I can't believe I'm asking this, and yes, I did read the manual. There's supposed to be a "view" button after you "open" "a book". There is no view button. All I have is "Read" and "Archived" checkboxes. I spent the better half of the morning spinning up an AWS instance, making I don't even know how many logins, and installing all the software so I could read a PDF on a tablet. Which seems insane, because it is. Now I can't figure out how to open the books I've uploaded because the user interface is just that obtuse.
Please help me.
