Easy Ways to Add Your Jewelry Ebooks to
Your Kindle, iPad, Smartphone,
Tablet, Nook, and Other Devices

 
Downloading Your Ebook When You Purchase

First, when you purchase your jewelry ebook, you receive an immediate link to download the ebook to your computer (or to whatever device you used during purchase).

You simply click that link, and your jewelry ebook automatically downloads.

Then you click on the downloaded ebook to open it – and you can start reading it right away.

Read Your Jewelry Ebooks
on Your Other Devices?

Below are several easy ways to add your jewelry ebooks to all of your favorite devices, so you can read your books everywhere you go!

Choose whichever method sounds easiest to you.

First, a couple of quick tips for Kindle and Nook device users:

Kindle Device Users:

Please see the best way to add your ebooks to a Kindle device.

Nook Device Users:

If your Nook device CAN access email, the simplest way to add your ebooks there is the Via Email method.

Otherwise, please use the method for Nook Devices That CAN’T Access Email.

 
And now for the methods that work on most devices:

 

Add Your Ebooks to Your Device
Via Email

Can you open and read emails on your device?

If so, here’s how to add your ebook to the device via email:

  1. Go to the computer where you downloaded your jewelry ebook after purchase.
  2. From that computer, send an email to yourself, with the jewelry ebook as an attachment to the email.
  3. Now go to the device where you want to add the jewelry ebook.
  4. From that device, open the email message you just sent – and click (or tap) on the jewelry ebook attachment.
  5. The ebook should open automatically on that device (or the device will ask you to choose a program for opening the ebook).

You can then save and read the ebook on that device.

On many devices, the ebook will be automatically saved in a folder called “Downloads”, “Documents”, or “Files”.

 

Add Your Ebooks to Your Device
by Dragging and Dropping

  1. Go to the computer where you downloaded your jewelry ebook after purchase.
  2. Open your computer’s file browser (“Finder” on Mac, “Windows Explorer” on PC), and find your PDF jewelry ebook file there (likely in your “Downloads” folder, or on your computer’s desktop).
  3. Turn on the device that you want to add your jewelry ebook to. Then plug the device into your computer.
  4. When your device’s icon appears in your file browser, click to open it.
  5. Now grab the PDF jewelry ebook file that’s in your computer’s file browser folder, and then drag and drop it to your device’s file browser folder. (If your device’s file browser shows multiple folders, drop the jewelry ebook into the folder of your choice – probably named “Books” or “Documents”.)
  6. When accessing your jewelry ebook on the device for the first time, you may need to have the device “Check for New Content” to make the ebook show up there.

Now you should be able to open and read your jewelry ebook on your device.

 

Add Your Ebooks to Your Device
Via iTunes / iBooks

Can you sync your device with iTunes?

If so, here’s how to add your ebook to the device via iTunes:

  1. If your device doesn’t have the iBooks app installed, go ahead and install it.
  2. Go to the computer where you downloaded your jewelry ebook after purchase.
  3. From that computer, open iTunes.
  4. In the iTunes Library, click on “Books”. (If you can’t find “Books” there, go to the main iTunes menu, open “Preferences”, and select “Books”. Then return to the iTunes Library and click on “Books”.)
  5. Open your computer’s file browser (“Finder” on Mac, “Windows Explorer” on PC), and find your PDF jewelry ebook there (likely in your “Downloads” folder, or on your computer’s desktop).
  6. Drag and drop the jewelry ebook file into the iTunes Books library.
  7. Now plug your device into your computer, and then select it in iTunes’ Devices Menu.
  8. Click the “Books” tab in iTunes.
  9. Click the “Sync” button, and then wait for your device to sync with iTunes.

Now your jewelry ebook will be available via the iBooks app on your device.

 

The Best Way to Add Your Ebooks
to a Kindle Device

This method converts your PDF jewelry ebook to Kindle content, so you have full use of Kindle’s reading features (annotations, variable font sizes, Whispersync, etc.).

  1. Go to Amazon.com and log in to your Kindle account.
  2. Find your Kindle email address in your account there. This email address will end with @kindle.com . Write it down – you’ll be using it in just a minute.
  3. Now in your Kindle account, go to “Manage Your Kindle”.
  4. Go to “Personal Document Settings” – and add your REGULAR email address (NOT your Kindle email address) to this list, so you’ll be able to email your jewelry ebook to your Kindle.
  5. Now go to the computer where you downloaded your jewelry ebook after purchase, and go into your REGULAR email account.
  6. From there, create an email message to send to your @kindle.com email address, with the jewelry ebook as an attachment to the email. IMPORTANT: Put “convert” as the subject of the email message, so the PDF jewelry ebook will be automatically converted to Kindle content.
  7. Then send the email message.

You can now open and read your jewelry ebook on your Kindle device.

 

The Best Way to Add Your Ebooks
to a Nook Device That CAN’T Access Email

If your Nook device is able to access email, you may want to use the Via Email method listed above.

However, if it CAN’T access email, here is the best method for adding your jewelry ebooks to it:

  1. Go to the computer where you downloaded your jewelry ebook after purchase.
  2. Open your computer’s file browser (“Finder” on Mac, “Windows Explorer” on PC), and find your PDF jewelry ebook file there (likely in your “Downloads” folder, or on your computer’s desktop).
  3. Turn on your Nook device that you want to add your jewelry ebook to. Then plug the Nook into your computer; it should show up as an icon in your file browser.
  4. Open the Nook device in the file browser, and find its folder called “My Documents”.
  5. Now grab the PDF ebook file from your original location in your computer’s file browser, and then drag and drop the ebook into your Nook device’s “My Documents” folder.
  6. When accessing your jewelry ebook on the Nook device’s “My Documents” for the first time, you may need to “Check for New Content” to make it show up there.
