Yep. It's fixed on the READS site which is the Tennessee's Overdrive Library site. The one site is for the entire state.

1. Request: Return to old Cart system. JD Gumby, Blossom, DianNC
Can I get in on this one too? I use the cart all the time. Shoot, if I'm out in a real store I like to put things in my buggy and roll them around the store before I really buy them. Of course I want to do the same thing at the library!!

Quote:
2. Request: Bring back list view, both when browsing and in the Wish List. 4691mls
3. Request: Include more info on initial displays, perhaps through hover pop-up. 4691mls, Blossom
I'll second, these too!

Quote:
5. Request: Provide option to switch to classic view. xendula, others
That would be the best choice! Have a mobile choice, and a classic choice. I've always thought the library sites were very nice. Guess I'm missing something in why they are being changed. But, I don't have a tablet either. Maybe that makes the difference?
I do appreciate Overdrive actually listening to us though, For many of us libraries are the only way we get audio and ebooks.
Thank you!

I do occasionally visit the Overdrive mobile site via my Sony reader. Last time checked, a few days ago, it had not changed. I hope it won't. I wouldn't want the thumbnail view on the mobile site, either.

A lot of stores allow a choice between thumbnail and list views - it would be nice if Overdrive allowed this choice also.

Technically, the cart is gone, but you can still borrow a book and leave it on your 'Bookshelf'. It won't count against your checkout limit until you download it. Simply click the 'Return' button if you decide it's not something you want to read.

Actually it does take up a slot the minute you hit the borrow button. Your count on the right goes down. It's just you can return it without worrying about ADE lockout if not downloaded.

^^^ And what's even stranger is that when I switched over to the mobile site version and checked my Bookshelf, the new book didn't show up at all and wasn't counted against my checkout limit.

There are obviously quite a few bugs that need to be worked on and I suppose that's to be expected with any new redesign roll-out.

Mike,
Thank you so much for passing our complaints/suggestions on to Overdrive, and als for the work-around to your app (though, ideally, your app would warn me that kindle books are incompatible but still let me check them out).

14. Question: Why are many recent eBooks not available in Kindle format? xendula

Can you provide a specific example? Could be a variety of reasons.
I do not know which publishers are the worst offenders, but below is an excerpt from Brooklyn Library to my inquiry, emphasis mine:

Quote:
Thank you for writing to the Brooklyn Public Library and for sharing your concerns about the decreasing number of new ebook titles being released in the Kindle format on our main ebook site. *This is a concern of ours as well. *We in no way would purposely phase out Kindle content from our ebook collection. *Currently, Overdrive Inc. is the only ebook vendor who provides any popular reading Kindle content to public libraries. *The decision to offer Kindle format to public libraries is one made by each publisher, and we have noticed that some publishers do so on a title by title basis. *As an experiment, I looked in our ebook catalog at all the titles released from one publisher so far this month. *Of the 141 titles, only 8 were offered in Kindle format--quite unsettling.

I can assure you that we will continue to raise this as an issue with Overdrive, publishers, and authors.
Could you please raise this concern with publishers and let them know that they are on notice and will end up losing customers quickly for their inflexibility. I already stopped purchasing Penguin books a year ago, and publishers discriminating against Kindle using patrons will be next on my list. Is there anything else Overdrive can do to help in this respect? And, do you have any metrics of ePub vs. kindle eborrowing when both formats are available? I would be very interested in them.

Thanks again, Mike!

I just check READS and most new titles are available in Kindle. So I wonder why Brooklyn is having that problem.

The Audiobook sort on READS isn't working. I can't figure out what new Audio books were just added tonight.

It's a bit strange and I only noticed it very recently, so it may be a new trend.

I've seen others complaining about it on another forum. You are not alone.

When you browse for the last 10 and 20 added to the Brooklyn site,
0/10 and 7/20 are Kindle in Fantasy & SciFi
4/10 and 9/20 are Kindle in Romance
1/10 and 5/20 are Kindle in all fiction

Another casualty in the war between big publishers and Amazon.

One thing I miss from the old design was the ability to search for "add to cart" on my Wish List. I create a much longer Wish List than I'll probably ever be able to read, figuring that a small percentage of them might actually be available.

Having to scrutinize each book cover for that tiny little gray open book to see if it's available greatly slows down my search.

Maybe you could add "available now" to the Wishlist filters?
