    We as readers are so spoiled with the wealth of technology at our disposal. Not only can we pick and choose between many platforms for reading but there is an inexhaustible amount of material within our compass. This literary world is made readily available to people of all lifestyles thanks in large part to our local library systems and platforms such as Overdrive Media. Remember to thank a teacher or a librarian at least as often as you read.

    I was diagnosed over a year ago with Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP) and. am unable to read so getting books on tape has saved me! I listen to at least 1 to 2 books a week.. What aGodsend for my sanity . Thank you.

    By allowing visually impaired me to ‘zoom in’ and virtually enlarge what’s unavailable in large-print edition, ebooks enlarge my world. #ebooklove

    Love my free ebooks using Overdrive. I can do the “heavy” lifting of all of my many books, held in the palm of my hand, using my ipad.

    Have always been a “bookworm”. Can’t remember a time I’m not reading. I just finished reading Cat and Mouse and am looking forward to getting Pop goes the Weasel. Thank you Queens Library and Overdrive.

    Hubby and I have to take long rides to shop, dr.visits, etc. and it’s so easy to read on the way; in the car or dr’s office. It’s on my iPad and iPhone!

    A friend suggested that I try reading ebooks from Overdrive and I haven’t looked back since! I get most of my books online now from the Halifax Central Library.I especially like the wide range of books to choose from, especially In Canadian Literature which is a personal favorite of mine.I recently read “From a Good Home “by Trudy Johnston who is from Newfoundland and “Late Nights on Air” by Elizabeth Hay.
    Because the reader is able to enlarge the print and the screen is bright , it makes the reading move along more quickly.I am always pleased when I see ebooks that have been “Recommended” for me as it makes me feel like somebody is making an effort to select books that I will enjoy.I appreciate that … Thanks to Halifax Central Libray and Overdrive.

    I love when I get an email letting me know my e book is available and all I have to do is push a button and it’s mine for 21 days. And I can read straight from my phone anywhere, anytime.
    I still love the fill of a book, but oh the convenience.

    Im reenjoying Enders Game, and found prior that Orson Scott Card has a whole group of background books that add to the timeline before and after Enders Game. It helps when you can put them in order first, but you will still enjoy them. I did.

    Our bookclub is reading Five Smooth Stones and I ordered 5 copies for those who needed a copy. The huge paperback was difficult to manage reading in bed, the tiny print hard on my eyes and thin pages difficult to turn. Next time club met I gave my copy to a new member and bought the ebook. My kindle manages any size or shape book very well!!! And we’re happy to go to bed together

    I love reading the books on my I pad. I take it everywhere I go and especially love it when I travel. It saves me loads of luggage space.
    I also really enjoy listening to e-books. I can get all of my housework done without even sitting down. I have even been known to listen while I do yoga at home.

    I’m reading, or rather listening to, Eighty Days, the story of Nellie Bly and Elizabeth Bisland’s race around the world. Love requesting ebooks or audio books from our local library. I’ve read or listened to all kinds of books, some I probably wouln’t have tried reading from a regular book, like Stephen Hawkings, A Brief History of Time.
