A Year of Books

Are you looking for a reading challenge or a challenging read?

In good news for libraries and book sellers everywhere, Mark Zuckerberg has announced a reading challenge: "My challenge for 2015 is to read a new book every other week - with an emphasis on learning about different cultures, beliefs, histories, and technologies .... I'm excited for my reading challenge. I've found reading books very intellectually fulfilling. Books allow you to fully explore a topic and immerse yourself in a deeper way than most media today. I'm looking forward to shifting more of my media diet towards reading books."

The first book is The End of Power by Moises Naim. If you are a member of Newcastle Region Library you can borrow this book from our eBook collection. Apparently online bookstores have already sold out print copies of the book.  Click on the title and login with your library card number and PIN. Use this help sheet to assist with downloading the eBook.

Once you've read the book you might like to join the A Year of Books community on Facebook. Don't forget to add a comment and let us know what you think of the book also.

For help go to our eBook page or call staff on 4974 5340.
