Download e-books

AUBURN — Suzanne Sullivan will demonstrate the steps to download free books from the Maine Download Library to an e-reader device at noon Thursday, Jan. 5, at the Auburn Public Library, 49 Spring St. APL now has an Overdrive Advantage account, so there are more books to choose from, including some just for APL patrons.

“This is the tipping-point season for e-readers, there’s no question,” said Peter Hildick-Smith, president of the Codex Group, a book market research company.


According to Forrester, at least 10.3 million e-readers could be in circulation by the end of the year. And many of them will be bought for other people. In a recent Consumer Reports poll, 10 percent of the adults surveyed said they planned to give an e-reader as a gift this year, up from four percent in 2009.
