My local library system changes how it offers ebooks and what ebooks it offers approximately every five minutes. I see it's not the only one.

I use Overdrive almost exclusively these days. When I first bought my Kindle, I was stuck on free books, some of which were good. The quality of the books I can get from Overdrive is much better. (My library was relatively slow to get Overdrive.)

The library itself doesn't seem to know all the rules and tricks of borrowing books; every time I ask a question, I'm told to just a let a book expire. (Which is a pain--I read 3-5 books/week, so two weeks is a lifetime.) Once I got the hang of returning books through Amazon, I was okay, until I ran into the problem of Overdrive feeling I had returned too many books in too short a period. (That goes away in 24 hours.)

I didn't know you could return books before they expired. Good feature.

The procedure for returning Kindle books is different from other books, and varies from library to library, so I don't blame my library for not knowing, even though it was vexing.
