Using a Digital Reader to Read Powerline

NSEA is making it easier than ever to follow the 78th Legislative Session by publishing Powerline for digital readers. Powerline is published weekly and provides a quick, interactive way to connect directly with the bills and issues the NSEA Lobby Team is following and focused on. If you are using an iPhone or iPad you will want to download the Powerline.epub file. If you are using a Kindle, follow the instruction on how to download the file. You can read Powerline on a PC or print it out using the Powerline.pdf file. We hope you enjoy this new method of staying informed with the legislature.

How do I read an .epub ebook on my iPhone or iPad

iBook comes standard with most iPads and iPhones and is easily recognizable by the book icon on it. You might have to swipe through a few pages on your device before finding the iBooks app. If you can’t find the app on your i-device, you’ll have to download it through the App Store. To do so, simply tab on the App Store application. Then, enter iBooks in the search bar.

Tap on the Powerline file that says .epub to download it to your phone or iPad. Note the pdf version will work as well. The .epub version is designed specifically for i-devices. After it downloads you may have to tap it again to open it. You will know right away because a prompt will come up asking you which application to use to read the .epub document.

When your iPhone or iPad asks, select iBooks. The ePub document is added to your iBooks collection inside the iBooks app. From now on, you can open the ePub document from the iBooks app on your iPhone or iPad.

How do I get a .mobi ebook onto my Kindle?

.mobi is the native format for books used on Amazon Kindle reading devices. If you have a Kindle reader or Kindle reading application on your smartphone or tablet you will need to use the .mobi type of file.
There are at least two different ways to get onto your Kindle.

Email it to your Kindle

You might not know this but every Kindle activated with an Amazon account is assigned a unique email address. You can simply email the file or any mobi file as an attachment to the email address associated with your Kindle.
To find the email address of your Kindle, login to your Amazon account and visit the Manage Your Content & Devices ( page.

It defaults to showing you “your content,” the Kindle books and other items in your library. Click on the “Your Devices” tab to see the Kindle devices and applications that are associated with your account.

After clicking on one of the devices – there might only be one – you can finde beneath the icon the email address associated with that Kindle. It will be something like Save that email address.

There’s one more step to email to your Kindle

Your Kindle won’t just accept emails from anyone. You have to approve the sending email. To do this, click on the settings tab. Scroll down to the “Send-to-Kindle E-Mail Settings” portion of the page. Scroll down to the “Approved Personal Document E-mail List.” You must send your document from one of the email addresses on this list. If you don’t have one, you can click on “Add a new approved e-mail address.”  By the way, the email message Subject and Body are optional, and completely ignored. All that matters is the “.mobi” file attached.

Once you send the .mobi file to your Kindle, two things should happen:

1. The .mobi file will be delivered to that Kindle the same way that purchased books are delivered.
2. The .mobi file will also be placed in your Kindle library. You can then download it to any of your other Kindle devices without needing to email it again.

Copy it to your Kindle

The other approach is relatively simple, but in my experience a tad less reliable.

Connect your Kindle device to your PC using a USB cable.

In Windows Explorer / File Explorer your Kindle will either appear as an additional drive, or as a Kindle device. In either case copy the “.mobi” file into the folder “Books” (Kindle Fire devices) or “Documents” (Kindle Paperwhite and older devices) in the device’s internal storage.

After it has been copied safely disconnect your Kindle and the book should appear on the device’s list of books.

Note: The various lists of books provided by the Kindle device can sometimes take a while to update. Also note that copying a book to the device in this manner does not place it in your Kindle library for other devices.
