…well, that was the advertising for the event on Wednesday….
I have updated and very much expanded my presentation about ebooks. This was for a Professional Development session for the Association of Independent Schools in Western Australia at Hale School.
If you want to find some great practical tips about useful sites and applications from a voracious Australian ebook reader please check out the comment from Clytie on my previous post. She has been incredibly generous with her time by writing a very comprehensive comment that would be and excellent blog post in itself.

- Reading devices
- Platforms and software
- Ebooks in libraries
- Pushing it – ebooks beyond 2D text
