    How to download books in a tablet?


    Want to know the procedure for downloading ebooks on a tablet? Find the exact procedure on this Ask Expert page.

    One of my cousins and his wife have gifted me a Lenovo tablet some time ago, because I helped my cousin's wife to prepare for an examination. Basically the tablet has been gifted to help me to download books. Although my cousin has very kindy downloaded more than 800 e-books of my choice, he has not clearly explained me the process of downloading. Rather I should say that I could not learn the procedure in half an hour.

    So, I would like to know the detailed process of downloading e-books in the tablet. I would appreciate if the Members explain the procedure step by step to a first-timer, without using technical jargon.

    I would also appreciate if the Members inform whether kindle edition of books can be downloaded in the tablet. If yes, then the procedure of downloading such books may also be explained.

    Eagerly waiting for help.

    You need to find out the file format of the ebooks. So based on those file formats, you can download the app that can read those ebooks. For example, FBReader app can read epub,mobi, pdf and few other book formats. And this helps you to read those ebooks.

    If you wish to read the amazon ebooks, then you need to download the kindle app. This app can then in turn read the ebooks purchased or borrowed on the kindle app. It has it's own settings for book reading. They set the app backlit and other settings. So depending on where you have book format you either neeed kindle app or app like FBreader for reading books.

    In case of FBReader you have to download any epub or mobi or pdf book from internet. And you just have to store the files in data card.

    In case of kindle app, you have to download the books through online site or from the app. That's how most of the people are purchasing, downloading and using the books. The books from kindle app are not readable outside by any other app.

    To read an ebook, you need to have an ebook reader. You can simply purchase any ebook from reputed online bookstore like Amazon, Flipkart or DailyHunt. Once you pay the amount and complete the order, you will get the downloading link for that book.

    If you have placed an order for an ebook from Amazon, you need to have Amazon Kindle app on your tablet. If you have bought a book from Flipkart, you need to have Flipkart ebook reader but nowadays, all Flipkart ebooks are transferred to another company app called Kobo. For Dailyhunt, the app itself will work as an ebook reader. In all cases, you need to first purchase the ebook from the store and once the payment is completed, you should log into the app and you will be given a downloadable link in the respective app to get the book.

    There comes a variety of extensions of e- books in the open source market. So the first step that you should perform is to download an app that can open all extensions of e- book. I would recommend you to download WPS Office from playstore.
    Now coming to the download part I would recommend you to download them from open source sites like slideshare, Kindle, ebazar, etc. Once you are able to download the required PDF file then you can simply open it via WPS office irrespective of its extension.
