Using the app Overdrive, I am finding so many library books so easily that I am reading more ebooks than ever before, borrowed from my local library. I understand Libby is even better. 

What books are on your desk this week?

I've heard of Overdrive, but have never used it.

I loved Don't You Cry, and have the author's newest, Every Last Lie.

Enjoy your week, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

Mm, Americanah was a good read. Have fun with it! And have a nice week :)

Overdrive is great. I'll have to look at Libby, not familiar with it. And I've been reading a lot of psychological thrillers lately, but haven't tried Mary Kubica yet.

I love Overdrive, but am not familiar with Libby. Will check it out.

I loved The Garden of Small Beginnings!

I enjoyed Don't You Cry - Pretty Baby is my favourite by this author.

We read My No So Perfect Life perfect life for book club in March. Most of our members enjoyed it but it didn't really work for me.

Have a great week, happy reading!

I'd like to get to The Garden of Small Beginnings soon - I keep hearing great things about it.

I've never heard of Overdrive! Making a note right now. How awesome is that.

Will have a look at a few of the psychological thrillers you've shared, always love reading that genre.

The Garden of Small Beginnings is a great title and I will also look into it!

Happy reading and here's my Library Card for May: http://marelithalkink.blogspot.co.za/2017/05/library-card-may-2017.html

I read a ton of books via Overdrive in 2015 but I haven't liked their recent updates. Mostly now the ebooks I'm reading are ones I've purchased.

Saturday was my the junior to cadette bridging ceremony in San Francisco. My daughter and I are sore and sunburnt from our adventure but we had fun. Come see what I'm reading.

I need to check out Libby.

I've used Overdrive for SYNC Audios but just learned yesterday that I can access library books with it. :-) I hadn't heard of Libby.
Hope you have a good week and Happy Reading!
