This might get interesting - Library eBook

First off I have to state that I've had my nook since 1/26 and had zero problems.  No freezes, books loaded fine, sideloaded, got the 1.2 update, reading more than I have in years.

 

One of the main reason's I wanted a nook was so I could checkout ADE books from my local library system that has an extensive collection and adds new titles regularly.  So last night I was happily reading an ADE book and I happened to jump to the settings pages to check something.  When I pressed Reading Now to get back to the book I get this message something like "You no longer have rights to open this digital title" (or something close to that).   Hmmm....    So I tried a few more times and realized that the library "checkout" time must have expired.  I went on-line and sure enough I had checked the book out precisely 14 days before to the minute.  Lesson number one - need to keep a closer eye on those dates, can't just turn something in overdue!  :smileyhappy:

 

So far the Library eBook experience has been great so we'll see how well the tech handles this situation.  The eBook I was reading wasn't available because someone else had a hold on it.  I put my own hold so in a few days/weeks I will get a notice that it is available.  I will then be able to re-download the eBook into ADE and then over to the nook.  I plan on removing the expired eBook from the nook and ADE on my desktop before re-downloading the eBook.

 

I fully expect the process to work as designed - it will be interesting.

That is what I do like about ADE, it clearly displays how many days are left on my checkout of the book, good luck, I think everything will work fine when you re-check out the book.

When you checked out the book, how did you get it on your nook?  I would love to do that! :smileyhappy:

There is a section on this in the manual.  Its in My Documents.

See page 132 here: http://images.barnesandnoble.com/pimages/nook/download/User_Guide_nook.pdf

 

The Adobe Digital Editions applications is a free download.

Adobe Digital Editions is the standard method I believe, the library website should also have instructions on how to download the e-books, mine even had a section for the Nook.  Reading library books has been awesome, I tend to read them faster since I know they won't be there after 21 days (or however long your library checkout period is). Happy reading :smileyhappy:
