When connected to the internet, you can choose Read Online or PDF Full Text to read an ebook. Downloading is not required.
To read an ebook on your computer or mobile device while you are offline, you can use the Download option. Several components are required before you will be able to download an ebook in most cases:.
- Adobe Digital Editions free software and a personal Adobe ID
- A personal account with the ebook provider
- Bluefire Reader app (or equivalent) for reading on mobile devices
Also, the options for the length of check out can vary widely from 1 day to 21 days depending on the publisher and title. However some ebooks are now being offered DRM-free, so they will allow unlimited downloading and saving.
