Oprah’s new picks, Google Books, & ebook reader shopping
Posted by: Mary Burkey

Public domain titles such as Oprah’s A Tale of Two Cities & Great Expectations make for perfect do-it-yourself enhanced ebooks – as detailed in this post on combining free audiobooks from LibriVox & free ebooks – whether from OverDrive’s no-cost additions to your library download center, or from the treasure trove released by Google Books today.

And speaking of Google Books – the Adobe EPUB format used by Google is an important addition to the evaluation list for new ebook reader purchases. If you were glad to see OverDrive’s ebook reader Cheat Sheet for libraries, you’ll want to check out the new everybody (patrons included) version of the same.  Library patrons looking for devices compatible with OverDrive’s EPUB will be glad to know that Google Books will be ideal for buying items for readers such as the Nook, Kobo, & Sony Reader.
