Technology has forever changed the way we share information with each other. One of the biggest changes occurred in book publishing. With the advent of digital document formats, entire books, known as ebooks, can be downloaded from a variety of websites as ACSM files. However, before you can read the ebook, it must be converted to an Adobe PDF file.
Visit an ebook retail website of your choice using Microsoft Internet Explorer or your favourite Web browser.
Click the ebook you wish to purchase and add it to your online shopping trolley.
Click the "Check Out" option on the screen. This will open a screen prompting you to enter your payment information.
Enter the requested payment information and click the "Purchase" option on the screen. This will open a screen containing your ebook's download link.
Click the provided download hyperlink. This will open a pop-up that will ask if you wish to download your ebook.
Click the "Yes" option to begin the download. The book file will now download to the "Downloads" folder on your computer as an ACSM file. Once the download finishes, Adobe Reader will automatically detect the ACSM file and convert it into an Adobe PDF document.
Double-click the "Downloads" folder on your computer to view the list of files you have downloaded.
Double-click the Adobe PDF file name representing the ebook you just purchased. This will automatically open the Adobe Reader program screen and display the ebook.
