The Spellman Series Footnote Instruction Manual

by Lisa Lutz

If you should come across a footnote in the novel, do not be alarmed. You'll get used to them after a while. However, each eBook format uses a different format to navigate the text. I have been kind enough to mock up a quick user's guide.

Kindle

  1. Guide the cursor to where the footnote number is located. There should be a hand pointing to the number.
  2. Press the button down.
  3. Read footnote.
  4. Press the "back" button to return to the main text.

iBooks on iPad

  1. Use your stylus or finger to gently press on footnote number.
  2. Read only that footnote, so you don't spoil future surprises (in iBooks, footnotes are shown together).
  3. Tap on bottom of the page to reveal page number.
  4. On left-hand side, press "Back to page ___" to return to where you were reading.

Kindle on iPad

This format has some technical problems, so it's best to read on an actual Kindle. 

  1. Before you click on footnote, you need to remember your page location or bookmark the page.
  2. Use your stylus or finger to gently press on footnote number.
  3. Read footnote.
  4. Use "Go To" and enter page number.

Nook

  1. Footnote prompts are indicated by superscripts in the body text.
  2. Use the up and down arrows on the navigation monitor to move between footnotes on a single page.
  3. To select footnote, position the selector on the top of the proper footnote and tap the circular select tool on the navigation monitor.
  4. To return to text, tap the corresponding footnote prompt in the endnotes section.

Nook Color

  1. Footnote prompts are highlighted blue in the body text.
  2. Tap footnote on the Nook touchscreen.
  3. Read footnote.
  4. Tap the corresponding footnote prompt in the endnotes section to return to body text.
