Download a reader application


In order to download eBooks you must have a reader application on your computer which can read the documents or files. If you already have a Reader, the installation of a digital library will be automatically suggested when you install the Reader.

We recommend downloading the free Adobe Digital Editions application.




This application enables the reading and managing of digital publications. You can download digital books (eBooks) with this application and load them from your computer onto others (within legal limits). The application also gives you the possibility of building a personal library of your eBooks. This digital library handles the standard eBook formats including  PDF and ePub formats available on www.e-readers.ch


Adobe Identification


Opening the application for the first time, you will be asked for an Adobe identification (create an ID). This procedure will allow you to download eBooks protected by digital rights management (DRM), which will protect the works from illegal sharing with third parties. The great majority of digital publications available to buy on www.e-readers.ch and on other sites are protected by DRM. Without the correct application and without an Adobe ID you will not be able to read your documents on other computers or devices (Readers).

Online order
After having sent your order on www.e-readers.ch, you will receive a confirmation email, containing the links for downloading your purchased titles.

=> You will find the links to the downloads also under « my account » or « my latest purchases » on www.e-readers.ch

Click onto the relevant link and your purchased book will automatically be downloaded to your Adobe Digital Edition library. Now you can settle down to read!
