With a gift to Buy a Book, a bookplate with a personalized message will be placed in each new book purchased by the library. The bookplate will include the name of the donor and the name of anyone the donor chooses to honor or recognize. A copy of the personalized message and a letter of acknowledgement will be sent to both the donor and the honoree or the honoree’s family. The information will also appear in the library’s online catalog of materials.
Both platforms can give you a book sample before you buy a title, but iBooks gives you more text, and it's a little easier to buy from an iBooks sample.
How to Buy Educational Workbooks
Campus bookstores suck. They convince you that you need to buy a textbook for $150, and you’ll crack it open on that one day you were feeling studious, before realizing your exams are straight from the class notes/Powerpoint slides and you don’t even need that 10 pound eyesore in the first place.
So, before getting excited for that sweet deal you got, think about how long you want your book to resist. Of course, you can always a hard cover for your paperback book, if you are into DIY. If you’re going to buy a book to gift it to someone, it’s better to buy a hardcover one. If you want to buy something for a quick read, you can always go with paperback.
