17,000 Penguin eBooks Now Available to US School Libraries via OverDrive

OverDrive17,000 Penguin eBooks Now Available to US School Libraries via OverDrive Overdrive expanded their catalog late last week with titles from Penguin. Teachers and school librarians now have access to 17,000 titles from Penguin - their full catalog of best selling and classic titles, previously offered only to public libraries.

Just over a month ago OverDrive announced a similar deal with Macmillan which involved 12,000 titles, and like that deal Penguin titles are offered on a one user at a time license which expires after a year. OverDrive hasn't revealed the cost, but they can confirm that the catalog includes works from beloved authors including Judy Blume, Roald Dahl, John Green, Holly Goldberg Sloan and many others.

Must-have titles include James and the Giant Peach, Superfudge, Counting by 7s, Grapes of Wrath, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, the Matched Trilogy, The Secret Life of Bees, The Kite Runner, Of Mice and Men, and many, many more.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
