I know I’ve mentioned before that I own a Kindle, which I purchased with the money I saved by using coupons.
I absolutely love my electronic reader. It lets me carry multiple books when I travel, so I don’t have to worry about running out of something to read while on a plane or during an airport layover.
So far I have well over 100 books and more than 20 games on my Kindle and I’ve paid for maybe a dozen of them. The rest were free.
This week, I’ll share some of the ways in which you, too, can enjoy books for free on an e-reader like a Kindle or Nook.
The first way is by borrowing e-books from a library. If you’re not sure how to do that, the Erie County Public Library is ready to help.
Blasco Library, 160 E. Front St., will host a free e-book reader demo on Wednesday. The event includes two sessions, according to the library website.
Part one, from 10:30-11 a.m., is an overview of e-readers and includes a demonstration of how to download free e-books from the library.
Part two, from 11 a.m. to noon, is hands-on technical assistance on your own device. Make sure to take your e-reader and any hardware like the cable, along with your user name and password.
