Overdrive to Provide Audio Compatibility with iPod

image You’ll soon be able to access the audio book catalogs of top publishers via Overdrive simply by upgrading to the latest software.  Publishers include Random House, Penguin Audio, BBC Audiobooks, Tantor Media and others.

In June, when users upgrade to version 3.2 of the Overdrive software on Windows PCs, they’ll be able to start easily transffering their books to their iPod, other Apple devices, Microsoft Zune and other PMPs.

"iPod-compatibility instantly adds value to digital media catalogs powered by OverDrive and further expands the collection to the millions of iPod owners eager to download from the library," said David Burleigh, director of marketing for OverDrive. "A simple software upgrade is all it takes to allow the transfer of thousands of additional bestsellers to the popular media player."


If you enjoy reading books by listening to them, keep an eye out for the latest software from Overdrive sometime in the middle of June.
