Oodles of E-books

So many choices, how does a bookworm choose?







Vendors battle it out (stop at 3:45)


Which way do we go?


  • E-book readers (Kindles, Nooks, Sony, iPads)

  • Online fictional e-books (Tumblebooks, Follett, others)

  • Online research e-books (Gale, Ebsco, etc.)

  • iPad/iPhone apps

  • Free online e-book sites
