[BHE 403] The Life Saving Grace Of Overdrive

On reading picturebooks on e-readers.

Myra here.

One of the things that I had to adjust to, living here in the United Arab Emirates, particularly in our small town in Al Ain, is the fact that our libraries are not as well stocked in comparison to what I am used to in Singapore. Hence, for my picturebook fix, I had to rely on my fast-expiring subscription at the National Library Board in my other home which I miss desperately for this very reason. Hence, Overdrive is life-saving indeed.

There was a time when I was convinced that I would never ever read picturebooks in an e-format. Goes to show we should never ever say never.
