Downloading allows you to make a copy of the book or a chapter to come back to at a later date when you are not online but it requires additional software and has limited functions.  Some licences restrict downloading but if it is available you will find these options:

-  download the whole book for a specific period (this varies from 1 day to 21 days depending on the licence), usually using Adobe Digital Editions software to view.

-  download a chapter or pages in PDF to keep.  PDF documents can be read within an internet browser or using Adobe Acrobat Reader

In addition you can read ebooks on your mobile or tablet but you will need to first install either the Adobe Reader, Bluefire or Kortext apps from Google Play or Apple Store.
