Booki.sh Goes Into OverDrive
by Dan Tonkery
The little startup from Melbourne, Australia, Booki.sh is joining the rapidly growing Cleveland-based OverDrive, the leading distributor of ebooks and digital audiobooks to libraries. While they are separated by some 10,000 miles, the two companies are in sync in terms of developing ebook services for libraries. This acquisition is part of OverDrive's long-term strategy to build a range of services for libraries. Since 1986, OverDrive has been focused on becoming a leading multichannel distributor of ebooks, digital audiobooks, music, and video.

Some days, I think I've just had enough election news. It's exhausting for a voting individual to examine all the claims and statements made by the candidates. How do we keep up with who said what and check to see if it contradicts their earlier statements or twists the facts/statistics?
