Summary List Placement
Like many people, I spent a lot of the past year reading and listening to audiobooks (and, yes, MasterClasses as their own de facto podcasts). Especially with audiobooks, I feel like I’m getting away with something every time I turn activities I love to do (like laying in the park or taking a long bike ride) and activities I have to do (folding laundry, doing the dishes) into infinitely more enjoyable versions of themselves. Plus, I still feel like I’m growing — and escaping the daily grind — without needing to sit still or pay as much attention.
Recently, I’ve been using Libby, a free app that lets you borrow ebooks and audiobooks from your local library, to plan out my next 10 reads. If you’re an avid reader, it can help you save some extra money for a vacation or other worthwhile investment.
App for e-books and audiobooks (medium)
For example, the last time I bought books, I spent $50 on three paperbacks. I still buy books from local bookstores, but Libby has spared me storage space and money on titles I don’t feel passionate about owning physical copies of. I’m saving a decent amount just by borrowing library books on my phone, and the experience has barely changed from reading app memberships I’ve paid for.
Read on to learn more about the Libby app, including my personal review and some answers to frequently asked questions.
What is Libby?
Libby is a free app that lets you connect to your local library and borrow ebooks and audiobooks for free. All you need is a library card, which you can potentially sign up for in the app, depending on the library.
How do you use Libby?
Simply download the app on your phone, Kindle, or another digital device. Follow the prompts to enter your library card information or apply for one through Libby.
Once you’re all signed up, you’ll be able to search for titles at your local library, place holds on them, or hop on waiting lists.
Which books are on Libby?
You’ll find recent releases that are at the top of the NYT bestseller list such as “The Four Winds” by Kristin Hannah and other cult favorites like “Atomic Habits.” And, of course, there are plenty of classics.
How does Libby compare to other reading apps?
Pros: I’ve found Libby’s book selection to be great in both quality and quantity. You can also do most of the things other apps offer, like downloading for offline reading, changing playback speed, adding bookmarks, putting on a sleep timer, and syncing with other devices so you don’t lose your spot — all completely for free.
I also loved that you can place up to 10 book reservations at a …read more
