Reader! Reader!

Literary fiction, classics, dystopian, history, memoir, prize winners, and of course the 1001 books. You really might catch me reading anything!

Penguin's First to Read Program

Is anyone else out there a member of Penguin's First to Read program?

 

I "won" my first book this week. I downloaded it. I have Adobe Digital Editions on my computer already. But I cannot get it open. I need to choose (from an existing list) the "eBook vendor". First to Read is not a vendor, nor is Penguin. Penguin Books Australia is, but since I am in the US I really doubt that is what I want.

 

I messaged First to Read through their website and posted on their facebook page earlier this week. I have gotten no response from either. The little bit of info they have on how to log in must be past this window. They also have a link to ADE to ask questions of them.

 

OK—so I go to ADE. They have FAQs (this issue is not addressed) and suggest chat or forums. So I go search the forums. My question has been asked many times--and as far as I can see, it has never been answered. I really have no interest in a chat, based on too many customer service chat experiences, I know I will spend an hour with no answer.

 

Has anyone successfully opened one of these files? I would rather read it on my computer than on my phone.
