How to make Kindle your reading preference on your library's OverDrive website or in the OverDrive app

If you only want to see the Kindle Book format for borrowed ebooks, you can set a preference on your library's OverDrive website or in the OverDrive app.

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.

On your library's OverDrive website

  1. In your library's digital collection, click or tap books icon, then select Settings.
    You'll need to be signed into your library to get to this page.
  2. Under "Content preferences," select Kindle preference. Your setting will be saved automatically.
