Google's Chromebook only supports web applications and is NOT compatible with Adobe Digital Editions software. This means you will not be able to read books off-line that require Adobe Digital Editions or be able to transfer files from your Chromebook to another e-reader device. You CAN read books that are in .pdf format using your Chrome browser. To find e-books that are downloadable to your Chromebook to read off-line, check out the Google Play Books store and app.
