Book­worm

Mac Format - - APPLE TALK -

As a re­cent Mac user, I was in­ter­ested in the ar­ti­cle about bor­row­ing free li­brary ebooks. How­ever, I spent a long time try­ing to find the free app in the App Store to no avail. Just in case oth­ers are strug­gling to ac­cess Over­Drive, I wanted to let you know that I sim­ply ac­cessed the li­brary web­site, where I am a mem­ber, the icon was dis­played to click on, with­out down­load­ing any­thing I was able to ac­cess the books us­ing my li­brary card num­ber.

It works re­ally well and is sim­pler to use than it ap­pears at first. It’s a great find, so thanks to the team for alert­ing read­ers to this. Pauline Dawes Alex Blake says… Thanks, Pauline. We were ac­tu­ally talk­ing about the iOS ver­sion of the Over­Drive app in our tu­to­rial (for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad – the ver­sion we specif­i­cally looked at), but it is avail­able for the Mac desk­top from https://app.over­drive.com.

Ebook lend­ing through Over­Drive is in­deed avail­able from cer­tain UK li­braries now. They pro­vide a handy search atover­drive.com/li­braries. We think it’s great that li­braries are tak­ing ebook lend­ing se­ri­ously, which will hope­fully keep more of them open in the fu­ture.
