I have a solution for you, but it is not pretty. I have been doing this ever since I switched from my iPhone to the Note 2 last year. Like you, I listen to audiobooks from Overdrive. Overdrive WMA audiobook will actually support iPhone but not Android devices. Here are what you need to have in order to listen to Overdrive Audiobooks on Android.
1) An iDevice (iPhone or iPad or iPod)
2) iTunes installed on your PC
3) Download a program called ifunbox on your PC.
4) Download an app on Note 2 that plays Apple w4b files (I use MortPlayer)
When you use Overdrive Media Console to transfer WMA audiobook to the iPhone, it actually convert the files from WMA to m4b. Once it is on the iPhone, you need to extract them using ifunfox. What you need to do is go into the iTunes control folder and search for m4b. Once you found them, select all and copy them to your PC folder. The file names will look like random characters, but once it is on your PC folder, you can see the audiobook titles and files order in windows file explorer. You then have to rename the file name with order number of the disc. Like ColdDays01.m4b, ColdDays02.m4b, etc...
After that, you could just copy them to your Note 2 and enjoy them using the MortPlayer app. Like I said at the beginning it is not pretty. But it works.
