How the YPRL Mobile App saved my life!

It was a close call! I had an unexpected appointment which I knew would mean waiting for up to an hour in a tiny, windowless waiting room with NOTHING TO READ! I can cope with anything if I have a book to read but my iPad was bare! One eye was twitching, my hands were shaking. I could feel my heart racing.

There was no time to scour the YPRL catalogue, to see what was in my ‘For later' list, no time to check out what was new in adult fiction! Too many choices. Too little time.


It was then that I remembered my YPRL Mobile APP.  Two taps and there was the Herald Sun (Victoria) Best Sellers List. Quickly I ran my eyes, down the titles. Hurry, no time to waste! Wait, there was a popular book I hadn’t read, reviewed by a borrower whose selections I had enjoyed in the past!

Thankfully, I borrowed it and downloaded it to my iPad in seconds as I raced out the door to my appointment.

As I took my seat, I opened my iPad and lost myself in my new book. My racing pulse slowed, I could feel the tension leaving my body.

eBooks,iPads, Apps – not luxuries – ESSENTIALS for the modern reading woman!
