Answer

Yes you can! Check out this handy handout to see if your device is compatible with Axis360.

You can  choose to install Adobe Digital Editions and then be sure to select the Adobe ePub format from the Axis360 website (Magic Wall) or the web catalog. Our Step by Step Guide will walk you through the process! 

OR

You can now read eBooks in your browser without downloading any software or apps.  Woo Hoo!

Axis 360 Read Now  is a browser-based eBook reader that works on many computers, tablets and mobile devices running up-to-date browsers.

What's a browser? If you don't know what a browser is, you're not alone.  But I'll bet you kind of do know - its what you click on to get on the Internet.  Firefox, Safari, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer are all browsers. 

The neat thing is you can save your eBook to read offline.  So when you are kicked back on the beach you don't need to be connected to WiFi or use your data.

You will need to turn off your pop-up blocker to read your book.  If you don't know how to do this just ask Google.  The instructions will differ depending on what browswer you use.  For example, you may have to ask Google ......how to turn off pop up blocker in Chrome.........

Learn all about this new Read Now option on Axis360's FAQ page.
