A quick heads up for readers in NYC. This summer, The New York Public Library released a new app, called SimplyE, which gives its cardholders the ability to "browse, borrow, and read more than 300,000 e-books from the Library’s collections in just a few easy steps." If you're among the 3.4 million people the NYPL exists to serve, you can download SimplyE for iPhone/iPad or Android, log in with your NYPL card barcode and PIN, and start reading. Down the road, NYPL plans to make the app available on Kindle Fire, and also to make books available in mp3 format.
As always, you can download free books from our twin collections: 900 Free Audio Books: Download Great Books for Free and 800 Free eBooks for iPad, Kindle & Other Devices.
