How do I download a book to my computer or tablet?

Go to the Music/Video/Books tab and choose Music Books.

Click the book you want, then click the blue ‘Download (book title)’ right under the picture of the book.

You will get a .zip file downloaded called (book title).zip which will go to wherever your downloads normally go. Locate this file and ‘unzip’ it to get the PDF of the book and the sound files (mp3s).

To “unzip” your download on a Windows PC, right-click on the file, and select “Extract All…”. On a Mac, you should just be able to double-click on the file. To view the PDF files, you will need the free Adobe Reader software.

What if I’m using a tablet or a smartphone?

Our download packs are always delivered as zip files. You will need an app to open these on your device. We recommend Winzip, which is free for Apple and Android devices. Apple users could also try iZip or UnlimDL free from the app store.
