    My library uses Overdrive with Adobe DRM for their ebooks. I am not currently interested in owning a book; I just want to download it to my Ipad and read it and then let it be returned. Since Adobe uses Flash to encode the book, it looks like it won't work on the Ipad right now. Until Adobe comes up with an app, is there a workaround?

    No workaround but there are plenty of DRM-free ePub books on the net.(legal of course :))

    The post is coming from inside the house!
    There's some discussion in this thread that might be relevant to your question: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=880390

    But the basic idea is that if the library books carry some form of DRM that is unsupported by iPad, they likely won't work (yet).
