I know that I’ve mentioned Overdrive and Libby before, but today is one of those days that I’m really glad that I have my library card. I’m so tired from the COVID and I don’t have much happening mentally. So I was “shopping” in the online library for books to e-read or listen to while I’m still recovering. Audiobooks are also amazing for those with attention issues. One of the things that I like to do is listen to my book while I “read” it. That way I can actually focus better.
Because of the health stuff and the crazy amount of things happening around the house, I’ve completely missed doing the summer reading program at the library. Which is a bit disappointing, but it is what it is. I can’t beat myself up too hard for not being able to spend so much fuel on going to the library. Thank goodness for online resources!
I’m currently sorting through my books, but look at all the audiobooks that I’ve got! I can’t keep the e-books the same way so I only check out one or two of those. It’s much easier to download the audiobooks and save them for later to listen to even when I don’t have access to the internet. A lot of times I put them on my MP3 player or cellphone for when I’m driving.
When you check out books at the library, they tell you how much you’ve saved by “checking out” the books instead of buying them. Part of me wants to try and compare how much money I’ve saved by downloading books on Overdrive/Libby. You can get audiobooks from Audible and Amazon and such, but why not capitalize on the money that’s already being spent on libraries?
Thanks for stopping in today! Only a few more days left in June! It’s the final stretch.
