    (Disclosure: I work for OverDrive) Great Article. I do want to clarify one point though- You state that Kindle Unlimited joins a crowded group including OverDrive, Oyster and Scribd. OverDrive is actually a service of the library. Where KU, Oyster and Scribd are drawing users away from the library, you must have a library card to use OverDrive which means anyone interested in using the service is supporting and helping the library thrive, not eliminating it from their reading experience.
