    Solves my tinnitus problem!

    I have constant ringing in my ears (tinnitus) that nearly drives me crazy when everything is perfectly quiet, making it very hard to go to sleep. But, problem solved by letting Overdrive read me a book (if there is some sound for me to hear, I don’t notice the tinnitus). Before I lay down, I set the sleep timer for 15 minutes, then I relax while I listen to the story and it turns itself off after I am asleep. The best part is, you can use the bookmark feature to save your place periodically, then you can easily find your place by going to your bookmark and using the fast forward and 15 second advance (or 15 second back up) buttons. I use this app EVERY night. Caution: save thrillers and page turners to listen to on long car rides! For bedtime, I listen to funny, stress free stories like Janet Evanovich books- they are funny and entertaining and don’t keep me awake. Last tip, for best results to induce sleep, I listen to the my favorite books over and over. That way, I don’t have to worry about ‘missing something’. You can have up to five books at a time, so I also listen to Overdrive while I am cleaning house, gardening (great time to listen to “how-to” books) or driving (it plays through my cars speakers). Best of all, you can temporarily download the books to your phone so you can listen to it even if you don’t have wi-fi available. Love this app!!!

    I have never reviewed an app. Ever. This app deserves more than 5 stars. In my opinion, this is one of the most innovative programs I have had the good fortune to come across. The ease of checkout is astounding as is the number of available printed books and audiobooks. Since I often travel the East Coast by car, pre-OD, I had to be sure I got to my local library to check out enough audiobooks to get me there and back. If I failed to get there in time I might not have an audiobook to listen to on a trip. Then I would have to borrow audiobooks from a local restaurant and I would inevitably be late in returning them and incur a large late fee. With OverDrive, I never have to remember to return the books (since they just expire into the Ethernet)! If I don’t like a title, I can just delete it and download another! No more fines! No last minute scrambling to check out books! No more being upset that I have to listen to the entire book just because I don’t like the others I brought. I did have a bit of an issue in the beginning, but I persisted and now can easily navigate the site. Hmmm... I was just wondering... does this app check out books and scholarly journals from the Library of Congress? Don’t all US residents have THAT library card? Again, thank you. I love, love, love this app! The developers are geniuses!

    Makes reading much more convenient

    Libraries are truly wonderful and amazing places, and yet they have their limitations (not open 24/7), don't have every book, lots of books can be heavy, etc.). We still go to our library (conveniently right across the street), but the overwhelming majority of my book reading is now on the Overdrive app. I usually have five or six books checked out, five or six books on hold, and hundreds on the wish list (to remind myself of what I want to read next). We listen to audio books as a family on road trips using Overdrive, usually have at least one book checked out that I'm reading with each of my kids, and I've finally read lots of literature (fiction and non-fiction) that I've been meaning to read for decades. My only frustrations are with what my library has available and the app has a "Recommend" feature that allows readers to suggest the library acquire the rights to books it doesn't currently have. I love Overdrive and the only downside is that I'm tempted to read when I shouldn't because I always have six great books in my pocket.

    Brilliant, a lifesaver for the Library System

    This application has brought me countless hours of entertainment and education. I can select, with ease, from several cooperating local libraries. And I am a “Library Felon” no more, because books are returned automatically, with no overdue fees. Surely this service will bring more people back to the public library system, which deserves continued support. The audiobook options are my favorite feature. What a treat to be read to while driving to work! Please consider adding the ability to look these up by narrator, because some readers (Barbara Rosenblatt, Jim Dale, Stephen Fry, the late Patrick Tull) are very gifted, while others may be drone-y, or absurdly over-expressive. It would be nice to easily avoid those. I agree that the “1 day remaining” notification is misleading, but exact expiration time can be accessed by “Loans”, under the books icon. Some books are improperly indexed. Using Advanced Search by author often yields nothing, but specific titles by that author can be found. Thank you for this splendid service.

    Awesome By Not Even Needing To Read More Than One Book(I Hope)

    I was looking in my backpack 🎒 for my books 📚 to read. Then I found out that they weren’t in my backpack. There were in school! (This happens a lot so I don’t why I was surprised) I was so frustrated and confused because I thought I put my books in my backpack. Clearly no. Crossing fingers 🤞🏻that it’s at school. Anyways, I quickly looked for a book app and I found this. I asked my mom if I canould get it and she said yes! 😁 I did all the process to actually get into it and when I finally did, I searched up the book I needed, “Nine, Ten”. It was there! And I didn’t even need to actually go to the library to get it (Like other apps. GR....)! I was/am so happy! I’m definitely going to use this app whenever the same problem happens which is probably going to be in a week or two. I never know. Anyways t his is the best app ever! Thanks for making this app whoever made the app. I hope this convinces you to get it whoever is reading this! Have an amazing day!
