Can I do this with my new iPad?
Most libraries that I am familiar with use a system called OverDrive Media. With OverDrive, you can "check out" audio books in MP3 format which will work on the iPad. If, however, you want an actual book in electronic format, they use Adobe Digital Editions (ADE) which is a Flash-based system and it will not work on an iPad, iPod or iPhone.
The technology exists to "unwrap" the ADEPT (Adobe Digital Experience Protection Technology) from the books which would allow you to read these books using just about any reader, including iBooks, for as long as you want. This may not be exactly "kosher" and you do so at your own risk and it does require some degree of computer literacy.
Thanks 1991 for the info...I do believe my libaray runs on overdrive.
There's a free app for OverDrive with a help menu that opens up
a browser to search for a library near you that supports OverDrive.
If you have a library card there you can search for available books
and when you go to download them it reopens the app to do it.
Then you can use the app to read the book and it keeps track of
your place for you. Really neat!
I just downloaded the app and notice my local library has a ton of audio books. I'll by stopping by tomorrow.
Very cool! I just got it too!
The app is a nice way to bypass the OverDrive Media Console on your computer so you don't have to sync the mp3 through iTunes. But remember, it is just for audio books only, not for eBooks.
Oh shitums. I so missed that part! Lord. I need some wine, man.
