Answer

Yes and no. If you have a Kindle tablet, you will be able to download the eBooks from our providers as long as you have an Adobe ID, the BlueFire app, and an Internet connection. Just use your Kindle's browser to download. Some of our providers will download it directly into the BlueFire app, some you will have to go to the download folder on the tablet and tell it to open in BlueFire. The Kindle e-Ink readers are not compatible with Adobe Digital Editions so you will not be able to download or send the file to them. If the download is a simple PDF with no rights management attached you will be able to read these on your e-Ink Kindle.
