As I'm 36,000 feet in the air working on writing my column, I thought that now would be a good time to write about the ways the library can travel with people on their summer vacations. Having eBooks and eAudio available to me 24/7 is so useful when I find that I am in need of something to read or listen to.
The great thing about traveling with the library on your phone or tablet is that wifi and a data connection are not necessary to read books or to listen to audiobooks that are already downloaded to your device. It also means that I don’t have to tote around the weight of lots of books; I'm one of those readers who has five or six books checked out at one time just in case I finish a book early or am not in the mood to read a book I started.
Did you get a shiny new device over the holidays—or have you had one for a while and not explored many of its possibilities? Are you a reader—or a listener? Use your gadget to bring books to you, anytime and nearly anywhere. After you set up your device, it’s very easy to browse our virtual shelves and make your selections. There are never any late fees because books return themselves. Automatically. Another very cool thing about eBooks—you can change the print size to personalize your reading experience.
June is National Audio Book Month! So, to celebrate, throw some headphones into your beach bag. A great story is the perfect soundtrack to any summer adventure.
Because I love audiobooks and can’t resist sharing my favorites, I’ve gathered a list of great audiobooks for summer. The list includes fantasy and science fiction, memoir and family drama—all with compelling plots and page-turning appeal to keep you listening through the dog days to come.
