I was introduced to an app, that dare I say, has been a game changer in my life. I am surrounded by people whom are avid readers. I have always wanted to be, but I am just not a fast reader so I only read books here and there. Welcome to Overdrive. #Overdrive is an app where you enter your local library card number and voilà, your libraries’ selection is pretty much available via your phone, tablet or laptop. For me, the best part is the availability of #audiobooks. I have listened to well over 30 books since mid-January, all while driving in my car. I just love it!
Overdrive is an app where you enter your local library card number and voilà, your libraries’ selection is pretty much available via your phone, tablet or laptop.
You can put books on hold just like you would at the library and when it becomes available, you get an email. They also offer a rather nice selection of magazines and a few newspapers. Did I say it is all free? I download the books to my phone as verses listening to them via streaming to save on my phone’s data. If you have blue tooth in your car, you are set.
You choose how many days you want to take the book out with 21 days being the max. Once the 21 days pass, it automatically takes the book back. If you haven’t finished it and choose to take it out a month or two later, it will remember what page you left off.
Download it now…it works on all the different devises seamlessly.
I am sharing Overdrive with everyone I know and I hope you do too. It is absolutely fabulous!
