Books you can borrow for as long as you want

One of the greatest, and most overlooked, features of OverDrive is the fact that you get to download the classics of world literature on to your smartphone or tablet – and keep them for as long as you like.

Simply log on to the OverDrive site or app, and look for the ‘Additional eBooks‘ button.

Why not download a handful on to your tablet or smartphone today? You’ll never be stuck for something to read and you might actually get round to reading some of those titles you’ve been meaning to for years.

There are thousands of available to choose from, which can be a little overwhelming if we’re honest, so here are twelve suggestions to get you started:

The Confidence Man by Herman Melville

Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad

Emma by Jane Austen

Candide by Voltaire

The Railway Children by Edith Nesbit

The Monk by Matthew Lewis

Don Quixote by Cervantes

Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy

Poems by Emily Dickinson

Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman by Laurence Sterne
