Question How to load books???

Hello everyone,

Is there a way to load pre-bought books onto my kobo desktop software or my app for my android phone?

I know how to load them onto a device with sideloading, but if i don't have a physical kobo device, am i even able to read non-kobo bought books on it?

Thanks for your help.

No unfortunately, you can't associate sideloaded (or third party) books to your Kobo account (which is essentially what you're wanting to do)... Doesn't work as neatly as for instance with the Kindle.

You'll need a separate reader app such as Aldiko or Mantano on your phone for your sideloaded books. Of course you can also read your Kobo books on these if you have downloaded the epub version onto your PC from your web account using Adobe Digital Editions (ADE). They can then be loaded into the app from your computer.
