Why does my book not Have a "Read Now" link?

If a book does not have a “Read Now” link, it may be due to one of the following reasons:

  • the book you have downloaded may be in PDF format
  • you may be using a browser that is not compatible with the Bookshare Web Reader.
  • if you are using a compatible browser and the “Read Now” link is not available, your book has not yet been processed to be used with Bookshare Web Reader.   
  • you may be on an sponsor account. The Web Reader is only available to users with member accounts.
