As previously announced, the USB side-loading requirement for Penguin eBooks on Kindle devices has been lifted. Today, we are pleased to inform our partners and end-users that direct downloads of Penguin eBooks in Kindle format for U.S. library accounts are now standard. This means that these titles will have the same ease of use as all other publishers’ eBooks, without the need for USB loading.

In September, more than 17,000 Penguin Group (USA) titles were added to OverDrive Marketplace for public and college libraries in the U.S. in the one copy/one user lending model for a one-year term. Last month, 15,000 titles from Penguin became available to Canadian public and college libraries.
