OverDrive Brings Library eBooks to the BB PlayBook

Everyone might expect the PlayBook to be pulled, but it looks like OverDrive doesn’t. They’ve just released a new version of their Media Console app.

With this app you’ll be able to search for and download eBooks and audiobooks from OverDrive’s 18 thousand partner libraries. The OMC app also supports side-loaded Epubs, so you can use this app to read DRM free eBooks purchased elsewhere.

For a tablet that is supposed to be dead, the PlayBook has a surprising number of free reading apps. You can find an app for Wattpad, Adobe Reader, and Kobo, as well as several free ePub readers and apps that support other formats including FB2, txt, and more.
