Vince is now done with 10 Things!
So I followed the link to the digital book collection and just tried downloading the first book that appeared, which was Blue Water by A. Manette Ansay. All I had to do was enter my library card number and I was all ready for download. Since I already have Adobe Reader on my home computer, there was no need to download any unnecessary software. The download time took a little over a second and there it was, my first downloaded ebook. All I can say is that it looks like a book, it reads like a book, and it is a book! But when it's on a computer, I feel like I'm missing something. It just doesn't feel the same, I miss turning the pages and the whiffing sound it makes. Personally, I would rather stick to a real book. I find them more convenient to carry around since they can fit easily into compact spaces. In conclusion, I just like books better although I think ebooks are somewhat cool as well.
I think the SPL website is really well organized. I have never downloaded an ebook in my life and I was able to do so without any problem. All I had to do was read the instructions and follow the link on the SPL website. All I can say is that the SPL website is well structured and very user friendly. Really good stuff.
Hopefully I remember the new things I've learned during this experience and maybe I'll run into them in the future and know exactly what I'm doing. I'm Done!!!
