If you use our Overdrive-powered service for ebooks, Southwest Virginia Public Libraries, you should find new books there every month. And if you are just getting started with that service, here's my recommendation. Browse the books that are currently available; that way you don't go through the whole exercise of trying to learn how to check out and download a book, just to find out it isn't currently available.

If you are asking what's an ebook, here's the answer. An ebook is a book that you read on a screen--it's still print and it looks like it's on a page, but you view it on the screen of a digital device. The digital device can be an ereader (Kindle or Nook, for example), a tablet computer (an iPad or other computer that looks like it's just a small, flat screen), or even a smart phone. I'm not kidding, some folks have reported reading books on their phone. And if you think about it, the average phone isn't that much smaller than a paperback book.
How we read has evolved, from handwritten or printed by candle light, to printed pages under electric lights, to print on an 'electrified' page. But we still read. And we are still enriched by the experience.
