Each product has benefits and limitations when it comes to using it for bookclub. Our main online products are:
myON books can be accessed by multiple users simultaneously. myON's strength is non-fiction so the selection for bookclubs are limited. They are really good for graphic novels and high-interest, low level publications. Books are leveled using the Fountas and Pinnell system
Epic is not easy to search but, books are leveled using the Fountas and Pinnell system. Books are only available during school hours unless families subscribe to a paid account. Families with accounts can download and read books offline.

BorrowBox is not usually the platform that we have multiple copies on, but, a lot of eBooks are surprisingly inexpensive so it is not unreasonable for us to buy 4-5 copies of a title if there are titles that interest the students. We can usually make them available within 24 hours.
