I don't see how that can be done without using a browser from somewhere.
Right, but Amazon could streamline the process with direct menu links.

Hmmm, this is interesting. The Seattle Public Library shows 28,973 ebooks in its collection. When you click on the Kindle link, only 22,480 ebooks are available. Does that mean 6,493 ebooks can't be downloaded to the Kindle?
Correct. No Kindle format available at Amazon.

That's much better than the mobipocket ratio. There was only about 1/3 of mobipocket to EPUB. Did you notice that the mobipocket option has disappeared.

Everyone, here's my analysis of the situation:

it's a beta test that covers just the 2 library systems in the Seattle area.

I noticed it. I'm now seeing listings for Kindle, Adobe EPUB, and Adobe PDF.

It works great. Checking out the book on my computer went smooth as usual. Getting that book to my Kindle over WiFi was a breeze and quicker than going through ADE with my former Sony 350. I love not having to use a cable.

Also, I was able to open this book on my Nook Color and my iPod touch, using the Kindle app, without any problems.

What won't work is trying to get a Kindle book through the OverDrive app on my Nook Color or iPod touch. Only EPUB is supported.

It helps having Amazon in your backyard. That's probably why we got first crack at it.

I looked at both of the libraries where I can access Overdrive, but they don't have the Kindle link up yet. I wonder when the rest of the libraries are going to add kindle? I'm so excited that we finally get library access.

Probably after it's Beta. AND, more importantly, when they decide to spend the time and money to do so...and some can't or don't want to.

When who decides to spend the time and money to do so? I'm on our library board and we've been told this will cost nothing additional at the Library level.

It is a change that Overdrive is rolling out .... not the library.
