readers, computers and other devices. You can learn how it’s done by stopping by the Digital Book Mobile anytime from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the library’s Abingdon branch. I’d recommend getting the lesson. It involves downloading specific software for your device. I’ve been trying it myself. So far all the books I’d like to read are already checked out and I’ve had to get on the waiting list. Yes, there aren’t unlimited copies even online. (Although there are some titles they have always available.) I’ll get an email when it’s my turn to download “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.” Then I’ll have two weeks to read it before it vanishes from my device.
