The Free Library of Philadelphia. My local library is great in just about every way, except for their choices of e-books. The selection is pretty dismal. So, I decided that the $15 fee for an out of state library card from The Free Library would be worth it. Before I sent off for my card, I searched through their catalog and found that there were several books from my wish list available. When I got my card, I found that most books have wait lists, but that's okay. Some books I was able to get within a few days, and others are within a few weeks. I'm not in any hurry!
The Free Library offers PDF and EPUB books, which I download through Adobe Digital Editions, but you can also use Overdrive. I haven't found every book I've looked for, but the same could be said about my local library. Here are some of the books that I've read or currently have on my hold or wish lists:
That's just a small portion of the books I have on my lists! If you have a e-reader, I highly recommend supporting the Free Library of Philadelphia, especially to read older titles. My mom got her Free Library card this week and my aunt has said she was going to send away for one as well. It's really win-win. You're helping to support a library and you get great books for your e-reader!
