In this tutorial I will show you how you can easily borrow one of the over 39,000 kindle books that the San Francisco public library has to borrow. No late fees and you can finish a book at midnight and be reading the next one by 12:05.

If you don't know already, among the books available are many books for Makers. If you want help with an arduino project but don't want to buy the whole book, or need some inspiration for your next woodworking project this might be the way to go!

And, the books automatically return so there are never any late fees!

    Just a suggestion, but you should change the instructable to "How to borrow kindle books from your local public library" and then add a step to check with your local library website to see if they participate with Overdrive. Then just say you are using the SF public library as an example in the steps that follow. The reason I say this is that I borrow from my hometown library and one in a neighboring city here in Southern California and the process is exactly the same.
