trouble downloading to ipad

I was trying to download the 2017 live guide to my iPad.
I tried both links for downloading and keep getting "safari couldn't open the page because the server stopped responding" i am at home on wifi and every other device is working fine.
Any direction would be helpful
Thank you

Is this the LIVE! Guide PDF you're trying to download?

Have you tried downloading anything else, to make sure it's the Guide having problems, since your other devices work?

Yes, it's the Live guide i am trying to download to my iPad. I can download other things. When I also tried to "save PDF to ibooks" option from top menu bar of the iPad, I get a jacked up PDF of just the "Create your downloadable Book" 2 page

Have you tried just downloading it as a PDF document, not an ibook? It might not be formatted to work as an ibook.

(I confess I'm not really up on iPads; DH has one, but I'm a Windows gal.)

I let my husband work at it after awhile and he somehow got it to download. He is not sure how he eventually got it to go, but after an hr of work he was able to have the option to open as ibook. Glad that's over with and i have a PDF version of the book. Too soon to tell if I will like it, but part way through the process i was really wishing for the old school paper version!

I'm glad you got it to work! Sorry I didn't see this earlier. I will put the directions on how to do this here for anyone who reads this and may have an issue later.

On an iPad, you need to use the mobile-friendly link in the Create Download page, and you need to be sure you have a strong Internet connection and free space on your iPad. Once it is downloaded, you then need to save it to iBooks (which can save PDFs) with the button in the upper right corner of your PDF.

If you have issues with any of that, I recommend downloading it elsewhere (like on a computer) and simply mailing it to yourself on your iPad. Then you just download and save to iBooks.

For what it's worth, these issues aren't new to the LIVE! Guide. We've been helping people get their PDFs onto their iPads and tablets since we began offering PDFs. And I think we are always able to help in the end.
