Welcome to another Good e-Reader eBook Loading Tutorial! Today we teach how to load electronic books to your Skytex Primer Colour eReader! This is a brand new e-reader and the company that makes it does not do a good job letting people know how to copy books to your device. This e-reader reads EPUB, PDF, TXT, MOBI and HTML, which means it’s quite versatile in being able to read many formats.
In this tutorial we show you three different methods to copy ebooks to your Skytex Primer Colour eReader. We demonstrate Adobe Digital Editions, Calibre, and Windows Explorer.
The First method we show you is CALIBRE which is a free open source software program. It allows you a greater flexibility in managing your ebook library, converting one format to another, and editing your books. We show you this program and how to do its major functions. We also walk you through step by step the entire process of plugging in your e-reader to your computer and using this program.
The Second program we show you how to use is Adobe Digital Editions, this is also a free download. You want to use this program if you have purchased ebooks from other bookstores. Since the Skytex Primer Colour eReader uses EPUB, which is the most popular online book format, you will find a multitude of stores offering downloads. You can shop for books with Kobo, Barnes and Noble, Borders, Smashwords, and others. You can also borrow books from the library and then copy them to your device. We document the entire process of copying books via Digital Editions to your Skytex e-reader.
The final program we show you how to use has the least amount of flexibility but is the method most people should be familiar with. We show you how to use Windows Explorer and show you the different file directories in your device.
