How to Use Freading on your Kindle Fire
1) In order to download eBooks from Freading.com onto your Kindle Fire you will need to have
an Adobe 10. If you do not have an Adobe 10 you will need to create one at this point. Go to
https:/Iwww.adobe.com/accountlsign-in.adobedotcom.html.
You can do this from your Kindle or
from a computer.
2) Now click 'Don't have an 107' The reason you need an Adobe 10 is to authorize your device
to receive books from Freading. It is basically a way for Freading to make sure you are not
copying the books and selling them.
