I've just signed up to my local library in London, UK, which operates an e-book "lending" service.
Unfortunately they have chosen as their partner Adobe Digital Editions, which appears not to work with most of the popular systems, e.g. Kindle, iBooks etc.
Should I waste more time trying to transfer the books I've managed to download to my Macbook across to my iPad (the sign-up process alone was a massive faff !), or just give up?
I use Bluefire Reader to read library books on my iPad. Download it from the App Store. I download them to Adobe Digital Editions on my Mac and sync the books to the iPad.
Thank you, Toniste, for that suggestion, which I will try. Certainly, trying to import the books into Apple's iBooks produced, for each one, the error message: "This file is corrupted."
I'll report back !
