Manga Reading on the Bus


Manga Reader graphic.What I Discovered On The Bus

I was riding the bus this week, reading a newspaper to pass the time--and I know this is rude--but my eyes kept straying to what another passenger was reading on his iPhone: manga.

"Is that an app or an e-book?"

He removed his ear-buds and told me about this cool, free app called Manga Reader. It’s on iTunes, has thousands of English-translated manga scans, and is a real page turner.

Didja know San Mateo County Library has more than 3,000 manga titles?

You also can download graphic novels from the San Mateo County Library.

*Please note that Manga Reader App provides licensed and unlicensed content.
