Nooks are in the House!

We have added 2 first generation Nook ereaders to our circulating collection. Have you been considering an ereader purchase, but would like a hands on test drive? Patrons interested in learning about ereaders and how they work may check out a Nook to explore and experiment upon–the Nooks will contain a number of pre-loaded ebooks for your perusal.  A lendable Kindle may also be added to the collection soon.  Holds may be placed on the new ereaders, just like a book.  Nook1 and Nook2 are ready to go out–search our online catalog for Nook, and place a hold, or call the library to have them check for availability for you.

Hot off the presses!  Nook1 sports the new Steve Jobs biography by Walter Isaacson, just released this month.

Also on Nook1, only available in ebook form, we have downloaded new short stories by Lee Child and Michael Connelly that give Jack Reacher and Harry Bosch fans some glimpses of the early histories of their favorite investigators.  Plus, a special release of the first Discworld novel by Terry Pratchett, including new material about the inimitable Rincewind and the travelling luggage.

Nook2 is currently loaded with the ebook bestseller, The Mill River Recluse by Darcie Chan.  This new novel has only been released in ebook form, and is not available in our main stacks.  It also holds the Adrienne Giordano suspense/romance Man Law.  Nook1 and Nook2 also contain a number of classic reads, including swashbuckling original The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas.

More material may be downloaded at any time!  We welcome your ebook recommendations.
