Check Out a Book
From the My Titles screen, tap Search at the bottom of the app. This opens the OneClickdigital site inside the app, and you have access to all search & browse options. Here's what we like to do to find books that are available right now:
Click on the 3-line button on the far left, under OneClickdigital logo (Browse).
Choose Advanced Search. This pulls up a screen with multiple boxes:
All Availability - make this Available.
All Genre - can pick a subject (mystery, biography, etc) to narrow down the type of book you prefer.
Tap Search, and you will see all available books in the genre you chose. Tap the "sort by" at the upper left side to sort to "date added" for newest available.
Once you've found a book, tap on it. Use the Checkout Now button (if doing a general search & all copies are in use, the button is Hold).
Tap My Titles in the upper left corner to return to the main screen of the app.
Your new checkout should show. If it does not, refresh the app by tapping the round button with two arrows at the top left corner of My Titles.

A screen with the book's cover appears. If the book had not downloaded yet, the first part of the book will need to load (the rest of the book downloads in the background as you listen).
