Love this App

I have read some of the negative reviews for Overdrive and I am surprised. My experience has been excellent! I use both Overdrive and Libby and they sync together. I have library cards with two libraries, at home and cottage, so I can always find something to read! I am happy to wait on holds for popular books and it is easy to access my account and check how long it will be until holds will be available. I love to read books in hardcover and paperback, but more and more my first choice is an ebook and Overdrive has been incredible. I can access my libraries from anywhere in the world as long as I have Web access.
