Before attempting to download an eBook you purchased from Cokesbury.com, it is recommended that you download and register the free Adobe Digital Editions (ADE) software to your computer and set up your free Adobe ID. This will allow you to either read online or share your downloaded eBook between up to six devices (computer, eBook reader, smart phone, or tablet). Downloading and registering the software also allows easy transfer of both DRM (Digital Rights Management)-protected and non-DRM protected EPUB files.

eBooks purchased from Cokesbury.com can be read on an iPad, but you will need a reader besides iBooks loaded onto your iPad before purchasing and reading your eBook. Only eBooks purchased from Apple sites like iTunes can be read by the iBooks reader.
Bluefire Reader is a free iOS app that is that is compatible with ADE. It does require an Adobe ID, so if you don’t already have one, it will walk you through the creation of one when you attempt to open a purchased eBook with the reader.
First you will need to download Adobe Digital Editions onto your computer and set up your free Adobe ID. Then plug your Nook into your computer and open ADE. If this is the first time you have plugged in your Nook to ADE, you will need to authorize your Nook in Adobe to add the eBooks to this device. Once plugged in and activated, your Nook will be displayed in the left column of Adobe Digital Editions under Bookshelves. When you choose an eBook you wish to add to your Nook, click and drag the eBook over to the Nook icon and let go when you see the green plus sign. After you’ve added the eBooks you wish to add, you can unplug the device from your computer and access your Library by clicking on My Library, then View My Documents. Locate and select the eBook you wish to view.
To read Cokesbury eBooks on an Android device you can use an eReader called Aldiko. It is available from the following link: http://www.aldiko.com/
