First you'll need to download the software - don't worry it's easy! Then you can make your selections from all the titles available for you to download - you'll need to enter in the numbers from the back of your library card before you can download them.

I used this a few weeks ago when I was ill and I was bored of being at home. I found it very easy to use and enjoyed the titles I dowloaded - mainly "library world" titles.

In 1982, 16 year old Marina Nemat was arrested, tortured and sentenced to death for political crimes. One of the guards fell in love with her eventually made her convert to the Islam faith and marry him in order to save her life. Part of the book tells of her life before the 2 years in prison.

If you're like me you hear a catchy song in a commercial or in a movie and it sticks with you and each time you hear that commercial, you find yourself saying, "That's the song!" and asking your spouse if he knows the name of it. Well, my husband should be pleased that I finally remembered the name of the song & artist of the "1,2,3,4" song from an iPod commercial. I finally got it checked out and have been listening to it on my commute & I am really enjoying a few songs on it.

A reviewer from All Music Guide described The Reminder as:
