B&N “nook” Compatible with KDL eBooks

Have you been drooling over the nook eReader recently announced by Barnes & Noble? Well, here’s one more reason to add the device to your Christmas list: OverDrive, one of KDL’s eBook services, has recently announced that the nook is compatible with both Adobe EPUB and PDF eBooks downloaded from the library. Both eBook formats can be easily transferred to the device using free Adobe Digital Editions software.

Can’t wait 6 weeks for the out-of-stock nook? (Barnes & Noble is estimating a current ship date of February 1.) OverDrive eBooks from the library can also be read on Sony Reader devices, which come in a variety of colors and styles (don’t worry — they aren’t all pink 🙂 ).

Wondering about the Amazon Kindle? Unfortunately, due to its proprietary file format, the Kindle is not compatible with library eBooks.

Don’t have an eReader device? Don’t worry — eBooks can be read right on your computer as long as you download the free Adobe Digital Editions software.
