Take Your Reading Digital and Access Free Books

By Mary Martinez, NAR Manager, Library & Information Services

bkblg_ebookslogoNo surprise, real estate sales books consistently rank among the top circulating titles in the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®’ Virtual Library eBooks Collection, a special library collection just for REALTORS® and association staff.

But, this digital collection offers something for every facet of life. NAR members have free access to 1,000 downloadable books, audio books, and videos on everything from managing a real estate career to learning Japanese … from practicing time management to practicing yoga … from using a digital camera to making real money in Second Life.

Among the most popular eBooks in May were those on foreclosed properties:

  • Buying Real Estate Foreclosures
  • How to Make Money on Foreclosures
  • Make Money in Short-Sale Foreclosures

However, other eBooks making the top 10 list in May included audio books on learning Spanish — Instant Immersion Spanish and Dr. Blair’s Spanish In No Time; eBooks on Internet marketing — 200 Marketing Ideas for Your Website; and an audio book on voice skills — The Executive Voice Trainer.

The Virtual Library eBooks Collection is available 24/7, provides all the necessary eReader software, and doesn’t cost a dime — all you need is your NRDS number and the Quick Start Guide to take your reading digital.
