Some of our favorite comments from the READS survey:

I absolutely love reads. I am disabled and can not get to the library. I download audio books to listen too while I am at Dialysis. And E books when at home. I am on a fixed income and can not afford to buy books. This is a wonderful and valuable service. Thank you.

I love the TN Reads program as does my husband who had never enjoyed reading because he has dyslexia. When we discovered the special font for dyslexics he began reading every day. It has been such a blessing to realize he can finally read with such enjoyment after struggling for 60 years to read. If I may, I think it would be wonderful if you could inform or promote your READS program with special emphasis on the special font for dyslexsics. It has certainly made a huge difference for my husband.

This is the greatest since sliced bread!! Today is the first time I've used the new format and so far I like it.

I didn't know I could download audio books to my iphone until I took the survey! Thanks.

READS is a very good option that has greatly helped my 2 kids enjoy books and developing their abilities to read and has greatly increased our general level of knowledge. I promote READS to my friends and neighbors, especially those with kids. So Thankful to have the opportunity to utilize READS in our everyday life! ♡

I love the portability of reading a book on my kindle. I love that I can increase the text size and background on my Kindle so I can read it easier than I can read a book. Please keep the Kindle format as it weights less and is easier for arthritic hands to hold over an iPad or a printed book. I miss the ease the previous system had of ordering the Kindle version of a book over an ebook. Having to do the advanced search is much less convenient and much more confusing. Being able to check out ebook is so much easier for those of us with physical disabilities. It's also so much easier to return and for those of us with ADD, there are no more lost books, overdue fines... I absolutely love this invention and thank you for providing this book format!!

I love libraries. But I have to admit that with my hectic schedule, using READS is fast, easy, and so convenient. (Especially when I finish a book at ends with a cliffhanger and I HAVE TO get my hands on the next book at 2 AM.) Librarians are Superheroes! (But without capes.) Keep up your amazing work!
