How to transfer your PDF eBook to your tablet device
Macintosh or Windows users: just click on the Save File option instead of Open with options when your browser displays your download options.
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.
Transferring 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 and open the file. You will then need to “OPEN IN” Goodreader or other PDF reader because Dropbox does not handle PDFs well.
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 Goodreader to take advantage of the interactive features.
If this doesn’t help you, Google “sync ebook to itunes”
DropBox has an app for Kindle. Just install on your tablet and your computer, drag the file over and it will appear on your Kindle. Easy.
Transfer it using USB (see http://amazon.com/kindletransfer for details)
- Download the file to your computer.
- Connect your Kindle to your computer via the USB port.
- Use your computer’s file system to find the Kindle; it’ll show up like any other computer drive.
- Drag the file you downloaded into the Documents folder on the Kindle.
- Eject the Kindle from your computer as you would any other removable disk drive.
Other Kindle options:
– E-mail it ( http://amazon.com/kindlepersonaldocuments )
1. To locate your Kindle email address to go http://Amazon.com, click on My Account, scroll down and under “Digital Management” click on Manage Your Kindle. You will be prompted to login. On the left navigation bar, click on Personal Document Settings. Your Kindle email address appears at the top of the screen next to your device. Note that if you have registered a Kindle reader on your iPad or iPhone, you will find a separate email address listed next to each device.
Note that Amazon requires that you validate the email address that you send from. If you haven’t already done this, scroll down to “Personal Document Email List” and click on Add a New Approved Email Address.
2. After emailing the document, the PDF should appear in your Kindle menu shortly.
*Note that Amazon does not charge for personal document transfers sent over your own WiFi network, but if you use the built-in Whispernet to download your document, they charge per megabyte. More details on fees are available here.

For additional help with Kindle: www.kindle.com/support. Please don’t email us for support – we don’t use the Kindle and can’t support it.
You can read PDFs on your Nook, but since it’s not color, what’s the point.
