When looking at the research about how to encourage guys to become readers, one point that comes up over and over again involves providing guys with a reading format that they enjoy. Formats could include traditional books, comics, audiobooks, or a whole host of other formats.

KDL has a very robust digital collection and there are many great guy titles ready to be devoured on a variety of devices from eReaders like the Kindle or Nook, to tablets like the iPad or from smart phones to computers.
