  • Books 24x7 is very good at keeping their content up to date, offering new selections on a regular basis.
  • The books are easy to search for by topic and can be sorted and stored for future reading in a custom library.
  • The selection of books is very versatile and multi-faceted.
  • The biggest issue I have with Books 24x7 is that you have to be online to read the books. It would be nice if there was a download option where you could read the book in an e-reader app like Kindle or Nook.
  • The portal to log in to Books 24x7 is not easy to navigate. This may be an issue internally with our Information Systems.
  • Having an option to highlight sections of the book as you are reading it would be very helpful.
Books 24x7 is well suited for a corporate environment where employees need to have access to a variety of books on many topics. It is not so friendly for someone who is traveling because they have to be online, logged into the company network in order to read the books they have put on their shelf. One time when it is most convenient to read is on an airplane, but this is not an option in the current setup of Books 24x7.
