Half of Sacramento must have received e-book readers for Christmas, judging by the number and type of tech-help and information questions we’re receiving by phone this month.

It seems like they all perform in a very similar manner, and therefore should be able to handle the e-books we offer through OverDrive. But life is not simple – where’s the fun in that?
