As of July 2023 this guide—started during the early days of the COVID 19 pandemic—is no longer being actively updated or maintained. Please see OverDrive/Libby at https://umich.overdrive.com/ for featured online book lists, as well as thousands of eBooks and audio books.
Access to the online books listed here is restricted to current students, faculty and staff at the University of Michigan.
New! The U-M Library is piloting OverDrive for access to additional recreational reading eBooks and audiobooks.
(For even more recreational reading options, check the eBook offerings from your local public library. The Ann Arbor, Chelsea, Dexter, Saline and Ypsilanti District Libraries offer eBooks and audiobooks through OverDrive/Libby. Chelsea, Dexter, Saline and Ypsilanti offer Hoopla as well.)
