    Default public library ebook downloads

    Hi There

    I am a very new Blackberry user and I am very confused with this whole public library ebook downloads, I have downloaded from my public library there app for blackberry, its called Overdrive, I have then downloaded a book from my library to my Blackberry, I see a message come up asking me to save it, so I do, but I cant seem to now find where it goes????? I have gone back to Overdrive app, nothing there, I have tried files, nothing there, I have tried Adobe Reader, nothing there.....Any suggestions would be very appreciative

    thanks

    Have you installed overdrive from app world on the playbook?
    Then go to adobe and get an adobe ID with the same email address as your playbook BBID
    Use Get Books within the overdrive app to download the book from the library into overdrive.
    You have to search for your branch and put in your library ID.
    You do all the management and reading from within the app.

    Here are some helpful links from overdrive, the screen shots seem to be from phone version but functionality is the same:

    How to authorize OverDrive's mobile app for BlackBerry using an Adobe ID
