Listen to This!
Whew! After a week of dystopia it is time for the Dangerous Library Book Pushers to feature some (possibly) lighter reading fare. In fact, these suggestions are so light you won’t even have to pick them up!
What I have in mind are e-audiobooks. What could be better for long car trips to vacation destinations or even short hops between work and home? With your MyTyler log-in and password you can choose from over 1,000 e-audiobook titles as well as music and videos. Your log-in will allow you to check-out up to 4 titles at a time for either a 7 or 14 day check-out period.
Overdrive has recently implemented a spiffy new interface which will allow you to browse by genre, new releases or most downloaded. Read-alike titles are featured with every entry—helpful for answering that question: “What do I read now?” You can even listen to a brief sample. By clicking the “bookmark ribbon” you can add titles to your wish list.
Recent additions include:
- My Beloved World by Sonia Sotomayor
- Killing Kennedy: The End of Camelot by Bill O’Reilly
- Home by Toni Morrison
- Fifty Shades of Gray by E. L. James
