eBooks on the BH Schools' Summer Reading Lists

School is out and that means students descending on the library to check out their assigned summer reading.  But that isn't always necessary as some of the books on the assigned lists are available for Nooks, Kindles, iPads and other ereaders. 

*Directions for downloading ebooks to your particular ereader are available here.
*The titles below are available in both Kindle & EPUB format unless otherwise noted. (EPUB format is for Nooks, iPads, iPhones, Androids and Sony Readers.)
*These titles may have waiting lists unless noted as “always available”
*Look at the assigned reading list for your particular class; this list combines honors and regular English and leaves out those books that the library only owns in print form.
*The number of people that the screen shows to be on hold for a particular book is often overstated since Berkeley Heights owns its own copy of many of these ebooks.
