Kindle is here! As of this morning, you can now checkout and download 5400 of our eBooks to the Kindle!
I will have more information on using the Kindle with the service soon!
Our vendor recently changed how they handle eBooks. Now, instead of selecting a format (Kindle, EPUB, PDF) I just select an eBook and it will be available to check out in every format that is listed for that title in their catalog.
So say I select the eBook version of the new James Patterson novel. After we purchase the title as an eBook, it could be available in both Kindle and EPUB formats with just the one purchase. It all would depend what they are allowed to sell the title as. This is great as now we do not have to choose to purchase it for the Nook and not the Kindle! We just purchase it!
We are happy that Kindles are compatible as well. If you have a Kindle with Wi-Fi (not the 3G wireless) it is very easy to checkout and download titles!
Our Kindle support page should answer any questions that you have!
Enjoy the system!
