An e-book (short for electronic book) is an e-text that forms the digital media equivalent of a conventional printed book, often restricted with a digital rights management system. Our e-books are electronic versions of the printed book which can be read on a personal computer or other devices that support Adobe's Flash Player.
In addition to zoom, reading, and downloading, eBooks are fully searchable and users can annotate, bookmark,and highlight them. Users can search for terms in a single book, across their purchased titles, or across the full site. Users can also print a limited number of pages.
Type a search term or phrase in the search text box and click on ‘Go’ to search the e-book content. Your search results will appear in a column on the right-hand side of the page. Specific search terms usually result in more targeted results. note: The search option is disabled when viewing the book in the full-screen mode.
The top panel in the reader has the Bookmark option. Clicking on it will bookmark the page being currently viewed. You can check for the pages that have been bookmarked in the 'My Bookmarks' segment in your 'My Folder' page.
