1. Always Download the PDF File to Your Computer
This is very important. Even if you don’t plan on reading the e-Book on your home computer, you’ll want to download a version there for safe-keeping. The download link you will receive is good for 4 downloads or 72 hours, whichever comes first, so you’ll want to make sure you have it somewhere safe where you can hold onto it. Save it to your computer hard drive so that you’ll know where it is the next time you want to access it.
2. Use iBooks
Use the iBooks App from iTunes. The app is free and can be easily installed from the App Store in iTunes (I promise!). If you’re not familiar with how to install an app, see the video at the bottom of these instructions. Note: using the Kindle for iPad App may result in certain links not working in the e-Book. It’s best to use iBooks with the iPad.
Once you’ve downloaded the file to your computer, transfer it to your mobile device. This page from Apple gives instructions on reading PDFs on Apple devices.
Here’s the key section from that link:
Syncing and saving PDFs
To add PDFs to your iTunes library on your computer, simply drag and drop the PDF into your iTunes Book library.
To sync a PDF to iBooks on your device:
- Select your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch in the Devices list on the left in iTunes 10.1 or later.
- Click the Books tab in the resulting window.
- Ensure that the Sync Books checkbox is enabled.
- If iTunes is set to only sync selected books, be sure to enable the checkbox next to the PDF you want to sync.
- Click Sync.
