How do I download Adobe Digital Editions?
In order to view your downloadable eBook you will need to download Adobe Digital Editions. This is a free download at http://www.adobe.com/products/digital-editions/download.html. Be sure to choose the correct download link depending on whether you are using a Windows PC or Mac.
Why do I need to activate my computer with an Adobe ID?
Some digital publications that you order online may contain digital rights management (DRM) protection that restricts the items from being shared with others. Adobe Digital Editions helps ensure that your eBooks are not "locked" to one computer. They are assigned to you through an ID, and can be viewed on any compatible device you own that you activate with your Adobe ID.
