What do I need to read an ebook?


It’s easy to read ebooks on your desktop or laptop computer. For a higher-quality reading experience, download an e-reading application. An e-reading application also called an “e-reading app,” is software designed for reading ebooks.

Several of the available ebook formats are easily read on a personal computer or tablet. The most common format and the industry standard is the EPUB and here are a few ways to read them:

  • For PC or Laptop, download and install the free Adobe Digital Editions.
  • For Apple devices (iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch/Mac), download the free Apple iBooks app from the iTunes app store, or consider other great free apps such as Bluefire or FB Reader (all available in the Apple App store).
  • For Android devices, download Aldiko, a free e-reading app.

Please note there are many third-party e-reading software applications, and we cannot provide you with support on how to install or use them. Most have online help files.
