Now users of NOOK HD, NOOK HD+, NOOK Tablet and NOOK Color can borrow eBooks and audiobooks wirelessly using the OverDrive app.
Users can visit the NOOK Apps storefront to install the free OverDrive Media Console (OMC) app. The app enables users to locate our library, browse or search their eBook and MP3 audiobook collection and, after entering a valid library card, check out and download the title for a lending period of two weeks. At the end of the lending period, the title simply expires.
The version of OMC available in the NOOK Apps storefront is OMC for Android v2.5, so any instructions found on Help pages related to OMC for Android will apply to the NOOK app. While the app is free, users will need a valid NOOK account in order to download the app.
