It's been an interesting week for eBook news. It's been an interesting year, actually, but this last week has been especially interesting, in that the issue of whether you own the eBooks you buy or not has been placed front and center.
If you're looking for the short version of this story, the answer is "no." For details, read on...
There was an interesting story about a woman in Norway who had access to her eBooks revoked when her Amazon account was shut down. She had bought a used Kindle from the United Kingdom and transferred her purchases to it. The Kindle developed a problem, and she contacted Amazon to have it replaced, which they agreed to do, as long as the replacement was shipped to the UK.
In the eMedia catalog, after performing a search or choosing a subject, select “Additional titles” to search or browse the complete collection of eBooks and audio eBooks available for the library to purchase. You can recommend up to 30 titles per year for the library to purchase.
If a title is not listed in “Available titles” it is not available in digital format for libraries. When you recommend a title, you’ll be given the option to be placed on the hold list or to be notified that the title was purchased. At this time, we are unable to notify you if a recommendation is not purchased.
Use “Buy it Now” to purchase your own copy of an eBook or audio eBook you’d like to own, or don’t want to wait for. Any purchases made using a Buy it link from Denver Public Library’s eMedia site will support the library.
Borrowing eBooks and audio eBooks from the library just got a whole lot easier for users of the NOOK HD, NOOK HD+, NOOK Tablet and NOOK Color. Last week, Barnes & Noble added the OverDrive Media Console app to the NOOK Apps storefront. This NOOK app enables users to wirelessly borrow eBooks and MP3 audiobooks from the library.
Visit the NOOK Apps storefront to install the free OverDrive Media Console (OMC) app.
