The App That Lets You Read For Free

Recently, a friend was telling me how much she enjoys shopping in used bookstores. I appreciate the value of a hand-me-down and the thrills of perusing bookshelves for hidden gems. But in my opinion, there’s something even better than used bookstores— libraries.

Did you know my books are available through libraries?

The program that allows my books to be available in libraries is called OverDrive, and it’s used by over 30,000 libraries in more than 40 countries. It means that anyone with a library card can virtually check out an ebook or audiobook. After a reader rents a particular title, it goes to their reading device through OverDrive. You can learn more about the process HERE.

But it gets better. There’s an app called Libby, which streamlines the process and lets you get those books from the library straight to your device — as an ebook or audiobook.

Libby Library App

To use Libby…

  1. Download the app. Libby is free and is available for iOS, Android, and Windows. So you can download it from the Apple Store, Google Play, or from Microsoft.
  2. Log in to your local library using your library card number from your local library
  3. Search for the books you want.

It really is that easy! If you prefer reading on your Kindle, Libby can send your library books to it. The app also keeps positions, bookmarks, and notes in sync across al your devices.

I think this is a great alternative to buying books if you prefer to keep them only temporarily. Let me know if you use OverDrive and/or Libby, and tell me how it works for you!

Money Laundering: Everybody’s Doing It…

According to Business Insider, when it comes to money laundering, everybody’s doing it: “From corrupt politicians and drug cartels to tax cheats and alimony deadbeats, more or less everybody’s doing it.” While I think it’s a stretch to say that “everybody” is laundering money, I will say that a whole lot of people globally are […]
