Three Top Circulating E-books for Teens in 2012

And here they are - the three top teen e-books that circulated at libraries (three of the top circulating titles out of the top ten were teen titles - not bad!).

According to Annie Suhy of Overdrive, 2012 was the year of the YA novel, as teens and adults gobbled up the latest additions to popular series.  The Kill Order is the "prequel" to the popular Maze Runner series by James Dashner, Rapture is the 4th book in the Fallen series by Lauren Kate, and Entice is the second book in Jessica Shirvington's Violet Eden series. 

Did you get a nook, kindle, or iPad for Christmas?  Did you know that you can check out books for your e-reader if you own a library card?  Access the instruction booklet for how to download a library book here
