ePub Books and the Church: The End of Dead Tree Books?

If you have no idea what ePub books are then you are not alone. The good news is that the Church has issued some ePub books that are freely available online. The bad news is that you have to download an Adobe Digital Editions Installer first. Visit the site and the launch the installer. You will have to give them an email and establish a password, but that is normal.


Once you have completed the installer, you should have an icon on your desktop. Click on it. Go to the Church's ePub book page and click on one of the books you want. It will download to your computer. Click the book and it should load into the Adobe Digital Editions reader.


So, what is that advantages over reading books online? Well, you can download EPUB books from your local library as well as the books the Church provides. Also, it may be a more reading-friendly format especially if you are old. I think it is easier to read than html or pdf books. You can read them offline as well. You do not need to be connected to the Internet.


So, check it out and happy reading!


(Is this the end of dead tree Church books? Unlikely.)
