How to Borrow eBooks and Audiobooks From Brooklyn Public Library (US Only)

One of my favorite things about the Fire tablet is the easy access it gives me to library books, all from the comfort of my own home!

Using apps like Overdrive (find it here at Amazon) or Libby (which is owned by Overdrive) - along with your library card - gives you access to all the ebooks and audiobooks available from your local library. 

But what if your library doesn't offer a very wide range of titles? 

Well, there's a solution - and whilst it's not free, it's may be worth it to you if you love to read and want to be able to access the newest and most popular titles.
