OverDrive Media Console app for iOS now features free e-book downloads

OverDrive, a digital media company that specializes in digital content distribution, has recently announced an update to its Media Console for iOS. As well as giving you access to audiobooks from something like 13,000 libraries and educational institutions the world o'er, the new app offers -- wait for it -- free e-book downloads! Free app, free e-books (as long as you have a library card, of course), and access to the world's great literature: it doesn't get much better than that, does it? Hit the source link to try it for yourself. We suggest that you start with Under The Volcano -- we always thought you looked drank like a young Malcolm Lowry.
