The SouthernCross Review e-Book Library

The SouthernCross Review has expanded into e-book publishing. This is a process, so our library is still small, but growing. Credit cards (Visa, Master, Amex) are now accepted in payment.

E-books have advantages and disadvantages. The advantages are that you can get books that otherwise might not have been available at all. Or, if they were, you might not have known of their existence. All books published by SCR are also recommended by us - as opposed to some e-publishers who literally accept anything. Another indisputable advantage is price. A book that might cost $20 - $30 in print will only cost between 2 and 4 dollars as an e-book - or it might even be free (see below).

The disadvantages are that you either have to read a whole book on the screen or print it out. This isn't the same as having a nicely bound "real" book in your hands when you sit before the fireplace. Well, if you have a fireplace, you can also read an e-book there and be just as warm. Moreover, there is a program available which makes reading and printing considerably easier and speeds up reception: Adobe Acrobat Reader, which we are using and which you must have to read and/or print the books. This program is free from the web and is well worth the few minutes required to download. If you don't already have it, Click: Adobe Acrobat Reader
