Here are some tips for reading your ebook:

  • RBdigital does not tell you how long the ebook is, just how long the chapter you are reading is. You can find that information at the bottom of the screen. It will say (for example) 1/29 in chapter. 
  • See the chapter list to determine how far along you are in your book or quickly go back to another chapter. Click on the three lines in the top right and choose "Contents". 
  • Bookmarks allow you to quickly navigate back to a section that really intrigued you.
    • Maybe there is a list of characters at the front of the book and you want to quickly go back to that list while reading - add a bookmark! Add book by clicking the yellow ribbon at the top right corner of the page. When you want to go back to that list you will click on the three lines in the top right. Then click "Bookmarks". Finally click on the right bookmark. 
      • Make sure you had a bookmark for your current book location before you click a previous bookmark!
  • Search within the book by clicking on the magnifying glass at the bottom of the screen. Type in a name or word and click on the magnifying glass again. You can click on a passage with the word in it and be taken to that page. 
  • Making notes and/or highlighting text: 
    • Use your finger to hold down on a word until it has a light grey highlight on it. Lightly move your finger around the screen to capture multiple words/lines of text. You can then choose to highlight or make a note on the text.
