Digital books & audio

A library in the palm of your hand

Borrowing e-books and e-audio is similar to borrowing a book from the library. If someone else has it you can reserve it and get your copy when it gets returned. If you haven’t finished it after your loan period you can renew it, and if you finish it early you can return it and get another one. Otherwise it simply vanishes from your device when the borrowing period expires, so there's no need to worry about your items becoming overdue.
