I've already talked about why I love reading so much, but I'm not sure I've mentioned just how much I love my Kindle. I have always been an avid reader, but when I would go on trips, I definitely did not enjoy the added baggage of books. For a few years, I used an iPad mini, but I hated the glare when I tried to read outside, and I felt it was so expensive for a reader. When Amazon came out with the Kindle Paperwhite, Eddie got me one and I haven't looked back since. I've had the same one since 2016, going on four years now. It still works perfectly, and it is in great shape. But you want to know why I love it?
I often get asked where I get my books from. A while back, I had someone tell me about Libby, an app through Overdrive, from the public library system. All you need is a library card, and you can borrow books from the app just like you do at the library. You can browse thousands upon thousands of books, including kids' books. You can browse new releases, popular books, and available books. Just like with physical books, the library has a set number of copies they loan out, so you may have to join waiting list and put a hold on your book. You can have holds on up to 10 books at a time, and you can have up to 10 loans at a time. When you borrow a book, you borrow it for 21 days. It is delivered to the device you choose, and will appear there for 21 days until your loan is up, or until you return your copy early.
It's completely free, and by using Libby, I have saved HUNDREDS of dollars on books in the last year. Friends, you cannot afford to not get this! I initially spent money on my Kindle, but over the long run, I have definitely saved money by using this app! If you go ahead and do this, let me know how you like it.
