  • You *don't* want to put the books in the /etc/bin folder. It varies from distro to distro, but you should have a "Documents" folder in your Home folder. /home/username/Documents. That is where you should have the app store the books.

  • Short Answer: as long as the program is asking you where to put these files (books), it shouldn't matter where you put them. (I just REALLY wouldn't mess with /root if I were you) It should use these files just fine whether you put the books in /downloads, /documents, etc.

    Hope this helps,
