Today is 'Read an eBook Day!'
If you have a smartphone, tablet or computer you can be connected to a world of literature whether you’re sitting on your couch, on an airplane 30,000 feet in the air and anywhere in between. They save you space in your backpacks, can’t be lost or damaged and can be accessed at the click of a button. eBooks enable you to take the stories and authors you love with you anytime, anywhere.
BGS Libraries gives you access to thousands of titles including a wide range of international titles, literary and genre fiction as well as best sellers and the latest YA releases!
Don't forget to share with us what you're reading by using the hashtag #bgslibraries
