Library Apps for Book Lovers

Slowly, over the past decade, I have come over to the dark side and became a reader of eBooks. It happened slowly but it surely happened. I think it’s more a convenience and practical thing for in my heart of hearts, I still dream of bookshelves and cozy reading nooks where I can inhale the warm woody, vanilla-ish scent of book leaves turning brittle over time.

While on maternity leave last year, I started reading again and discovered that somehow I had never looked into borrowing books online. I was baffled by how I had never thought to do this before but I am ecstatic at how much easier some of these apps have made keeping myself on track to read every day:


 OverDrive Media Console

Hands down, this is The top free app! It allows you to access libraries worldwide, check out audiobooks, eBooks, stream films and request books. All you need is a valid library card. It does have a few kinks but it does the job effectively.

Kindle

I use my Kindle app in conjuction with most of reading apps like OverDrive to customize my reading experience. In addition as an Amazon Prime member with Kindle Unlimited, I have access to troves of books and free magazines as well.

Bluefire Reader 

Because sometimes I review unpublished ebooks, I need an app that can support these formats. Bluefire helps make this easier too.

Do you use any of these?
