Great way to enjoy books

I have been loving the BorrowBox site since a friend recommended it to me. My eyesight isn’t as good as it was and listening to books has been great. I have listened to heaps of books and heaps of different authors this is a fantastic way to unwind in these stressful times.
I set timer on book and full asleep hearing story and if wake in nite put timer on for while till drift off again.
Some books get me hooked and I end up finishing them all to quickly while I’m getting on with my day or driving.. THANKS HEAPS cheers Fay

Good free service

Solid service for free Audiobooks and Ebooks. Most of the time you have to wait a couple of weeks to a couple of months (less often) to borrow although in rare cases you can listen straight away when no one else has the book, which can be extremely convenient. But I have noticed that most of the good books have quite a extensive line to borrow. The magazine selection is poor but expected and the app layout is slightly clunky but again expected for a free service. Amount of available loans is okay to good. More categories would also be good.

Best home library ever

I’m a borrow box user from very early on and have been very happy indeed.
Unlike my husband who has to find a car park to visit the library I do it all from the comfort of home.
My only desire would be to be reminded if I’d already read the book and in which year. I have go through so many that it takes a while to read the list when the book sounds vaguely familiar.
