    What an enjoyable book. In my personal opinion, the Author seemed to take more liberty placing himself into the life of Mr. Knight, then wanted. Was it out of selfish reasons or more Nobel reasons? Only Mr. Finkle can answer that. On the other hand, it seemed the book was respectfully written. Mr Knight had expressed concern of how he would be “portrayed”. If he added this one to his reading list, I do hope he was not let down. Mr Knight May of lived his life that others may find odd or crazy. But he was living it, his way. The B&E as well as stealing I found strange. I mean, understandable he saw it as a means of survival. But in the way of how he stated that he was raised being taught morals & never to take help from the Government or handouts from others. Which is why he never applied for any type of assistance, or accept help from those who offered support. But how does one decide to steal & invade the homes of others, which is morally wrong, causing a feeling of fear & being violated, just as I am sure Mr. Knight would experience if someone “helped themselves “ to his home in the forest. From accepting offered support? Granted there was the fear offered support was a trap, but when raised as what seems to be right & wrong how does one choose the gray, in a world of black & white? I am glad to know that this book was held to accountability by a number of fact checkers. Especially when we live in a world where reality & fake seem to be merged.

    Libby Rating as compared to Cloud Library

    I give Libby a 5 star rating. It was so very easy to work with, so easy to figure out. I never had to request help from the library staff. I have read more than 60 audio books using Libby App. Search is easy. Returns are automatic or if you want to return early, no problem it is a simple procedure. Hold worked without a hitch. I cannot praise this App. Enough. Port Saint Lucie Libraries has now switched us to "Cloud Library"for all audio books. I have had one problem after another with this "Cloud Library". App. First of all I cannot seem to set my setting the way I would like. I accidentally requested an e-book on this app. And couldn't figure out how to return it. It was on the app. Showing overdue for awhile, may still,be,out there somewhere. I did go to the library and try to get help, however there seems to be only one person who can help, and she had not responded to my request for help and it has been 2 weeks. And, the gentleman with whom I spoke when I went to the library tried to convince me that it was NOT possible to borrow an ebook in Cloud Library even tho I have a photo of that book indicating that it is in an overdue status. I am looking forward to the day I am asked to review "Cloud Library", I will go into more depth re: my problems working with this App.

    I love this app- there are no real downsides

    It is almost too perfect. A simple idea at first, just an online library. However, with so many apps where you pay large amounts of money just to get access to audio and digital books, this is the only one I have found that is actually free and amazingly easy to use. Because it is a library app, all you need for it to work is a library card and a library that has an online section. You can check out the audiobooks like a normal library. There are even considerate touches like a timer for sleep, and a manual bookmark. Unlike a physical book, these online one will automatically save your spot even if you have to turn it in, and so when/if you wanted to check it out again you will pickup where you left off! You do have a limit of 7 books checked out at a time, there are waitlists for popular titles, and it automatically returns the title after a certain amount of time (you have control over this) but I see these as minor things, and if you put a hold on a book it will automatically loan it and send you an email/notification. I love this app and would love to rant all day about why. If you are at all considering getting this I would deeply recommend.

    I used to exclusively read e-books using my Kindle app. And don’t get me wrong: I was grateful the Kindle app was free. The problem was that I spent a fortune every year buying books. And even though I read the free samples before buying, and only purchased those I felt hooked by, it’s surprising how many books are just awful; the sample was the best part. When I found out about Libby, my life changed. I still buy books after reading on Libby if I know I’ll want to read again and again. But Libby made it possible for me to save SO much of my hard-earned money. I also love their UX—it’s easy, lovely to look at and use, and the fact you can not only put a hold on books but also delay them is fantastic. I love that I can see where I am in the waiting line. I love the in-book features such as being able to translate or define a word. I love that it detects when I’m finished and with one click can return early. I love being able to share my Libby account across devices. They make nearly everything effortless. Perhaps the only problem I have ever had was that they don’t have every single title I’ve looked for. But, thank you Libby for everything you do for me and fellow bookworms. I highly recommend to others!!

    Finally Reading Consistently Again

    I found Libby through the App Stories and it’s been wonderful. Buying books can be costly and storage consuming (physical and in the cloud). I’m not one to browse the library and I have an incredible gift of procrastination that almost guarantees a rented physical book will not get returned on time. But insert Libby and it’s a game changer for me. The ability to rent ebook versions of some books is fantastic and I don’t have to worry about my rental being late because the ebook is automatically returned when my rental period has run out. Every year one of my resolutions is to read more and every year I don’t, until now! The app is compatible with Kindle so I can read books on my personal Kindle device or with the app. It tells you how many copies of a book are available, how many are in use, and an estimated time for how long you have to wait for your copy. I also like that there’s only 21 days to read a book. Having a specific window of time to read a book I’m interested in means that I now rarely put off finishing a book. Plus added bonus many books have audio books and they are free (goodbye Audible!). It’s been awesome to rediscover how enjoyable consuming books can be!
