Our patrons borrowed a lot of eBooks this year. Below you’ll find the top ten most read eBooks in our collection. There are a couple of surprises in there. What happened to bring The Cuckoo’s Calling, the thriller written by J.K. Rowling under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith, back to the top? It was published three years ago! And despite the fact that I’ve never even heard of it, A Murder in Time was far and away the most popular eBook of the year.
In any event, with an Eisenhower Library card and Media on Demand, our eBook lending service, you can read all these books on your computer, tablet, or other mobile device for free. Media on Demand works with computers and laptops, Kindles, Nooks, and most other eReaders. Android, Apple, or Amazon device users can download the Overdrive or Kindle apps from your device’s app store.
To get started, visit www.mediaondemand.org. Sign in by choosing Eisenhower as your library. Then, enter your library card number and PIN. Unless you changed it, your PIN is the last four digits of your phone number. Choose an available book and start reading.
