Seriously. I downloaded an EBook.

Last week I downloaded Arena One to my Android tablet.  Seriously?  That’s right; I read a book on my Android tablet.  Seriously. No need for a Kindle or a Nook.

Downloading an audio or EBook could not be easier.  The Tucker Free Library has just purchased a digital copy of Arena One as part of the Advantage Title program. It is only available at the Tucker Free Library as an EBook.  Advantage Titles means the EBooks has been purchased for only Tucker Free Library patrons.  Just for you!

As an Advantage Title, Arena One, can be downloaded to any devise.  Two formats are available; Kindle and EPub.  Some titles are only available in the EPub version, but do not worry.  Kindles are compatible with EPub formats.  If you have the newest Kindle, the Kindle Fire, you will have to download a special media player.  It will be worth it to then have your pick of free downloads.

Never downloaded a book before?  I swear to you it is easy.  This is my first EBook, and I will be downloading more.  Once you are signed on to NH Downloadable Books, with your library card number and your phone number as the password, you have your pick of free audio and EBooks.

It is just like the library.  If a title is out, place the book on hold, and you will get an email once it has been returned.  At that time, a clock starts ticking.  The book will be available for you to download within 48 hours.  Once downloaded, it will stay on your device for two weeks. It will not take you two weeks to complete Arena One.

Arena One is a fast paced book, with action on every page.  The situations Brooke and Ben find themselves in are a little farfetched, but very exciting.  Their spirit and determination are what propel the story forward.

Since, Arena One is first book in the Survivor Trilogy it ends with quite the cliffhanger.  And seriously, I want to know what happens!?!?!

The year is 2112 and their world has ended.  There has been a nuclear war.  They have fled from New York City to the woods in upstate New York. Brooke, Bree, and Ben are Survivors.  Brooke is the older sister and is very protective of Bree.  Unknowingly, Ben and Brooke have been helping each other live in the hills.  Each survives due to their shared perseverance, and determination to live.

They live in the woods for years, until one day the Slaverunners capture Bree when Brooke is out hunting.  Brooke is determined to free Bree no matter what the cost.  Once captured, the survivors must fight in Arena One.  Arena One is a huge auditorium where captured individuals fight to the death.

Ben’s brother was also taken by the Slaverunners.  Now more than ever they must work together to reach their siblings in time.  Together, they learn about what is expected of the survivors at Arena One and what is really needed to save their siblings.  Once they think they have it all figured out, new rules and new obstacles are placed in their way.

I am looking forward to getting some answers and continuing the story in the next installment of the trilogy.  Until then, I will continue downloading EBooks, and wondering…

Seriously, What happens next?!?!
