The most popular ebook reads during 2020 were:
- Holes by Louis Sachar
- Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan

So far this year the most popular ebook reads include:

Students can access Wheelers on their Chromebook via the Wheelers Books Google app. Wheelers can also be used on a phone or tablet; download the Wheelers ePlatform app and select McKinnon Secondary College to get started.
