Libraries are now equipped with e-reading devices for loan to the public, with the service launched by Minister of State for Trade and Industry and National Development Lee Yi Shyan on Thursday last week.
I feel it’s a great thing that steps are being taken to bridge the digital divide and making reading more relevant to the younger generation. What I would really want is to be able to purchase ebooks globally on US websites. There might be a need to revisit and make amendments to geographic rights of digital books. Geographic restrictions of ebooks are soooo outdated in this age of the internet!
