Kaye Pretty funny 😁 Knowing what they say about his lack of interest in reading, I doubt a book club would be anything he‘d take part in. Someone might even have to point out to him that he‘s holding the book upside down. 2y

Has anyone tried the Libby app? I'm assuming it's considered the new and improved Overdrive.. Although I don't know why they created a whole new app, instead of just fixing the old one lol But honestly it's really nice! It loads so much faster and it looks so much better. Plus it combines your library loans into one shelf.

Cinfhen Haven't seen it, but I'm scared to mess with my OverDrive app 3y
Nicohlay @Cinfhen Omgosh whyy. Overdrive is amazing! I use mine all the time 3y
Cinfhen No! I use mine all the time to...I'm afraid to try something new, don't want to mess a good thing 😊 3y

CocoReads Just downloaded. I deleted overdrive from my phone because I couldn't get it to sync with overdrive on my nook so I've been using hoopla a lot but the variety of ebooks is limited there (and not organized at all imo) so this may work better. 3y
Nicohlay @Cinfhen ohhh I misunderstood lol well good thing about Libby is that it's a separate app from the original Overdrive app. It's made by the same people (company?) but downloading it won't mess up any settings you have with the other, so if you don't like it you can just uninstall and you won't lose anything from Overdrive 3y
Nicohlay @CocoReads I can't get my Overdrive to sync with my Samsung tablet either when it comes to ebooks. I had to start sending everything through Kindle and that's a pain. I haven't read anything from Libby yet so I'm not sure how it will do with syncing 3y
CocoReads I think I'm just going to use it on my phone for now. I'll see how that goes and then go from there.😄 3y
Cinfhen Thanks for letting me know! Maybe I'll give it a go🤓 3y
Lindy Thanks for the info. I just checked and my library hasn't yet been updated to the new overdrive app. I look forward to the change, because even though I use the old app all the time, it's confusing to explain to my friends who need help with it. 3y
BibliophileMomma I downloaded it today. It's basically a better version of overdrive. Everything you have on overdrive carries over to the new app. @Cinfhen @Nicohlay 3y

So I posted before that I had discovered that TuneIn Radio had audiobooks and it got me thinking of other music apps that might.. Well I checked my Spotify and whadya know!

Cinfhen Cool, thanks for sharing!!! 3y
Spiderfelt Can you imagine the head-scratching if you accidentally hit shuffle? And how would the "radio" feature work? Have you listened to any of these tracks? I wonder whether they are complete books, or just a few chapters? 3y
ReadingEnvy If you subscribe to Audible it has channels with audiobooks too. I think they are Prime related but I'm unlikely to listen to them as they have to stream and when I listen I'm moving between networks, etc. 3y

Nicohlay @Spiderfelt nope haven't tried it yet, just thought it was a neat feature that I didn't know about before. 3y
Nicohlay @ReadingEnvy Audible is too expensive for my taste, especially since you only get 1 book a month lol I like looking for cheaper (meaning free lol) alternatives. 3y
Spiderfelt Clicking on a couple tracks led me to further exploration. It was quite a deep rabbit hole. I found SLATE hosts a 'bookclub' with book reviews, and there are lots additional audiobooks if you know how to find them. Searching 'audiobook' doesn't always bring it up, but now I have something else to explore. Thanks for the heads up. 3y

While I found alot of this fascinating, and i apparently have enough of a morbid personality to not be grossed out by details of dead people.. I just couldn't stomach any more stories about animal test subjects. I can't fault the author for simply writing about the research she discovered but I just really wish there had been a warning that indicated there was animal cruelty (in the name of science or not).

DGRachel Thanks for the warning! I think this is the first review I've seen that mentioned animal testing. 😢 3y
Nicohlay @DGRachel oh yeah there's alot of mention of it. Even though, in the back of my mind, I know it happens (even still in 2017 unfortunately 😢) I really hated hearing details about it. When I grabbed this book I thought it was all about HUMAN cadavers, which oddly enough I'm okay with. Lol 😕 3y

Wow!! Fantastic book! This was very straightforward and intense and OMG the ending!! I was really not expecting it to turn out the way it did!
May not suitable for those that have issues with/sensitivity to subjects of rape as well as animal cruelty. (I could have definitely done without the animal cruelty parts of the book.) But other than that I consider it a must read!

The Female of the Species | Mindy McGinnis

I'm really getting hooked on this book but I'm not sure how they considered it to be YA.... There's alot of sexual content and I'm not even that far into it. Lol

Lindy Sounds like it's at the older end of the YA spectrum, where content can get grittier and more sexually explicit. 3y
Nicohlay @Lindy I agree. I've never really figured out the age range of the YA genre (considering I'm 30 and still reading it lol) but this book is definitely very.... Blunt? at certain points, and pretty intense overall. I wouldn't recommend it for the younger spectrum 3y
Lindy @Nicohlay YA was my area of expertise before I retired from the library and I agree that the concept is a slippery one. 12-17 years is more or less the target age range but good books are appreciated by readers of all ages. 3y
TrishB For a couple of years I used to read them all before my daughter just in case! She's 15 now so I let her get on with them now! 3y

Just finished this one and I know this makes me a weirdo, but I really dig these kinds of things. Im one of those people that watch the Investigation Discovery channel alot lol I don't know why but learning about the minds of serial killers, their motives, their ability to influence others.. It's just bizarrely fascinating. I got hooked on it in my Psychology classes in college.
SO.. I was wondering if anyone had suggestions for similar stories?

RiotMom Have you read The Stranger Beside Me? The author, Ann Rule, was coworkers with Ted Bundy. It's pretty awesome. (edited) 3y

CocoReads All of Ann Rules true crime books are worth reading. I know there are others but hers are my favorites 3y

Since I looooooved Illuminae and Gemina so much I decided to look into other books by Amie Kaufman. I just finished the first of the Starbound Trilogy and I'd say it was a pick.

So I finally finished this one and I feel like it has taken me forever! I'm honestly not sure how I feel about it though. I enjoyed the writing, and of course we all know the Holocaust is gut wrenching and tragic.. But it wasn't anything at all like the first book and I just didn't feel any "connection" with the characters. I guess I'd give it a 3.5? 4? Idk?!
