Ebook Central



You can read e-books either online with browser or download them to your PC or mobile device and read them with Adobe Digital Editions software.

While downloading an e-book, choose first which device you are using, that is PC or mobile device, after which you are asked to download Adobe Digital Editions software. Adobe Id must be authorized only in that case, if you want to read books also with other computers. If you only use one computer, checkmark the option I want to authorize my computer without an ID.
