OverDrive Read allows you to take notes and highlight sections of text in an eBook. That way, you can go back to your favorite sections or jot down your thoughts on a particularly moving passage.
If you make notes and highlights when you're reading offline, they should save and sync once you connect to the internet again on that device.
Here's how it works:
Click or tap and hold a word until the highlighter pops up. Drag the cursor to select more than just one word.
Then, you can:
- Click or tap Define to look up the highlighted word in the dictionary. In this panel, you can also choose to look up the word or phrase on overdrive.com, Wikipedia, Google, or Google Translate.
- Click or tap Search to find other places where the word (or phrase) appears in the book.
- Click or tap Highlight to see highlighter and note-taking options. Choose between three highlighter colors and, optionally, select Note to write something about the passage.
Where to find bookmarks, highlighted passages, and notes
Bookmarks, highlighted passages, and notes are saved in the Bookmarks section of the menu. From there, you can select a bookmark, highlight, or note to open that page of the eBook.
Note: To open the menu on a mobile device, tap the middle of the screen first, then tap the menu icon.
Slide or click-and-drag from right to left on an entry to reveal the Remove button for it.
