Did you unwrap a Kindle, Nook, or other tablet or e-reader this holiday season? Are you ready to start reading, but not sure where to start? We've compiled some helpful tips and links on how to set up your device as well as how to start downloading library e-books.
Setting Up Your Device
First, charge your device for at least 4 hours. All e-readers can be charged by using a USB cable to connect the device to a computer. If you have a power adapter that will allow you to charge the device from a wall outlet, use it. Your device will charge more quickly from a wall outlet than from your computer.
Once your device is charged, you will need to follow the manufacturer's steps for registering your device before you can use it. Usually directions for this process are included with the device. If not, click the name of your device below to go to the manufacturer's startup instructions.Add a comment
