Pick of the Week

Looking for an entertaining read this weekend? Then might we suggest:

by Nia Vardalos
Writer and star of My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Nia Vardalos firmly believed she was supposed to be a mom, but Mother Nature and modern medicine had put her in a headlock. So she made a choice that shocked friends, family, and even herself: with only fourteen hours' notice, she adopted a preschooler. Instant Mom is Vardalos's poignant and hilarious true chronicle of trying to become a mother while fielding nosy "frenemies" and Hollywood reporters asking, "Any baby news?" With genuine and frank honesty, she describes how she and husband Ian Gomez eventually found their daughter... and what happened next. Vardalos candidly shares her instant motherhood story that is relatable for all new moms (and dads!)

Notice for OverDrive Media Console (OMC) users upgrading to iOS 7

If you use OverDrive Media Console (OMC) for eBooks or audiobooks, you may have upgraded your Apple device(s) or plan to upgrade to iOS 7 in the near future.

When an existing OverDrive Media Console (OMC) user upgrades to iOS 7, the app will fail when trying to open a DRM-protected eBook. New or first time users of OMC are unaffected by this issue.

OverDrive is working to resolve the issue but suggests the following immediate remedies for users:
1) Re-authenticate the app with your existing or a new Adobe ID. Refer to the iOS section of this Help article for assistance. (Recommended)
2) Uninstall and re-install OMC which will also require you to re-authorize with Adobe. IMPORTANT NOTE: A re-install will clear your bookshelf, history, and app settings.

Audiobook users won't notice that anything is different unless you attempt to download parts of audiobooks you already downloaded to OMC before upgrading to iOS 7. You will receive an error message informing you to download the title again.

If you have any questions, please e-mail ask@pamunkeylibrary.org
