I'm new here and this may not be the right place to ask, but it is kinda related to this discussion. Feel free to point me in the right direction!

I borrow books from the library and it uses the overdrive website. I do not have a Kindle so I read the books in my browser. Is there a way to get the book into some kind of reader that would be easier to read with. I have a very old Nook...

Thanks for any help.

Welcome to the board

If you're comfortable reading books on LCD/LED displays, then you can download the Libby App to your phone or tablet and read library books on those devices.

Since I only listen to audiobooks, I'll leave your option to read books on dedicated eInk devices (Kindle, Kobo, Nook, etc) for others to explain.

Again, welcome.

Install Adobe Digital Editions (ADE) on your computer and authorize the Nook through the program. When you borrow an overdrive book you should get the option to download the ePub. You will get a link (acsm?) and clicking on that the book downloads to ADE. From there you can transfer it to the Nook.

It sounds more complicated than it actually is!

(If you don't get the ePub option, check your settings and make sure the "Kindle"-box isn't ticked.)

.
What Asawi said about Adobe Digital Editions (ADE).

Some other options depend on what country you live in. For example, if you were considering a new device, Kobos integrate directly with Overdrive, meaning you don't need to use your computer and ADE as intermediaries. But this isn't supported in all countries.

In the early days of borrowing library books through Overdrive-enabled libraries, the Kindle version would sometimes not be available, and I would end up trying to read the book with either the Overdrive or the Libby app. While this was on my Likebook Mars, which is an Android ereader, neither app was satisfactory, and I stopped using either one when I learned that I could just download a file that Adobe Digital Editions could use to retrieve the book, and then I could load the book in calibre, strip the DRM, and read it on my Likebook Mars with the reading app of my choice, which is Moon+ Reader. So, the apps no longer matter to me. I borrow books with my desktop and can read any book I borrow without them.
