Apps for your Reading Pleasure

If you like to read new releases, you may want to try some great apps to get new release e-books for free.  

  • Overdrive - allows you to check Kindle, ePub, or audiobooks out of your local library OR many larger libraries nationwide.  You can contact larger libraries to get a digital library card and then search their collection on Overdrive.
  • Libby - Libby is another book lending app where you can borrow for a limited time, read on your phone or tablet, and then return.
  • Kindle - If you don't mind buying books, you can purchase books on Amazon and read or listen to them on the Kindle app.  
  • BookBub - this isn't exactly an app, but rather an email service that finds inexpensive or free eBooks on Amazon and send you an email about them.
