This is not a book. It may look and feel like any other book you've held in your hands and plopped on your nightstand-but it's not a book. It's a blog in print. A book should be a fluid continuous stream of prose, with a climactic arch and a subsequent dénouement. This printed blog doesn't really have those things. It has blog posts, posted comments, and emails in chronological order. It does tell a story, true-but it's neither edited, nor polished. This is an in-the-moment angst of a first-time mother going through a Russian adoption. A memoir would be told in the wise voice of a narrator who's been through the process successfully. This blog is told in the frantic voice of a chick who had no idea what was going on. It's not a book, but it's our story.
If you use one of Kobo's free reading apps you won't need to worry about download options most of the time. Your Kobo reading app can easily add Kobo Store books to your library for a seamless reading experience.
Download options matter when:
You want to read your book on an eReader other than the Kobo eReader (see here for a list of supported eReaders).
The book you want is only available as an Adobe DRM PDF.
In both of these cases you will need to:
Download a copy of your book to your computer.
Open the book using a free application called Adobe Digital Editions.
You can also use Digital Editions to transfer the book to your eReader. See here for more information on Digital Editions.
