My library also uses Overdrive and Adobe Digital Editions.  I have a Nook Tablet.  Once you get the hang of it, downloading digital library books is easy.  I can also choose to check out for 7, 14 or 21 days.

RE: Nook & Libraries --

Thank you everybody that responded. ;D

I looked up Mom's library and sent an inquiry to the Librarian. I received quite a lengthy (personal) response explaining all the details (I'll print out the e-mail and give it to Mom along with the gift.)

They are part of a library co-op so there are plenty of books available. They do use Overdrive, and are compatible with Kindle, Nook, even lap-top readers. It sounded like the most difficult part will be the initial set-up/sign-in process and librarian said that if there is any problems at all Mom can just bring her Nook in and they will gladly help her.

So, I think we have a "GO!" for Moms x-mas gift!



Thank you!

I think you still need to add filters for every jack that has a conventional phone plugged in. Or, have the filter put in at the MPE and run a specific unfiltered line to where the DSL modem is plugged in.

I am thoroughly and utterly embarrassed for myself  :-[ :-[ :-[.  I didn't know they still made DSL modems and thought cable ones were the only kind...and I call myself a gamer... ::)

Ahem.  I bought a DSL modem and solved the problem for myself.

Well!  There you go.

Why do some cell phone calls sound like the caller is in the bottom of a barrel?  DH can call me on his cell and the sound is crystal-clear.  When DD#2 calls, there is so much reverb that I have to ask her to repeat the bits that I can't make a reasonable guess at.  She can hear me just fine.

DH and I have two older bottom-of-the-line Motorola flip-phones.  DD has a new top-of-the-line Android.  All of us are on Verizon.  So what gives?  Why does the "better" phone have the worst sound?
