Log into your internet browser and then go to Google Play Books.

Find the book. This can be done by typing the title of the book into the box for searching. The search results will appear beneath the box for searching.

When the book you searched for appears in the search results, you’ll see an indicator to tell if it’s a cost-free eBook or payable. After you click the book, there’s the “read” option available on the page that describes the book. This allows you to read the book on your computer. But, you won’t be capable of downloading this book, or even any pages through this.

To download this book just go into the Google Play “My Books” library. You will find the book you’ve just recently opened.

Then, click on the book’s three-dotted semicolon. Once you’ve clicked it an option list will pop up. Click on the “Export” choice. After that, a dialog box appears with the following message:

The ACSM file that is exported ACSM file is secure and requires opening with Adobe Digital Editions. This means that you’ll need Adobe Digital Editions software to start because of its DRM protection

In the dialogue box, you have an option: Export ACSM to PDF. If you’d like to download the data in PDF format, choose Export ACSM to PDF. After that, the file download will begin.

Even if you get the PDF files you aren’t able to print them due to the copyright safeguards it provides. This is because of that publication’s DRM copyright encryption that protects it. The DRM encrypted eBooks on Google Play only allow users to read the book online using web browsers, or Adobe Digital Editions.

That is unless you eliminate all encrypted DRM protection. It is possible to convert those DRM-protected Google eBooks into DRM-free documents with the help of DRM removal programs like Epubor Ultimate.
