you prefer to read your book in the browser, tap READ to start reading the
title in your browser. (You can bookmark the title in your browser so you can
easily return to it).
8. The default lending period for eBooks is 7 days. If you wish to borrow books
for 14 days you can change the default lending period by going into
“Settings” under the Account tab. This will reset the loan period for future,
not current, check-outs.
Note: Download time depends on the size of the book and your connection
speed. Apple requires a Wi-Fi connection to download files over 50 MB on
iOS devices.
