As a reader of Digital Pubbing, you likely already well know how to access ebooks and audiobooks. But not all book lovers are as attuned to finding their next digital read, and figuring this out can be daunting.
Our newly launched #BooksForwardHelpline walks readers step-by-step through the downloading process and options for various e-reading devices.
Many readers are turning to digital books during this time of social distancing, bookstore closings and Amazon suspending deliveries of non-essentials. And now is an especially important time to read digitally in ways that continue to support local libraries and independent bookstores—you may be able to pick up a physical book curbside at your local bookstore, or you can use Kobo to download a book that still benefits your favorite indie and Libby for library downloads.
The Books Forward helpline teaches physical book lovers the ABCs of downloading books through popular apps that can be used by phone, iPad, computer or other e-readers. Readers can call the free helpline at (615) 212-8549 between 9 a.m and 5 p.m. CT, or find a written guide, recommended reading lists and more resources at booksforward.com/helpline.
Many of us may take for granted our digital savviness, but do you have a loved one who may need help navigating the world of ebooks and audiobooks?
