OverDrive Read is a browser-based eBook reader that works on most tablets, phones, and computers running web browsers with HTML5 support.
If you are not sure whether or not your device is supported, you can test it using the sample below. Just click or tap the jacket image.
For the best reading experience, we recommend using a browser that natively supports the HTML5 and CSS3 features OverDrive Read eBooks require, like one of these:
Internet Explorer 10
Note: If you're using Internet Explorer, you may be prompted with the option to install the free 'Chrome Frame plug-in' or use an alternative browser when opening an eBook. If you prefer, you can also choose to use OverDrive Read Basic, a reduced-feature version of OverDrive Read.
Note: This is not a complete list. If you do not see your device here, you can use this sample of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire to test your browser.
