Penguin, Kindle app users and Overdrive

February 15th, 2012 · 1 Comment


Penguin will no longer offer additional copies of eBooks and download audiobooks for library purchase. Additionally, Penguin eBooks loaned for reading on Kindle devices will need to be downloaded to a computer, then transferred to the device over USB. For library patrons, this means Penguin eBooks will no longer be available for over-the-air delivery to Kindle devices or to Kindle apps.

We know that several readers have been waiting for their Kindle book to become available for weeks.  If you are a Kindle app only user and have a book on hold, please contact us  with you library card number and the title of the book.  We are working with Overdrive to find a solution to this problem.

    Thank you for reporting this. We are currently researching this with Amazon.
