Free Audiobooks And Free Ebooks


Free Audiobooks And Free Ebooks


My holiday gift to my HypoGal readers is a step by step guide on how to find Free Audiobooks And Free Ebooks.

The title of this page, Free Audiobooks and Free Ebooks is correct. I have been using the OverDrive App for several months to read Free Audiobooks and Free Ebooks.

I thought a step-by-step guide would make for a terrific post. 

So, it here goes;

The first step is to have a public library card.

A public library card is free.

Your library card will display your library card number.

Below is a photo of the front and back of my Orange County, California library card.

The above Orange County library card offers me the privilege to download endless free audiobooks and ebooks.  I did xxxxx out my library number. 

In order for you to check out library audiobook and ebooks online, you need to set up a pin number for your library card.

Your pin number should be at least four digits. These digits should be easy for you remember.

The next step is to download the Overdrive App. There is a version of the Overdrive App for Mac and Androids.

Open the Overdrive App on your computer or smart device.

How You Use The OverDrive App 

The OverDrive App offers a menu.

Below is a screenshot of my Overdrive App Menu

My Libraries is the first category on the OverDrive App menu.

Under My Libraries, there is a link to add that allows you to add a library.

You click on add your library.

This My Library feature allows you to enter your library card and pin number.

Once you enter your library card information, your library should be listed under, My Library category on the OverDrive App.

Now you should be able to explore, enjoy and check out free audiobooks and free ebooks. 

I use to find the ebooks or audiobooks I would like to enjoy and then find out if they are available. I no longer have to scroll around for product availability. 

The filters within the Orange County, California digital library allow me to quickly find what genres I am interested in enjoying, what ebooks and audiobooks are available for immediate download.

The Orange County, California library filters also offer a full gambit of additional options. You need to take a few minutes and click on the digital library features. 

Once you find the available ebook or audiobook you would like to read or listen to, just click on the product to check out the ebook or audiobook.

After you check out the audiobook or ebook you would like to enjoy just click on the product to download product files. You can download the files to your computer or smart device. 

On a side note, downloading free audiobooks and free ebooks from the OverDrive App is terrific when you are planning to go on vacation. 

My local Orange County, California digital library allows you to check out up to 10 audiobooks and ebooks within a 21 day period.

Returning ebooks and audiobooks to the library is fabulous! You do nothing!

After 21 days your ebook or audiobook will digitally be returned to the library. Yay, OverDrive!

The Overdrive App menu also offers a history of ebooks and audiobook you have checked out.

Below are several screenshots of audiobooks I have checked out from through the OverDrive App.
