Electronic (E) Books and Libraries and Music
With today’s smart phones, IPhone and Android operating systems and Tablets you can download to and read books, watch movies and listen to music. Many options are available for free stuff.
Let me introduce this to you by telling you about what I have and how I use them. I have both an IPhone, and an IPad; I also have a Nook, which is an electronic reader for Barnes and Noble book stores. I have apps for the Nook that runs on both my laptop computer and my IPad.
To read E Books on my phone and IPad I have two primary resources the Altus Public Library, which is part of the Southern Prairie Library System and Base Library at Altus Air Force Base. To use the Altus Public Library you need an account (library card number) which you can get by stopping by the Library on Hudson. To use the Altus Air Force Base Library system you must be authorized (civil service, active duty, retired or dependent) and stop by the library to get the account information.
Both Libraries use a portal called Overdrive which is a management/console program and it has apps for all popular devices and Windows operating systems. When using this to read a book it is synced between both my IPhone and IPad; by being synced if I have last read the book with my IPhone and then next time I open the same book on my IPad, it will ask me if I want to move forward to my last page read. Then when I go back to my IPhone it will ask me the same question. Even with my old eyes I am able to read without any problem on my IPhone. Both libraries also have movies and music albums that you can run on your phones and tablets.
Another component you will need to establish and account with is Adobe. A good place to learn more about the Adobe Digital system is at http://www.adobe.com/products/digital-editions/faq.html . To use the Overdrive system you will have to create an account with Adobe Digital.
Another resource for free E books is the Gutenberg Project site, http://www.gutenberg.org/
following is from their web site: “Project Gutenberg
offers over 45,000 free ebooks: choose among free epub books,
free kindle books, download them or read them online.
