Expecting to give (or receive) an eReader this holiday season? Check out what’s available at SAPL!

Black Friday is just around the corner, and it looks like eReaders will be hot holiday gifts again in 2011. The San Antonio Public Library wants to help you eReaderget the most out of your new technology, so make plans to visit one of our eReader clinics scheduled from now through January!

Besides showing you how to use an eReader, our November and December clinics can offer tips to help you figure out which eReader is best for you, or the lucky person receiving a gift from you. For a list of clinic dates, times and locations, please go to our online calendar and search for keyword “eReader clinic” or pick up a bookmark schedule at any San Antonio Public Library location. The class schedule is also available in our printed calendar of events, “Bookmarks.”

Don’t forget that you can download books for that new eReader, free on our website! (And Kindle is now compatible with library downloads.)

  1. I haven’t bought an e-reader yet. But, I am leaning toward buying a Kindle. Even though Barnes and Noble is tempting to me to buy a Nook and get $25.00 back, I think the Kindle is better.

    In this Kindle versus Nook competition, do you think one is better than the other? Do you agree that Kindle is the king of e-readers? If you don’t agree, then let me know before I spend $80.00 on a mistake. I don’t even consider the Sony brand because it is usually too pricey.

    • Good morning! Thanks for reading our blog. Our Reference Department advises that the current issue of Consumer Reports (available at the library) reviews eReaders.

      Hope you find information that can help you with your decision.

  2. Got my NOOK Color eReader delivered today UPS! Excited about the eReader class tomorrow. Thanks SAPL.

  3. I use the Nook Touch and love it. The best thing to do is play with both readers and see which one has a better interface – almost all other aspects of the readers are the same. Whichever one you get I highly recommend dowloading Calibre software (it’s free). You can use it to download and sideload books onto your device.
