Reading History now on your OverDrive site

The Reading History feature is now live on your OverDrive app.

How the History page works:

  • Each time a title is borrowed, it is added to your history. At launch, you will see an empty history until you borrow a title, or manually add it.
  • Titles can be manually added through the context menu (…) or from the title details page. For example, you can add titles you read before the start of the history, or titles read from other sources (print, purchased, etc.).

  • You can remove individual titles from the History page through the context menu (…) or on the title details page.

Remove History

  • You can choose to hide your history from the Settings page. If you opt to display your history again at a later date, you will only see titles added from that point forward.
