OVERDRIVE APP, BORROW BOOKS AND AUDIO ONLINE.



I've just discovered the app Overdrive, this can be downloaded onto ipad, iphone and other devices to enable you to borrow books and Audio books for free from your local library.
They can be loaned for 7, 14, and 21 days.

Maybe you already know of this but I have only just found it and am really enjoying listening to audio books on it.

All you need is your local Library no and pin no to enable you to use it.  go take a look I think its great.

  1. I have been using the service, but find the programme the books play on, doesn't enable me to turn the volume up high enough, so that if I am say, using the sewing machine, boiling the kettle etc I cannot hear properly and have to pause the book.

  4. my life would be lost with out Overdrive. but i don't have an app, i just use my computer to get books sent to my kindle. our library has Overdrive and i can read on line on their site, listen on line, of send to my kindle. this is good to know for people who have tablets/phones because they don't need a kindle or e reader.... gone are the days when i drove to library, picked up 5 books, got back home and had read 2 of them before or did not like the book enough to read it and back to the library i go. yesterday i downloaded a James Patterson and it was AWFUL, so was the other book.... 2 hours later i returned them and got 2 more... with out traffic...

  5. Sadly, there are no libraries in this country. Most of the established bookstores have gone out of business because the silly government still censors everything and made it hard for magazines and such to get through. Thankfully we do have a couple of secondhand bookshops that are nice and cozy. Have a good week.
