Here’s a neat resource for all you e-book lovers. Jellybooks calls itself a “discovery service” — they don’t sell e-books, but they help readers discover e-books they’d like to read.
Not only can you discover new books you’re interested in, but you can also download 10% of the book to determine if you really like it; Jellybeans saves all your samples for you and multiple downloads are allowed. If you want a book, Jellybooks gives you links to purchase the books at your choice of stores.
There are some other neat features, too – a creative way to get books at a 50% discount (see this page), and ways to share your discoveries with friends.
And don’t forget: you can download e-books and audiobooks from the library for free! Just ask us how, or visit www.anytime.lib.wa.us.
