Reading borrowed NLB books on Kindle

Hi guys, I'm new to Kindle.
I have just ordered a Paperwhite during Black Friday sale.

Does anyone know if its possible to read borrowed books from NLB on the Kindle? I know NLB uses Overdrive for its e-books lending.

I searched online but cannot find anything.

Ah ok, so no Kindle Paperwhite doesn't support Overdrive. Cause on Overdrive website, it seems like they do, but they didn't show any screenshot about it

The Kobo Aura One supports Overdrive / NLB directly.

I got mine from the U.S. so it worked out-of-the-box without any modifying.

Anyone bought Kindle Paperwhite sold by Lazada directly before? Not Geekbite or other 3rd party sellers. Was it a US or JP set?

Those with a Kobo aura one, how much did u get it for? Thinking about changing to a Kobo for overdrive and the night time screen which cuts out blue light..
