Overdrive #21

Overdrive from the BPL is pretty straightforward and easy to use. I decided to download an audiobook and did have a little trouble getting it onto my player more than the actual download. The same for the ebooks. The idea of an ebook on my player is more appealing to me than actually using one. The screens are too small in my opinion to make it an easy or relaxing thing to do. The downloaded version on the computer itself I found fun. Instant book checked out to me and returned on time without any effort. I'm guessing it is comparable to the Kindle just less portable it being on my laptop. The advantage of having the access to the library and the growing collection anytime is amazing. Just as the option of changing the font, type size, colour of the text, etc. would be a huge advantage to many people. The uses and ability to open the library up to so many people with this is impressive.

this is a link to an audio download of the Magic Flute. Speaking to my son about how he used to love to listen to this one night then easily was able to log in to the BPL site and download it for a quick listen again!


And I was able to download this ebook for quick drink recipes- pictures and all!
