e-books, books in digital form that can be read from a dedicated e-book reader
such as the Kindle, Nook, I-Pad and Sony Reader among many. Or, they can be
read from a smart phone, tablet, notebook or desktop computer. We offer a
growing collection of e-books that are added weekly. The link to the e-book
catalog can be at OverDrive e-books.
We suggest you look at Project Gutenberg which has a
large selection of e-books (around 30,000) for FREE download. These are not the
newest books, but are copyright free and availible for the public. Check the
links in the right hand column for other free e-book resources.

collection for young adults. These are particularly "cool" with typical
non-reading boys. Give them a go!
