Libraries Kindle the Flame

 “As soon go kindle fire with snow, as seek to quench the fire of love with words.
~William Shakespeare

October is here! That means time to clean out the chimney of cobwebs and creosote. Don’t forget to clean out the mounds of ash in the fire
box from last year, too! Get ready for a new heating season. Colder days and nights mean cozying up to the fireplace or woodstove with lots of good books!

There are few excuses anymore for not having a good book to read. Even when winter blizzards bear down and prevent us from driving to the
library, anyone with a computer or an electronic reader can now browse e-book catalogs and find a fulfilling read.

Libraries are kindling the flame when it comes to getting library patrons to join in on the next generation of books. Not only are e-books being added to library catalogs, but libraries are igniting the interest of library patrons to try reading on digital devices. Libraries in New Jersey, Maryland and other states are now loaning e-readers along with e-books. You can now try before you buy!

The obstacle of not being able to borrow from hometown libraries while traveling has been removed. No matter how far away you are from your hometown library, using your library card to borrow books is now possible through on-line library software programs and e-book catalogs. The Library Funding and Technology Access Study indicates 67% of libraries now have e-pubs!

Looking for a best selling book? Bookmark this site. It has a list of top selling e-books and a list of free-books that are the most read in the new generation of publishing. http://amzn.to/mYu88G.

Surely there is a book on the list that kindles your interest! What will it be?

  1. That is the beauty of the many platforms that are available for readers in this day and age – hardcover books, paperback books, audio books, e-books! And most people seem to utilize all of them. In my opinion e-books will not negate the need for books in print, they only add one more choice that is available who love the written word.

    Thanks for your comment, Caroline.

  3. thank you for your kind comment. I had forgotten I had written that blog a long time ago – after re-reading it, I am pleased with it, too and
    over the past year e-books have gained even greater popularity and finding their place in more and more libraries.
