How to Read Your MOBI or EPUB File on Your Favorite Device
Thank you for taking the time to download a Kindle/MOBI or EPUB file. Here's what to do with it:
To Read on a Kindle or Kindle App:
Make sure you've chosen a "MOBI" file, which is the proprietary Amazon/Kindle file type. This page at Amazon.com can help you transfer a MOBI file to your Kindle account. You will be shown how to download the file, then attach it to an email and send it to your private Kindle account email, which puts it in your Kindle library.
To Read on an iPad or iPhone or an Android tablet or device:
Choose the "EPUB" file type and open the file by touching it. On an iPhone or iPad, this will launch the iBooks application. It couldn't be easier.
On an Android device, touching the file should launch an e-reader. If it doesn't, you can download any number of e-reader apps to open the file.
To Read on a computer:
On a Mac, downloaded EPUB files will launch automatically in iBooks.
On a PC, you will need to download Adobe's free e-reader software, Adobe Digital Editions.
To Read on a Nook:
Download Adobe Digital Editions and follow their instructions to link your Nook to the computer via USB cable.
