How to Add a Book to Your E-reader

If you downloaded a book from Instafreebie or Bookfunnel, or received a file sent directly from an author, you might be wondering how to get the book onto your e-reader. Not to worry. This guide will help walk you through the process.First thing’s first, you need to make sure you have a file in the right format for your e-reader. They have a file ending, as follows:

Kindle: .mobi

Nook, Kobo, iPad, and many other devices: .epub

PDF files can also be opened on many smartphones and tablets (including iPad), though the text will not adjust to the size of your screen. It is usually easier to read on a small screen with one of the file types given above.

Once you have the right file type, click the link below for the specific device you have. It will provide full details on the steps you need to take, as the process for each device is different.
