This is one reason I'm considering the Nook for my Christmas gift this year. Nook is linked with e-lending in public libraries (5 local libraries in my area are on this program, as well as 3 university libraries). And the downloads are FREE!!!Originally Posted by Gutmutter;4120878;
They *poof* after two weeks. So, you need to finish your "borrowed" book in 2 weeks or download it again.
ETA: you can visit overdrive.com to see which libraries in your area particiate in e-lending, and view the books available. You can also download MP3 audio books. You need to download some free Adobe software to your PC or laptop to download:
You can use all ePub and PDF books from Overdrive. You will need to install Adobe Digital Editions on your computer, and use it to download the books. (When you install it, it associated with the ".acsm" file type, so when you click on "Download" on their site it automatically launches ADE and downloads the book.) Then plug in your nook, tell ADE to "authorize" it (the first time), and drag the book cover onto the nook (shown on the lefthand side). After you "eject" the nook, the book should appear under "My Documents".
Lest you think this is hard, please know that my 9 year old niece demonstrated this for me.
