Adding To Your E-Reader

How do you read our wonderful magazine on your e-reader? Or on the computer? We give you three file types: .mobi (for Kindle), .epub (for many devices) and .pdf (for computer and e-reader devices—we recommend .mobi or .epub for e-readers as they have more native functionality). If you already know how to get files to your e-reader, you are good! If not, we have some simplified instructions below. You can also use google to help if our links are not clear enough.

For PC:

  • Install Adobe Reader (get here)
  • Double click the .pdf

For Mac:

  • Double click the .pdf file and it will open in Preview or Adobe Acrobat.

For Kindle (.mobi file):

For iPad/iPhone (.epub file):

For Nook (.epub file):

  • You can connect your NOOK to a computer (using the NOOK Tablet microUSB cable) to transfer personal files. Your NOOK will appear on your computer as a removable drive. Just click on the file (.epub) on your computer and copy it (drag-and-drop) to the appropriate NOOK folder. (from http://www.barnesandnoble.com/u/Support-NOOK-Tablet/379003185/)
