hi everyone the reason I choose kindle is because in my state they have virtual library and nook is not an option for downloading books I have a nook account with many books in it 300+ but I'm currently using kindle for all of my library books :D it's easy to use and easy to return library books :D
My library uses the Libby app. You can choose to read books on Libby, or with Kindle. I always lean towards Kindle because it lets me post my quotes to Goodreads easier. I love using the LIbby app for audiobooks though!

In my library there is a shortage of good books :(
It is nice that you have such a facility. I wish we had something like that here too.
Where are you?

We don't have libraries because nobody reads here, but I can still download the app.

Somehow I don't find the virtual library as satisfying as the real one, although my virtual library is larger than my real one.
A little less than imaginary~

Overdrive is my favorite app to borrow books. I love going to the library with my kids anyway, but Overdrive is so simple to use and I've borrowed several books in the short time I've had it. All you need is a library card.
That sounds interesting. I think I'll have to check that out for myself.

The app I use to borrow library books is called Libby. Ever since I've started using it my reading has increased ten fold. I get to reread old books, I get to place holds on books that are currently unavailable, even extend current holds. Technology is awesome.

I use Kindle for PC and Moon+ in a tablet to read, mainly the latter.

I agree. It’s probably one of my most well used reading apps on my phone and computer. It great to check it out because usually your library will have more variety through the app. If they only have one copy of the book you want, you are able to place yourself on a waitlist for the book and get Notifications when the book becomes available for you to borrow.
