Libby question

I downloaded the Libby app. I have a book that Iím first in line for. I gave the app my cell phone number and told it I wanted Kindle format.

How do I get notified? I have moved up in the queue so I know that it is recognizing my holds. I have been set for any day to receive it for over a week.

I am notified by email when books are ready to be checked out by me.

I also get email notifications when a book is automatically checked out to me from a hold.

It's hard to be patient, but when you reach first in line you still have to wait for the person in front of you to return the book. Here that means it can take up to two weeks.

Your email will be coming soon. Enjoy.

What everyone else said. Once you get the email you still need to go on to your libby account and have it sent to your Kindle through Amazon. It will already be checked out to you, but it's not automatically on your Kindle until you put it there.

At least that's how it works for me because I don't leave the Wi-Fi on all the time on my Kindle.

I just downloaded my first book to my kindle. I didnít get an email. I got a notification on my iPad.

So exciting!

My first book is The Rent Collector. I have the next 14 weeks set up with 7 more titles.
