Tidbit - Tablet Media

I read today that tablets, including Apple’s iPad and Amazon’s Kindle Fire, were purchased this holiday mainly by women in their forties according to the statistics from Maritz Research.  I stated this simply because it reminded me to give you some information on these tablets. I received a Kindle Fire for Christmas which prompted me to search for free resources for this particular tablet. One of the most wonderful things I found was the public library’s downloadable media resources where there is a vast array of books (both printed and audio), magazines, music and videos you can borrow with the use of your library card; isn’t this neat? If you don’t have a library card, now is the time to get one, which can also be applied for online.  If you don’t have a tablet, that’s okay because you can download this media for your PC, Mac and handheld devices such as BlackBerry and Android phones.  For certain media (check digital rights) you can even make CDs for on- the- go usage if you do not have WiFi capability. This amazing fact along with the ability to borrow from owners in the Kindle community make the Kindle Fire more desirable than ever for me…thanks gift giver!

What are your thoughts on this and other suggestions for free downloadable media resources?

In His service,
