Printing Tips

Most PDF files in the Cold Reads collection are formatted for e-readers in either portrait or (2- or 3-column) landscape orientation. Printing these full-size can mean over a hundred pages, which is costly and wasteful.

To save ink and paper, try setting printer preferences for two-sided copies, two pages per sheet, and (for portrait files) landscape orientation; for landscape, portrait. The print will be small, but readable.

NOTE: Some scripts will download at a 90-degree angle. Rotate the orientation before you print.

Some scripts are also available by request as editable DOC files, in which case readers can save ink and paper by reducing the font size, using landscape orientation and two (or three) columns, and printing two-sided copies.
