Do you have a library card? If so, you might be able to read my books for FREE.


All of my books are in OverDrive, a library program that provides access to books in many countries. If your library possesses a copy of my book (for example, The Golden Spider), you can check that book out directly onto your reading device and without ever leaving your house.

Unfortunately, I have no control over whether or not your library stocks them. If they don’t, I have this handy printout that you can use to request them by speaking with your librarian directly or, as many libraries now have, via an online form. Does your library have OverDrive? Look into it here.

How do you make this modern miracle happen? First, you’ll need a library card. Then, if you don’t already have an account, sign up for OverDrive HERE. They’ll ask you about your preferred genres, let you opt-in for cook recommendations, and then you can search through your library’s offerings to hunt for downloadable ebooks.

You’ll need to find and open your library’s digital collection using one of three methods:

  1. The Libby app – This is the best option for public library users as it lets you borrow a book directly to your reading device.
  2. The Overdrive app – The original app, this is another option if your library isn’t public.
  3. – A way you can read right on your computer.

What do you think? Do you have a library card? Are you already reading on OverDrive? Let me know. I’d love to know how readers are downloading my books.

You can download a handy, printable form listing all my books with their ISBNs right here: LIBRARY AND BOOKSTORE ORDERING.


About Anne

Though USA TODAY bestselling author Anne Renwick holds a Ph.D. in biology and greatly enjoyed tormenting the overburdened undergraduates who were her students, fiction has always been her first love. Today, she writes steampunk romance, placing a new kind of biotech in the hands of mad scientists, proper young ladies and determined villains.

Anne brings an unusual perspective to steampunk. A number of years spent locked inside the bowels of a biological research facility left her permanently altered. In her steampunk world, the Victorian fascination with all things anatomical led to a number of alarming biotechnological advances. Ones that the enemies of Britain would dearly love to possess.

To chat with Anne, stop by on Facebook or join the Department of Cryptobiology Facebook group. You can also join her newsletter list to have cover reveals, sneak peaks, sales and giveaways delivered straight to your inbox.
