Download an eBook

The first thing to do is to download a book.

For this, you have the easiest solution: create a Kobo or Fnac By Kobo account to access the library on your eReader.

To do this, you need to connect your eReader to your Wifi network (this procedure is simple and can be performed from the settings of the eReader).

But, you can also download eBooks (eBooks) in EPUB format on many sites.

I often go to the Gutenberg.org website to download books. For this example, I will download a book by Jules Verne (in EPUB format):

The file is then saved to a folder on my Windows computer, in the Downloads folder (it may be different in your home).

Now you have to transfer the ePub to your Kobo eReader.

Connect your Kobo ereader to your computer

First you need to connect your Kobo ereader to your computer. To do this, you need to use a micro-USB cable (if possible the one supplied with the eReader and which you use to charge the machine).

You connect the eReader on one side and connect it to a free USB port on your Windows, Mac or Linux computer.

If everything goes well, a message will appear on the eReader asking if you want to connect the eReader to your computer:

click on the “Connect” button

You must validate this message and the e-reader will confirm that she understood correctly.

This message appears if the eReader is connected to your computer

Then you can verify that it works fine on your computer by opening the file explorer and accessing the contents of your kobo eReader.

When the Kobo eReader is plugged in, it can be seen from Windows

Transfer the ebook to your eReader by making a “copied /pasted”

The easiest way to transfer an ebook to your Kobo eReader is to make a simple copied and pasted of the EPUB file into your eReader folder.

You can simply copy a “.epub” file to your Kobo eReader

After unplugging neatly (first in Windows and then removing the cable), you will see your book appear in the library.

The book is well on your Kobo eReader

If it doesn’t work, there’s probably a problem with the format of your ebook. Don’t panic . Just continue reading: a second solution is provided and it works almost 100% of the time.

Transfer the ebook to your eReader with Calibre software

If you start having a few dozen books, it seems interesting to use software to organize your ebook library on your computer.

The most complete software is called Calibre and it has the advantage of being free. You can download it here: https://calibre-ebook.com/fr/download

Here is a video that allows you to understand the basics:

To add an ebook in Calibre, just Drag and drop the file into the software window so that the ebook is saved in your digital library.

You can see the file that has just been added to the Calibre software

Then, obviously you need to connect your Kobo ereader to your computer. I refer you a little higher in the article to find out how to do it.

To finally transfer the ePub to your eReader, simply click on the “send to device ” button in the Calibre software and wait a minute.

The button to use to send an e-book to your Kobo eReader

After unplugging neatly (first in Windows and then removing the cable), you will see your book appear in the library.

Transfer a Kindle eBook to a Kobo eReader

There is one particular and more complex case that should be mentioned here: how to put a Kindle ebook on a Kobo eReader?

This is complicated because both Kindle and Kobo eReaders use different systems with different files (Epub for Kobo and MOBI/AZW for Kindle).

It will therefore be necessary to go through a conversion step.
