What are you hoping for from this book?

Just another good story with a lively discussion with my best book buddies:)

I hopped on to the discussion and just realized that of the many Cussler books I have this is not one. Oh dear! So if I lag behind it would have to do with my non-acquisition of the publication

>3 ColinMichaelFelix: Been there done that. We'll be here whenever you are ready. You can always express opinions to the answers we give if/until you acquire the book. Have you tried Overdrive?

Like Carol, >2 Carol420:, I just want to be entertained and have a good discussion into the bargain.

>4 Carol420: Please enlighten your ignorant friend here, what is Overdrive?

>7 ColinMichaelFelix: Not ignorant...just "uninformed". It 's an online service that many libraries provide for their patrons with active library cards. Log into your library site and it should have a link to check it out. I've used it a few times but I don't really care to sit and read a book on the computer but it serves it's purpose when the physical book is not available. Overdrive doesn't have every book but they do have a fairly good collection.

>8 Carol420: other options are hoopladigital, axis360 and cloudlibrary. All of these allow you to check out the book and download to your ereader (tablet, computer, phone, kindle, nook, etc). I use all of these services but hoopla and overdrive I use the most

>9 bhabeck: All good choices. I also use Hoopla and Overdrive the most.

We don't have Hoopla in the Uk. Options here include Overdrive, Cloud Library, RBDigital and a new one - Libby!

>11 Andrew-theQM: we have Libby too. I think that is a new version of Overdrive but I haven't used it yet. We also have RBDigital. Most of our libraries seem to use Overdrive or Cloud Library. I always download the book to my ereader of choice so that I don't have to read in my browser - like Carol, I don't like reading on the computer

>12 bhabeck: I have a Kindle but do most of my reading on my iPad.

>13 Andrew-theQM: lol. I’m just the opposite. I prefer to read on my Paperwhite rather than my iPad. I read on the iPad if it’s thru cloud library or hoopla since the paperwhite doesn’t do apps but I almost always read books from overdrive on the kindle

I’m looking forward to another great adventure with the crew.

>8 Carol420: Thanks for the enlightenment along with the other contributors, I will definitely look into these avenues. I don't like reading on my computer so it wood be nice if I can download them to either my Voyager or my Fire HDX

>16 ColinMichaelFelix: you can download. In Overdrive - When you check the book out of the library, you'll have an option to either read in your browser or download. Then you select either Kindle book or epub (nook). Once you've selected Kindle, you then go over to Amazon and download the book. The titles you borrow will show up under your "Manage your Devices" listing. I think it's the same way with Libby.

If you use Cloud Library or Hoopla it's a little different as you download directly from that app or you can read in that app on your kindle device. Both of your kindles allow apps so it's easy
