Adobe Digital Editions
Several AAIDD titles are now available electronically using Adobe Digital Editions.
Download Adobe Digital Editions here at no cost.
Read AAIDD E Books on Your Laptop or Desktop
To download and read titles on your PC or Mac, you first must have Adobe Digital Editions installed on your computer, then visit the AAIDD Bookstore to complete your purchase and download.
Read AAIDD E Books on Your Kindle, Nook, Tablet, or Phone
Once you’ve downloaded a title from the AAIDD Bookstore to your computer, Adobe Digital Editions allows you to transfer items from/to a supported eReader device.
To transfer the file, connect the supported eReader device to your computer and launch Digital Editions. Digital Editions automatically detects the presence of your device. Both Digital Editions and the device must be authorized to be able to transfer protected content to and from the device. Unprotected content can be transferred to and from the device without authorizing either the device or Digital Editions, but Adobe strongly advises authorizing Digital Editions as it gives you content portability for your protected books, whether on Digital Editions or the supported device.
After connection, the device appears in the library section. You can transfer items to and from the device just as you do with bookshelves in your library. You can read books that are on your device or your own computer.
