Yeah, I know. Just hoping they put it online. If not, no big deal.

From the overdrive app, I click on "get books" on my iPod/iPad/Nexus7, check out the kindle books, click on download now/ get now, or whatever the button next to it says, then a new amazon.com tab opens in my browser, and from there I select which device to send the book to. I usually send my books to my PW, but also sometimes to my iPod (to be read through the kindle app) in case if I have to stand in line anywhere. Very seldomly, I have to connect my device to my laptop to transfer kindle books, when required by the publishers.

How do you get your OverDrive app to show Kindle books? My app only shows EPUB and MP3.

Sears online BF is now live.

Some of the stores are doing different times for different in-store deals and it looks like some of the online deals will follow the same format. So check the websites to see when the various deals go live.

I'm going to get a Clip Zip for sure--maybe two, depending on color availability--and two 32gb cards, all at BB.

I use the Fairfax, Brooklyn and Ocean State libraries. I can borrow them, by going to the site or using the Get Books function of the app, but I read them in the Kindle app - they won't show in my Overdrive library, only on the library websites under checked items.

Yes Gingerbread is older but I prefer it to the newer Android. My Kindle Fire is 2.3 as well.
Ok Blossom, get ready to be bombarded with questions from me also - I just purchased the Samsung Galaxy Player (and this cover). This will be my first Android device - so excited

So, one down, three to go, though I'm now thinking of getting two 32GB microSD cards, instead of one. I can use one for the Clip Zip (for primarily audiobooks and podcasts) and one for the SGP5 (for primarily music).

One problem with the online Sears store is that they allow you to complete orders for items which are out of stock and can't be refreshed until after your order is canceled. That was true last year, at least, when I tried to buy three items -- twice over the course of two weeks just to be certain, and all three continued to be listed as in stock despite emails back and forth -- during our last Black Friday. I won't be buying from them again unless I'm in a physical store or until people report that their online updating and ordering has improved.

I don't see Kindle books in the OverDrive app, because it does not support Kindle.

I have no problem seeing Kindle books on my library's website.

That definitely sucks! I haven't shopped at Sears (in-store or online) in umpteen years.

I'll be happy to answer any question you or anyone may have. I love Android! There is like an app for everything. You might want this to store the Player in. I got it for $5 but it's gone up a bit which is weird you would think with the sales it would go down. It a nice faux leather feel. Very stiff but padded. I have no problem putting this in my purse. It will only fit with the TPU Skin on though. It wont slip out. It's a nice tight fit. The screen is well protected with this that I haven't put a screen protector on yet.

BTW....


Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
