Books and magazines

I’m a reader I love my fiction, I like my paper books and I love my ipad (library app) novels.

I still visit my local council library as there are a few series of books I like to read and the library is pretty up to date on their editions. If there is a series and they have several of the book but not the last one yet you can request the next book (though no more that 3 months before release date) in the series to be bought …. and you get to be number 1 on the list, I know what it is to be number 34 on a list.

My ipad I don’t buy a book I don’t want a digital copy, but there are a lot of freebies out there and my council library have apps I found out via their online booking (for the paper backs) so that I can not only get my local books but books state or Au wide it opens up so much more to read.

There is also a magazine app that comes with my local library that you can download for most magazines that are new and old releases. I’m a skimmer when I read magazines they can be on and off my ipad in a matter of 10 minutes. I’ve also found that I read magazines that are not my usual fare, who knew I’d like a woodworking magazine?

Ask at your local library if they have any apps associated with your library card. I found that mine has 2 adult library book apps, 1 childrens book app and 1 magazine app and they all work off my very old library card.

Check it out.

    I love Libby and /or Overdrive for my library books and I will buy a Kindle book sometimes if the library doesn’t have it. Yes, I know what it’s like to be in line for a book and then hope to be able to finish it in the allotted time. I’m reading a series at the moment where the books have about three thousand pages. I appreciate not having to hold the book!

    1. … and then you tap the bottom of the paper page or lick your finger to turn the digital page … or is that just me lol.
      My library ditched Overdrive and took up Cloud library and BorrowBox with the magazines being RBdigital. Bookmyne app keeps track of my paperback novels and when they are in or I can book a novle. So easy 🙂
