An American Christmas Harp is available in PDF for those who wish to consult it from a tablet, such as the iPad. It is easy* to sing from a tablet, especially in low-light situations, and makes suitcases lighter (leave the book behind) when travelling to shapenote singings.  Those who find tablets easier to hold than physical books will also appreciate this format. It is quite legible on the screen sizes of the Kindle HD Fire and iPad Air (2013 model). Each copy sold in this format will be personalized with the customer's name. Instructions on how to load it onto your device, and suggestions for which applications make it easy to navigate during a singing will also be provided.

*There is a short list of songs that cannot be sung from a tablet because they are two-page songs with multiple verses printed as poetry on the 2nd page, rather than with the music staves. One work-around is to print out the extra verses onto a piece of paper & hold it adjacent to the tablet while singing. List of these songs:

#26 Water Town
#30 Judea
#47 Sherburne
#49 Shiloh
#56 New Bethlehem
#90 Star In The East
#130 Shepherds Arise
#132 Hark Shepherds Hark
