Downloading a Kobo eBook to your eReader

Eason have partnered with Kobo to bring you the best in class experience for buying, reading and storing eBooks. If you have previously purchased an eReader from Eason, such as a Sony, iRiver, Elonex or Trekstor reader, you can still download and read Kobo eBooks on these eReaders.

To download a Kobo eBook to your eReader via your PC or laptop:

You will need to save a copy of your Kobo eBook to your computer, and then transfer it to your eReader using Adobe Digital Editions.
When you download a copy of your book you will get a file with an .acsm extension. This is the license for your book.

To open your book and transfer it to your eReader:
  1. Make certain that:
    • you have Adobe Digital Editions installed. For information on how to use and install it, visit our Adobe Digital Editions guide.
    • your eReader is connected and has been authorised
    • you are connected to the Internet
  2. Download your book from the Kobo Store
  3. Connect your eReader to your computer.
  4. Navigate to where you saved your book.
  5. Double-click the .acsm file. Digital Editions will open the license file, download the rest of your book, and add it to your library.
  6. In Digital Editions, drag your book from your library to the icon representing your eReader.

That’s it! Your Kobo eBook is now loaded into your Reader.
