OverDrive Adds Penguin Ebooks to Offerings

OverDrive Marketplace is once again offering Penguin ebooks: More than 17,000 titles are now available for purchase in a one-copy/one-user lending model for a 1-year term. Prices for backlist titles range from $5.99 to $9.99, while frontlist titles cost as much as $18.99.

Penguin Group (now Penguin Random House) pulled its ebooks from the OverDrive catalog about 2 years ago, according to a post at Digital Book World. There are some restrictions to the new agreement: The ebooks are only available in the U.S. now, and Kindle users will have to load ebooks onto their devices via USB; there isn’t a direct download.

OverDrive collection development specialists are available to help member libraries create recommended lists from the Penguin catalog.
