Hi. I'm Skylar. Let's go over how to get eBooks on to your iPod Touch. The easiest way is to just go out and get the eBooks application from the app store or the Kindle application, either of those are pretty good. Nook is also good and if you search for free books in the app store you'll find a lot of different apps that allow you to access books that are in the public domain, very easily. But I'm just going to go over quickly on how to use eBooks. So slide to unlock and first we go out and download it from the app store. Once you do tap on it to open it and you'll see your bookshelf. Once iBooks loads look in the upper right, tap store and then tap search. I'm going to look for a book that I know is in the public domain and therefore free. So I tap search and type in Count of Monte Cristo, right there. The Count of Monte Cristo. So I tap that and it'll search the iBook store for all books and match that title. There we go, free. So I tap free, and then I tap get book, and it starts to download. In the upper right if I, oop, there's my password open, just type your password in and the store should flip back over on to the bookshelf. There we go. So that's the way to get books on to your iPod from the iBook store. The process would be a little bit different through Kindle. You would actually the book through the Amazon website and then it would be delivered to your iPod. Another way to get books on to your iPod is with a computer. So I'm just going to plug my iPod into iTunes like so, and over here on iTunes I should see on the left hand side, under devices my iPod appear momentarily. There we go. Zaffods iPod. So click on the name of your iPod, going to cancel this sync. OK. So what I want to do is scroll down and find manually managed music and videos. Check that box. Now I'm going to go to my purchase tab because I know I've got some books in there. And click that and find a book. There you go, Getting Things Done. Then drag that on to my iPod, let it go and up at the top it says it's updating the files. Preparing to update. That means it's actually moving that book to the iPod. And once it's done it'll be accessible through iBooks, the application we just looked at. That's it. Thanks for watching. I'm Skylar.
