Kindle II @ the Library

Have you wondered what the new e-book readers were all about? What they looked like, how easy it was to read the screen and other questions about them. Sony and Amazon have recently released new e-book readers and there are more companies coming out with them soon. The Friends of the Library purchased a Kindle II from Amazon for the library. This e-book reader is much easier to read than the old e-book readers we had six or seven years ago. The screen is easy on the eyes and it is light to hold. (Much lighter than a hardcover book.) But you can test all that for yourself. Before we start allowing it to be checked out and leave the building, we are keeping it available here in the library. Stop in and check it out in the building for an hour and then later this year we will have it ready to circulate. See what e-book readers are all about. Are they something you might like to own or borrow from us?
