How to Check Out Library eBooks on the Sony Reader Wifi

The Kindle isn’t the only e-reader to support downloading library eBooks over Wifi. OverDrive put together this helpful little video to demonstrate how the new Sony Reader Wifi (which was launched last month) downloaded OverDrive library eBooks.

It’s a little different from the Kindle library ebooks; you can check out the ebooks from the Sony Reader Wifi without ever using a computer. I’d also say the complete PC independence is also better, but that’s just me.

But if you prefer the Kindle method, you can actually use it with the Sony Reader Wifi. This eReader was hacked last week, revealing the Android running underneath Sony’s software. The Sony Reader Wifi has been tested with a number of apps, including the Kindle for Android app, which works just fine.
