How to import books from Google books ?

1 - WITH A WEB BROWSER ON YOUR ANDROID DEVICE

Connect to your Google Books account with a web browser on your Android device

 
Don't use the Google Play app along the following steps or you won't get the download links
  • Click on the book that you would like to read on your tablet so that it is displayed on Google Play (always choose the web browser when asked how you want to "complete the action"). Once you are on the Google Play page of the book, click on the thumbnail «How to read» on the right.
  • In the «eReaders and other devices» section at the bottom of the page you find the links to download the book as an EPUB or as a PDF.

Download the book to your device

When you press the download link, a list of applications to download the file is proposed to you. Choose Mantano Reader in this list. You can then choose to open the book and read it.


2 - WITH YOUR COMPUTER

Connect to your Google Books account on your computer
  • Once logged in you can click on «My books on Google Play».
  • Click on the book that you would like to read on your tablet so that it is displayed on Google Play. Once you are on the Google Play page of the book, click on the thumbnail «How to read» on the right.
  • In the «eReaders and other devices» section at the bottom of the page you find the links to download the book as an EPUB or as a PDF.

Download the book to your computer

If the book is protected you will get an acsm file, otherwise you will directly get the epub or the pdf on your computer.

Transfer the book to your smartphone or tablet

Connect your Android device via USB to copy and paste the file of the book on the device under a folder that your reader can access...wherever your other ePubs are stored, or send the book to yourself via email.
If you got the book from Google as an acsm file, the email method is ok, but if you directly got the entire EPUB or PDF the USB connection is recommended because the size of the file may be too big for an email transfer.

Open the book
  • Open the file on the Android device from the file explorer of the device or from the email where it is attached, depending on the case.
  • You will have the choice between several applications to open the file, and you can choose Mantano in this list. Wether the file is an epub, a pdf or an acsm, Mantano should open it just fine.
