    I want to use the Adobe reading app for Overdrive books I get from the library. How can I make it so my screen doesn't shut off while reading (without changing the screen lock time)?

    To adjust the time for your screen to stay on:

    Press the Menu button
    Press Settings
    Select Display
    Select Screen Timeout
    Increase the length of time to the max

    Agree with kate - if the app doesn't have an option for "keep screen on" or "stay awake" that's about the best you can do. There is also a "stay awake while charging" option avaialble in Settings > Developer options, but it obviously only applies if the phone is plugged into a power source.
