TeachingBooks on Your Phone and Tablet

Did you know that TeachingBooks is now just one click away on your phone, tablet, or computer?

Easily put an icon on your iOS or Android screen that will immediately launch the TeachingBooks website.

See our web page with detailed setup directions.

And just for fun, take a book and scan the barcode by clicking the barcode symbol at the top of the screen (you might need to hit the Search/magnifying glass image first). Then you can have the author and other resources with you when literally holding the book in your hands!

Let us know what you think? Thanks.
