How Do I Download an Open Source Digital Copy of the Book?

Go to the Internet Archive page for the novel here:

Access different file types of the digital version at the left-hand column.

1. "Read Online" allows any reader to open an online e-reader on your computer to read the book.

2. "PDF" allows you to open or download a PDF of the book. To download a copy to your computer, either (1) click on the PDF link then click on the save icon once the PDF opens, or (2) right-click on the PDF link and select "Save Link As".
    3. To transfer the "Kindle" file to your Kindle, plug your Kindle device in to your computer, then download/save the "Kindle" file (with a .mobi file extension) to the "documents" folder in your Kindle drive (the device that shows up when you plug in your Kindle, similar to a USB drive).

    4. What if I want to read the book on my Nook or iPad? You can transfer the PDF to either device, or convert one of the e-book file types to a file type that works for your device. Come by the library for more specific help.
