eBooks in the news


The Guardian (a UK daily newspaper) compiles articles from its pages and those of its associated publications relating to eBooks onto a specific page on its website. It’s even possible to set up a RSS feed of the webpage if you are keen to keep track.

A recent interesting article titled “A more affordable way to get kids e-reading” talks about making e-readers more accessible as a way of improving children’s literacy. It seems that reading on an e-reader is advantageous for some children.

What is an RSS feed and how do I set it up?
RSS feeds are an easy way to keep up with news websites without having to constantly visit them as when a website is updated, that site's RSS feed can notify you and give you a link to the new content. Most current web browsers have feed readers built in. Click on the little orange button (it looks just like the image above) and choose how you want to subscribe from the drop down menu.

At Ivanhoe Library we keep a print copy of the The Guardian Weekly available for readers.
