Today has been set aside by libraries and OverDrive, “the country’s largest provider of e-books to libraries; it handles e-books from 5,000 publishers,” as the First Ever International Read an eBook Day!
If you’re new to eBooks, just stop by your library or the OverDrive website to learn how easy it is to read one. Also, to help celebrate the day, OverDrive is having several giveaways of ereaders, and books. You simply need to comment on their website and use hashtag #ebookday to be eligible.
They are also asking for reader recommendations, and offering a few of their own. You can find out more at their website, and by using the hashtag #ebookday on Twitter. Thousands of eBooks are available for free download at your local library, and on many author sites.
