How do I read Verso eBooks?Updated 9 months ago

In order to read your eBooks, you must have an ebook reading app or program installed on your device.




Reading eBooks on Mac computers and iOS devices (iPad and iPhone)

On recent Macs, iPhones, and iPads, the ebook reader Apple Books (formerly iBooks) comes preinstalled.

To read eBooks on your Mac computer, download the epub file from your Verso Library, and right click to select “Open with Books.” The eBook should open automatically in the app. 

Once you’ve downloaded ebooks to your Mac, you can share them with your other devices either by using the “Sync Collections” function in Apple Books, or by emailing the epub file to yourself and opening it from the Mail app on your mobile device. For more information on syncing between Mac devices, please refer to this Apple guide. 

You can also download an eBook directly onto your iOS device. To do this, log into your Verso account on the device and find the book in your Verso Library.  Click the download link for the epub file and then select “Open in iBooks.” 




Reading eBooks on a Windows PC

For Windows computers, you will need to download a free e-reader app such as Adobe Digital Editions or the free open source program SumatraPdf. Once you’ve installed the relevant program that you wish to use and downloaded your epub file, you can right click on the epub file to open with the program of your choice.

n.b. Adobe Acrobat is not capable of opening epub files.




Reading eBooks on Android mobile devices (phones and tablets)

For Android devices, you will first need to install a free eReader app. If you’ve already downloaded an epub file to your computer, you can email the file to yourself and open it from a mail app on your mobile device. 

You can also download your eBooks directly onto your device. To do this, log into your Verso account on the device and find the book in your Verso Library. Click the download link for the epub file and then open it with your e-reader app. 

For more information please refer to guides specific to your device and/or eReader app. 




Reading eBooks with Kindle

For Kindle, you will need to first download the epub file to your computer by clicking the “download ebook” link in your Verso Library or order confirmation email. You can then use the Send-to-Kindle process to wirelessly deliver your eBook to your Kindle account. This will work for both Kindle devices and mobile apps.

Send-to-Kindle is available via 'Send to Kindle for Web' through your Amazon account in a web browser, via 'Send to Kindle from the Kindle App for iOS and Android Devices' and via 'Your Send to Kindle email address'.
