eBook apps

To download and view eBooks on your computer or devices, you will need to download either Adobe Digital Editions or the Bluefire Reader app.

Adobe® Digital Editions allows you to download digital content, which can be read both online and offline.

You can transfer copy-protected (DRM) eBooks from your personal computer/laptop to other computers or devices.

You will need to set up an Adobe® Digital Editions account ID to download supported eBooks on your personal computer or other device.

Bluefire Reader is a free app available for Apple and Cloudshelf Reader is suitable for Android devices.

This app allows you to view DRM PDFS and epub formats.

You can use the same Adobe® Digital Editions account ID to download supported eBooks on Apple devices.
