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.

HopeAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Wonderful ResourcesOctober 11, 2013HopeAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Although it seems like this isn't a particularly well known book when I ask others if they have read it, I think it is one of the best books addressing grief available.
Someone had recommended it to me and I happened to end up reading it not long before someone close to me died. Although my education is in the counseling field, and I have read numerous books on grief, as well as walked through the loss of many others close to me prior, I was grateful to have just read Sittser's book.
I was grateful I had read this prior to that particular death, though, as I think reading the extent of the loss that Sittser walked through might have been difficult when in the middle of processing your own grief.
However it is a book to return to over and over, whether you've lost someone or not.
What I really liked, though, is that Sittser's book really contains valuable principles that transfer to loss in general, not just death - meaning chronic/severe illness, etc. as well.
It is truly an exceptional gem and worth reading and returning to over and over.
