Re: Using my Playbook

You have to download a reader app. I have two different ones -one for books I own and one for books borrowed from my library.  For the books that I own, I connect my PlayBook to my computer and using the Desktop software I then drag and drop the book from the downloaded folder on my computer to the book folder on my PB.  Open the book reading app on PB and select the add a book icon and it will search for all books to add to your library.   I am not sure what file type Amazon ebooks are so I'm not sure if this will work for you but it works for most ebooks.  It took me a little playing around with my PlayBook when I first got it but now I'm just having a blast!   Hope this helps.  Good luck.

Not fair!  You included two unrelated questions in your post!  Please pardon the scolding...
