E-Reading and You

How well are you catching up with e-reading? As we know, e-reading is popular globally. What about locally?

Are we well informed about e-books?

I have a few questions for you to ponder:

1. Are you willing to buy ebooks? Yes / No

2. Are you willing to spend a fortune on ebooks? Yes / No

3. Do you read? Yes / No

4. Do you read because you enjoy reading or because you have to read (maybe to pass an exam, etc.)

State your reason: _________________________________

Finally, the big question is:

5. E-books or No e-books?

*****

You might love to read but you are not sure where you can get e-books. Well, the good news is you can get free e-books although the choices is limited. You might consider buying e-books. There are cheap e-books available, although you will have to look around.

If you like classic books, Project Gutenberg is the best place to start looking.

Bartleby allows you to search for materials you need for reference.

If you know the title of the book you are searching for, try Google Books.

Young People’s Zone is offering children classic stories.

Researching Greek, Roman, Arabic and Renaissance? Try Perseus Digital Library.

The Online Books Page offers a variety of free online readable materials.

Ok, so these sites aren’t exactly offering the latest books in the market. Bear in mind, you need to buy the latest books such as Harry Potter and Twilight. You won’t find free Harry Potter e-books or free Twilight e-books unless if you get it through P2P sites (which is illegal).

To buy e-books, you can check out Amazon.

If you are too lazy, you can try out Audio books from Audible.

Time to switch to e-reading.

Time for a new hobby if you are not interested in reading.

*I do enjoy coffee, and if I have it my way, I might have more than one cup of coffee a day, so feel free to fund my coffee addiction 🙂
