Blurb's Instant PDF is a complete digital reproduction of your book, watermark-free, that you can use to review, share or sell. To purchase and download a copy, please follow the steps below. If your PDF doesn't display properly once you open it, be sure your PDF viewer is properly set up.

1. Purchasing an instant PDF of your book
2. Downloading an Instant PDF that you created
3. Downloading an Instant PDF created by someone else

1. PURCHASING AN INSTANT PDF OF YOUR BOOK

A. Click on the order button for your book. 
B. Then check the box to add a PDF version to your checkout. (If you don't want to order a printed copy of your book, remove the print copy by setting  its quantity to zero).

3. DOWNLOADING AN INSTANT PDF CREATED BY SOMEONE ELSE

A. After purchasing the PDF, follow the download link in the email you'll receive shortly after placing the order. (Search your email inbox for a message with the subject "PDF ready for download"). 

B. Alternatively, go back to the page from which you ordered the book (usually a bookstore page/preview page for that book).. On that page you'll see the words "Download PDF copy". (You'll need to be signed in to your Blurb account to see that option. If you don't have a Blurb account/user name, you will need to create one).

C. If neither of those enable you to access the PDF please contact customer support.
