Kindle eBooks Now Available At Public Libraries


Click = big

And that’s how it works — just as I said it would from the start on May 26!

Here’s Amazon to repeat it:

• Visit the website of a U.S. library that offers digital services from OverDrive.

• Check out a Kindle book (using a valid library card).

• Click on “Get for Kindle” and then sign in to your Amazon.com account to have the book delivered to your Kindle device or reading app.

Everyone was bending my ear on Twitter about ridiculous notions of ePubs being converted. All it’s doing is sending people from OverDrive to Amazon, via validated public library card. And if there’s no Kindle edition available, it won’t even show up on OverDrive as “Get for Kindle.” Which is no different from a print book not being available in ePub.

Everyone who wouldn’t buy a Kindle because ePub had the public library lending option, that objection has now been erased.

Let’s see if Sony and Kobo can survive this move.
