Uh oh. Miguel@OverDrive is going to have to sift through the Kindle vs. epub convo (fascinating as it is ).

Time to get back to the NextGen redesign crisis...er, problems?

The point I am trying to make is that your suggestion is based on what you personally need, completely disregarding all patrons (and tax payers) with kindle devices.

It is like me suggesting to stop offering Mystery novels, which I don't read, so that more Fantasy novels can be purchased. Or like me suggesting to stop offering ePub, because I have a Kindle.

Maybe I can send Overdrive a list of books I already read, so they can discontinue them and purchase the books on my extended Amazon wishlist instead.
There is a solution. Get Amazon to give Overdrive a DRM server and the eBooks and then it can be done to the letter of the way it should be (served by servers from overdrive and not a third party).

Now when you click on new ebooks at READS you are taken to Available Now and it's sorts by Most popular again.

At FLP takes you to Available Now and sorts by Release Date.

Brooklyn when clicking New ebooks it takes you to Library Collection but it now sorts by Release Date.

How hard is it that they can't keep this fixed?

When you click on the New eBooks link it should show Library Collection and sort by Added to Site. It's not a hard thing to fix is it?

I am convinced that people who work on the Overdrive sites can't leave things alone. They keep breaking things!

I really can't even search like I use to, I have 3 libraries and feel like I am learning from scratch each time I sign on.

Also, Brooklyn no longer remembers log-in credentials, no matter that I have "remember me" checked.
Neither does Ocean State.

^ ^ ^ That's odd. Brooklyn remembers me on my Windows 8 machine, but not on my Windows 7 desktop. Same browser on each.

Funny thing is, you never had to actually hook up with a USB cable.

JSWolf - I think the above info is what you are looking for. This is copied from DianNC's post #95 on 12/11/2012.

I tried this a while back when my Sony reader was mistakenly trying to pull up the full site and I needed the mobile site. I use the NC library, so the first part of the URL was different, but the numbers near the end were the same for the NC site as for the Brooklyn site.

The numbers to change are the ones near the end, bolded in DianNC's post - 40/20 vs 10/50
Just note, when I tried this for Maryland's mobile site, it redirected me back to the non-mobile site.

The way Kindle eBooks work, they are served via Amazon's servers. Penguin didn't like that and left. If we remove Kindle eBooks until Amazon can give Overdrive a DRM server, then maybe we'll get Penguin eBooks back. Of course, if that was to happen, there's be no whispersync or keeping of highlights/notes. But then, that was never supposed to happen.

But to be totally honest, I'd rather have Penguin eBooks back at Overdrive then Kindle eBooks.
I've seen some new books being offered as epub-only recently. Perhaps Penguin could do that, but leave the Kindle users the rest of the books?

Security is an excuse; this is about control, specifically Penguin not wanting Amazon to control this, because Amazon is a competitor.

I did a cursory check at my library and the first dozen or so e-pub only titles were from publishers other than Penguin, so it's not just them.
