Adding eBooks to the Nook Classic/Glowlight from Overdrive on Windows To begin, visit the Newport Beach Public Library website at www.newportbeachlibrary.org. Move your mouse cursor to the eBranch tab and click on the eBooks link from the drop down menu. To check out books from Overdrive, click in the blue Overdrive button on the page. Setting Up Adobe Digital Editions Before checking out eBooks from Overdrive, it is recommended that you have Adobe Digital Editions installed and authorized on your computer. To do this, download the software (for free) from http://www.adobe.com/products/digital-editions/download.html. Be sure to click the WINDOWS download option. Download and install Adobe Digital Editions. If you already have an older version of the software, you will have the opportunity to transfer previously downloaded titles to the new version. Once Adobe Digital Editions has been installed, the program will launch. To authorize your computer to receive eBooks, click Help from the toolbar and select Authorize Computer. You may get a notice saying that your computer is not authorized. If so, click the Continue button. You will reach a screen asking you to sign in with an Adobe ID. If you already have an Adobe ID, put in your information and click Authorize. If you do not have an Adobe ID, click the Create an Adobe ID link. You’ll be taken to Adobe’s website to make one. Just supply a current, valid email address and password along with your full name. Write down your password! If you forget it, you will need to go through Adobe to reset it. When finished, type your Adobe ID into Adobe Digital Editions and click Authorize. Your computer is now ready to receive eBooks! Transferring eBooks To Your Nook Search for and check out a book from Overdrive. For more information on this process, please visit http://newportbeachlibrary.org/sites/review.nbpl.org/files/Searching%20Overdrive_0.pdf IMPORTANT!! To read Overdrive books on your Nook, you MUST select the Adobe EPUB format when checking out. Check out an EPUB title. When prompted to Save or Open the file (with Adobe Digital Editions), choose Open and the software will take over and authorize it before opening. To transfer the book to your device, plug the Nook into your PC or laptop using the packaged USB cable. Once connected, Adobe Digital Editions should recognize it and prompt you for authorization. If the program does not recognize your device, unplug your device, close the program, open the program again and plug in your device. Your Nook will appear under Devices. Click the small gear icon to bring up a menu. Click Authorize Device. In the popup menu, verify that the Adobe ID is yours. Click Authorize. Your Nook is now authorized to read EPUB files from Overdrive! Right click the title you want to put on your Nook. Select Copy to Computer/Device and find your device (it may be listed as “nook” or “Nook”). Wait a moment for the file to copy. When done, disconnect your device. From the Nook itself, go to your Library and your transferred books will be waiting to be read. Adding MP3 audiobooks from Overdrive to the Nook Note: Audiobooks cannot be played on the Nook Glowlight and Simple Touch The process of adding MP3 audio books to your Nook is similar to transferring them to an MP3 player. Note: You must have OverDrive Media Console installed on your computer, which can be downloaded for free from http://omc.overdrive.com/. After downloading the audiobook from Overdrive, double click the file. If the Overdrive Media Console has been installed, it will take over and guide you through the process. In order to transfer the audio book to your Nook, you will first need to download at least one part of the book. Overdrive will, by default, select all parts of the book for you. You can track the progress of your download by looking at the bottom of the Overdrive Media Console window. Once the download has been completed, connect your Nook to the computer. Click the TRANSFER button on the upper section of the Overdrive program window (it is found next to the PLAY button). Overdrive will automatically detect your device, so all you have to do is hit the "Next" button until OverDrive initiates the transfer. Once the transfer is complete, disconnect your Nook from the computer.
