I found myself browsing on the library website this morning though, and was pleasantly surprised at the way the site seemed to work better. During the check out process I chose Kindle format and was immediately transferred to Amazon.com and (once I signed in) my book was on the way to my "kindle" of choice (my iPad Kindle app)... Very nice!
So, Dear Readers... let this be a lesson. Give your local library website another chance if you haven't already. You may be pleasantly surprised! Think of all the books with your name on them!
