Box of Books is an online reader first; however, you can download their offline reader and read the PDF versions of your online textbooks.
Step One: Log into Box of Books and click on Download Reader on the left-hand side menu (see image below).
Step Two: Box of Books will automatically detect the best version for your device and will direct you to download the appropriate reader. Before you click the version, copy and paste your Bobby Pin. It is the four digit number provided for you, see below.
Step Three: You will be directed to the Installer page. Click on the yellow button: Download Installer (see below).
Step Four: The installer will download to the bottom of your screen (see below). Double click the downloaded file to open.
Step Five: Once the installer opens, click Next.
Step Six: Accept the terms and conditions by clicking beside the accept statement (see below).
Step Seven: Click the Install button.
Step Eight: Click Finish once the installer has completed and the option to finish appears (see below).
Step Nine: The installer will disappear and be replaced with the registration form (see below). However, this form may be sitting behind another Box of Books tile. Minimise the tile to reveal the form.
Enter your school email and paste in the Bobby Pin you copied earlier. If you cannot paste the Bobby Pin you can find it again in your Personal Profile of your online Box of Books.
Step Ten: Your successful registration of your offline Box of Books will be confirmed with this message (see below). The Box of Books logo should be sitting on your task bar (see second image below). For easy access pin the Box of Books logo to your task bar. Right click on the logo and select Pin to taskbar.
