ChristianBook eBooks on the Sony Reader
To read a Christianbook.com licensed eBook on your Sony device, you will need to use Adobe Digital Editions.
Without using ADE, the Sony Reader will attempt to open eBooks with its own software, the Reader Library, and you may receive an error message.
To bypass the Sony Reader Library, return to the eBook portion of 'My Account' on our site, and click to download the eBook again.
When the Adobe Digital Editions installer comes up, click on 'Download Item.'
If you are downloading a DRM Protected eBook, you will be prompted to open or save the URLLINK.acsm. Click 'Save'.
Save the file to your Desktop for quick access later.
Right-click on the URLLINK file, then select 'Open With' and choose Adobe Digital Editions.
If Adobe Digital Editions is not in the list, click 'Choose Default Program' and then select Adobe Digital Editions from the list.
Your eBook will open and display in ADE.
Plug in your Sony Reader, which will now display its model number and not just as Sony Reader.
Now just click, drag and drop your eBook onto the Sony Reader icon.
You can now eject your Sony Reader, open up the Books library and your eBook is ready to read.

John tells the story from the points of view of Jill, Jack, and even Jill's sister, Vivian. The reader gets to see Jacks confusion, Vivian's sisterly love, and Jill's pain, which all help her regain who she was. While staying with family, Jill meets Agnes, who advises her to lay all her problems at the foot of the cross and trust in God alone. Romans 15:13 says, "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." Jill does an overhaul of her life resulting in many life changes, including aspects of her marriage.
Through many events, such as moving in with her parents, working with her sister, learning of her son's surprise engagement, terminating her book tour, and ending her radio show, Jill becomes a new woman. She sets aside the bossy, stubborn, and prissy aspects of her former life so that she can draw closer to God and discover his will for her life. With the advice of many, Jill lays down the aspects of herself she can no longer respect so that God can help make her into a new person.
Although focused on important contemporary issues, Desert Gift takes a long time to finally get moving. The lead draws the reader in, but then the story drags for a long time, giving too much back story and character angst and not enough action and plot momentum. The book does not completely satisfy in entertainment value. In spite of that, the story is filled with biblical references and solid advice that can be applied to all relationships, not just struggling marriages; I recommend this book to anyone who been in a difficult relationship or wants to draw closer to God.
