The app that has currently been catching my attention is the OverDrive Media Console. Avid readers, this one is for you! While I am trying to read more, I think I a going to wait until I finish up all of my reading for my two graduate school classes this summer. However, I have hooked my mom and sister onto OverDrive!
It’s an excellent app for reading eBooks and listening to audio books for FREE! You utilize this app to checkout and download books from your local public library. The book then downloads directly to your mobile device for access anywhere you are with that device. Your bookshelf will house all of the books that you currently have checked out, so you can read multiple texts at the same time! So, you can see what’s on my list here!
A couple of things to know:
- You can only have five books checked out at any given time.
- You check out books for 14 days.
- Not all titles are available.
Then, you can enjoy reading on the go with all those books and only carrying around one thing!
