I just love the digital library that I have been working with the past couple of weeks. With a library card, I can download library books and read them on my nook FOR FREE. It's so easy and so wonderful.
I downloaded Adobe Digital Editions to my computer. I pick the books I want and it downloads them to the adobe editions. I then plug the usb cord for my nook into the computer. Up pops the nook within the adobe editions application. I then drag the books from the adobe editions library tab to the nook tab in the same application. Voila it is done! I can read for 14 days.
I just figured out that I can return the books as soon as I am done with them. I just go into the adobe digital editions library, select the tab button that says borrowed and then click on the arrow for each book and click return. This way I can hopefully get the book into the next person waiting to read the book.
I can have up to six books on hold. I have filled that up very fast. It tells where I am in line which is good because I know how long I have to wait and bad because I know how long I will have to wait. (lol) They simply email me when my book is ready for checkout. I can check out up to 10 books at once, though I keep it closer to 8 since I want the books I have on hold to be available when ready, just in case.
I have been filling up my wish list too. This helps me for when I want to check out a book, I can go directly there and see all the wonderful books I am interested in.
I love that using a PDF book I can still use the dictionary, notes and tab functions (this deletes once the book is sent back) while the EPub books I cannot, but they are still readable.
The only concern I have is that the selection isn't what I wish it was, but between the digital library, borrowing hard bound books from work and then buying what's left, I am in good shape for reading.
