Do you enjoy the virtual page-turning experience? If you are do (doh) you might be interested to hear that you can now borrow e-books from Wellington City Libraries’ Overdrive service.
Some of the titles already available include the following:
- The 10 pm Question, Kate De Goldi*
- Beautiful Malice, Rebecca James*
- The Bride’s Farewell, Meg Rosoff*
- Clockwork Angel, Cassandra Clare
- The Dead, Charlie Higson
- Lock and Key, Sarah Dessen
- The Sky is Everywhere, Jandy Nelson*
(and much more)
Overdrive e-books are in EPUB format, and will work on a PC, Mac, Sony Reader or Kobo (but not unfortunately a Kindle). In December/January you will also be able to access them on iPads, iPhones and iPod touches.
Like Overdrive audiobooks, e-books are free to download, and you won’t have to worry about overdues. For more information about what you will need to start downloading e-books have a look at this page here.
* Incidentally, these are some of the books that we think are the choicest.
