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:

(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.
