How to transfer your PDF eBook to your desktop and/or tablet device (please note that we cannot offer technical support on using your tablet or transferring your files, but here are some general instructions to get you started after you receive the link to your digital PDF copy of the book):
To read it on your Desktop:
Click on the book’s PDF link. Click on the Save File option instead of Open with options when your browser displays your download options. Save it to your desktop and open it.
To read it on your iPad/IOS device (transfer the file to your iPad):
Any cloud-based service such as Dropbox (Free!) will accommodate you in terms of easily transferring the files. Just drag the file into your Dropbox, let it sync. Go to your tablet/iPad and open the file. You will then need to “OPEN IN/COPY TO” a PDF reader because Dropbox does not handle PDFs well. Examples are Books, PDF Reader, Kindle, Adobe Acrobat Reader, Chunky, etc. "OPEN IN/COPY TO" Books seems to have the best reading experience. You can also email the PDF to your Kindle on your iPad (see the steps below).
On your iPad browser (Safari, IE, Chrome, etc.), click on the PDF link through your email and Open/Save it. You can read it right in your browser on your tablet.
Open the PDF after you have uploaded it to a cloud-based service. For example, Drobox has an app for your iPad device. Save the book PDF to your Dropbox file, then install Dropbox on your tablet. Open the book PDF through Dropbox.
You might find that some of the items on the navigation bar within the PDF do not work. This varies between apps, versions of the app, etc.
Sync the file with iTunes like any other eBook.
Once you’ve downloaded the book, find it on your hard drive. Drag the eBook file to the tray at the left hand of the iTunes window, aiming for the “Books” icon, though the whole section will work, too. This will automatically add the eBook to your iTunes library. Click the Book menu to make sure this has happened.
Sync your iPad. Depending on your sync settings, the eBook may automatically be added to your iPad. If not, you may have to go to the “Books” tab in the iPad management screen and check the box next to the new book. On your iPad, you should then OPEN IN a PDF reader to take advantage of the interactive features. If this doesn’t help you, Google “sync eBook to iTunes”
