On the SPL home page, click on the link for E-books & Downloads. Then click on the link for OverDrive digital media on the right side of the screen. From there you can search for a great summer read...I mean, listen.
Not sure what to listen to first? Try looking for one of the books from Gallagher Law Library's Good Reads collection. Good Reads are interesting, compelling books, and include engaging legal fiction.
For example, OverDrive has John Grisham's The Appeal, The Chamber, and The Client---all books found in the Gallagher Good Reads collection.
Or if you're more interested in the classics, you can download and listen to Charles Dickens' Bleak House.
OverDrive also has mystery and police procedural series from dozens of writers. Try searching for Agatha Christie (with detectives Hercule Poirot and Jane Marple), Michael Connelly (with police officer Harry Bosch and defense attorney Mickey Haller), Donna Leon (with Commissario Guido Brunetti) and Elizabeth George (with Inspector Thomas Lynley).
With all of these free and engaging books at your fingertips, why not give one a try the next time you're bemoaning the literary life you once had?
