In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to use your Google Books eBook reader to download ebooks from the Google Books website.
We’ll walk through how to configure your device to download ebook files from the web, and we’ll walk you through installing a free version of Google Books.
We also cover setting up a Google Calendar app, installing Google Maps, and how to download a PDF of a book from the Kindle Store.
If you don’t know what Google Books is, we’ll explain that.
This tutorial is divided into three parts.
Part 1: Installing Google Books Ebooks from Google Drive Google Drive is Google’s digital archive, which stores, indexes, and searches millions of books.
It’s easy to use, but we won’t cover it in this tutorial.
The basic setup is to create a new folder in your Google Drive, called My Ebooks, and then add a folder to the “Download” tab in the “File” menu.
When you open a book in Google Books, the book’s cover will be displayed.
Click the “Open” button at the bottom right of the page, and you can choose which folder to store the book in.
If the book is in the Kindle store, the folder will appear next to the book, and if it’s not, it will appear as a blank page.
The Google Books app will open.
Click on the book to open it in Google Drive.
In the first menu, you can create an account and start downloading books.
Click here to create an email account.
Click next to “Subscribe to Google Book” to save your book to your Google account.
Once the book has been downloaded, it can be added to your “Read” folder.
To read it on your Kindle, select the book from its list of books, click the “Play” button, and select the ebook file from the library.
Click your favorite book, then “Publish” to open the ebook on your computer.
Clicking “Open on Kindle” opens a window that lets you edit the book.
Click to expand the book list.
Click an item to show its metadata, then click the Edit button to add it to the collection.
Once you’ve finished editing the book metadata, click “Open,” and you’ll be taken to the Google Reader reading list.
You can also preview the book before reading it.
To open the reading list, go to the bottom of the Google Drive app, and choose “My Reading List.”
Click the book you want to preview.
It will open up in Google Reader.
Click in the top right corner of the book window to bring up a drop-down menu, select “Preview,” and then click “Preview” to preview the title.
If there are more than one items you want previewed, click one of the books in the list.
When the preview is finished, click back to the reading window to close it.
If all of the items are available in Google Book, you’re ready to read them.
To close the reading manager, click your favorite item and choose Close.
The next time you open the Google book, it’ll show the preview.
You’ll need to open a new window to preview it again.
If it doesn’t, you will need to reopen the reading management window.
When finished reading the book using Google Books and Google Reader, you have the ability to edit and publish it.
Click and hold on the bookmark to bring it up in the reader, then select it from the list of bookmarks.
If no bookmarks are present, Google Book and Google Chrome will ask you if you want the book preview to open in Google Chrome.
You’re ready for your next reading.
To view and edit your book, open your Google books app, select your book from your reading list and click “Edit.”
Google Books will display the book as a preview.
Click Edit to edit the text.
You should see the text appear in the book page.
To remove the text, select it and click Edit.
To save the book and close it, select Close.
You now have access to your book in both Google Books apps.
Click Save to save the changes.
Click Close to close the book management window and return to the main menu.
Part 2: Configuring your Google Book reader for Kindle apps, or other Kindle reading apps You can use your Kindle app to read Kindle books in your Android smartphone or tablet.
For this tutorial we’re going to show you how to install and use a free Kindle app called Kindle Reading Manager.
If your Android device is running Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), you can download the Kindle ReadingManager app from Google Play.
You must be running Android 3.2 or higher to use Kindle Reading manager.
