How to make Kindle your reading preference
If you only want to see the Kindle Book format for borrowed ebooks, you can set a preference in the OverDrive app or on your library's OverDrive website.
Note: Kindle Books are currently available for U.S. libraries only.
Once you set the preference, Read now with Kindle will be the only option for Kindle-compatible ebooks. If a title isn't available as a Kindle Book, you'll see other format options (like EPUB and OverDrive Read).
Note: Read-alongs will still have the Read now in browser option (even if the Kindle Book is available) because narration is only available in OverDrive Read.
In the OverDrive app
Note: You'll need to install the latest version of the app to see this setting.
