I had to walk away when there was a conversation regarding purchasing a hard copy book and getting unlimited ebooks. Can I have more info on this?

Hi Sarai, Several publishers are now offering a hybrid model of a hardback/ebook package. I have experience with Abdo, Lerner, and Rourke for my elementary library. For the digital book club I spoke of, we used an Abdo series of classics. Please feel free to email me for more information. lindamartin423@gmail.com
