GPC Goes Digital! eBook Editions of Many Titles Now Available

GPC Goes Digital!  eBook Editions of Many Titles Now Available

The most recent GPC newsletter, Genealogy Pointers, shares …

Our new site, library.genealogical.com, offers eBook editions of nearly 800 of our best titles, with more titles being added throughout the year. Mobility is just one of the benefits of our genealogy eBooks. All of our eBooks are priced at least 30% below their print counterparts, and there are no shipping costs associated with eBook delivery. That means that you will save from $5.50 to $7.50 on each eBook you order. At library.genealogical.com, you can • Search for books by locality, subject, time period, and other categories. • Look inside the book to view pages from the publication and search within the text. • Buy the book easily with just one click, registering with Google, Facebook, or your email. • Read the book instantly on our site or download it to the eReader of your choice. • Cut and paste content directly from the book to your genealogical project, without having to retype the information. We encourage you to visit library.genealogical.com, play around with its features, and send us with your feedback. Just so you know, we will continue to produce good-old-fashioned books. In the not-too-distant future, however, you will have your choice of print or electronic every time.

Though I do love a good print book to sit down on my couch and read, when doing research, there can be a convenience to accessing digital books; I find that they don’t tumble off of my lap the same way.  Just yesterday I was going through a series of print books, trying to keep them open, pulling content from then (while typing with one hand), while trying to keep them balanced on my lap – not a pretty sight – and, ebooks would have definitely been easier.

What’s your favorite GPC title?  Has it gone digital?
