Instructions for Downloading eBooks
To view your downloaded eBook offline, you need to first download the right app for your device:
PC Computer: Adobe Digital Edition http://www.adobe.com/products/digital-editions/download.html
Apple or Android: Bluefire Reader http://www.bluefirereader.com/
Kindle: Send to Kindle http://www.amazon.com/gp/sendtokindle
*Adobe Digital Edition is downloaded through the iTunes store. If you do not have iTunes installed on your device you will be prompted to install iTunes before you can download Adobe Digital Edition.
The first time you open a protected book, Adobe Digital Edition will ask you to authorize your computer. The best way to do this is to supply an Adobe ID or Vendor ID, associating the book with your ID. If you later wish to open the book on another computer, you can simply supply the same ID to open the book. If you don’t have an Adobe ID, click the “Create an Adobe ID” link. After creating the ID on the Adobe website, you can close that browser window, return to Adobe Digital Edition, and enter the newly-created Adobe ID.
If you choose to authorize without an ID, Adobe Digital Edition will enable reading of the book only on your computer. You will not be able to read it on other eReader devices or computers.
*You may check out and download only one book at a time.
