  • After you have downloaded a book, you can switch from seeing all the books available (Cloud) to just those on your personal device (Device) at the bottom of the app screen.
  • When you are reading a book, if you would like to mark a page for future access, tap the bookmark icon. The icon will become visible by tapping at the top of the page you wish to mark.
