Kobo/Borders ePub: Reminder To My Stupid Self

The Kindle Store and the Sony Reader Store have direct download buttons for their ebooks.

Kobo and Borders make it a two-step process:

1) Add Book to Library
2) Go to Library and then download ePub

This is because Kobo and Borders also have special versions for the Kobo Reader, desktop, and mobile apps.

I keep forgetting this!

      Have you downloaded Adobe Digital Editions and registered your Kobo for DRM? That’s the step you might be missing. Once that’s done, close ADE, unplug the Kobo. Then plug the Kobo back in and launch the desktop software. You should be able to download the books to the Kobo then.
