Kindle Paperwhite Has Arrived
Don't miss this alternative reading experience! Ten sets of Kindle Paperwhite with pre-loaded content will be available for check out soon.  Each set will be loaded with 20 popular titles from Amazon.  With one Kindle in hand, you will be able to choose from a selection of general fiction and non-fiction, memoirs or crimes and mysteries novels:  Geoffrey Archer, Jo Nesbo, Terry Pratchett, Yann Martel, and lots more. All are bestselling authors with rave reviews. 
Those accustomed to print books, put aside your worries and try out this popular e-reader.  You will be surprised at how "paperlike" the reading experience is. Kindle uses a remarkable black-and-white e-ink technology which makes reading so much easier on the eyes as compared to reading on IPads or other color LCD devices.
A new handy feature of the Paperwhite is the built-in light which allows you to adjust the level of brightness according to individual preferences.  The display can be optimized for reading whether you are under a glaring sun or in a dimly lit room.
The Kindle check-out kit comes with a quick-start guide. Learn a few simple tricks and you will soon be lost in a world of good reads.  For title lists, loan rules and other details, please visit:
