Select your book.

We can either search for the book, or browse by options provided on left side bar. For now let us choose Nirjana Vaaradhi!

Click on the thumbnail of Nirjana Vaaradhi.

Getting to know a book

Another page opened! Cool. Let us see what it says. It shows us book cover page as thumbnail, it gives us description in few lines. Let us read the description. Cool. The description looks interesting. Let us see what else is provided. We can scroll down a bit to see what is there below description.

Alright, they have more details. Some keywords Reader Rating, Language, Print Publisher. Etc.

What else we have? On the right side we have some buttons. There are prices. And some more options.

To buy or not to buy?

Let us see if there is any other information which might help us to take a decision. There is one interesting button, Download Free Preview!

Let us click on it.

Free Preview

Alright, something happened.

What happened?

We got some Login screen. But what is login ? There is that yellow color text, it says “Login required to proceed further, New users can register” .

Register on Kinige

We are a new user. Let us register. Click on Register link.

We got another screen. It is asking few details. Let us fill them.

  • Username ==> Enter your desired username
  • Password ==> something secret
  • Confirm Password ==> Confirm password.
  • Email address ==> A valid email address.
  • Mobile number ==> This is optional. Can be left blank.
  • Enter the characters. ==> This is required to protect Kinige from spammer bots.

See above screenshot, I filled details. Now after filling your details (not my details :P) click on Submit button.

Cool. We got another yellow bar. What did it say this time? “Registration is successful. Check your mail and activate the account”. Alright, let us check our mail.

In my inbox, I found a mail as show above. Let us open that mail.

We see something like above. Let us click on the link above. (note: I blacked part of link , as it is supposed to be secret)

We see above message after clicking on link.

Let us go back to square one.


Click on our favorite book. (Nirjana Vaaradhi for now)

Click on Download Free Preview button.

Again we see same login screen, but this time we are registered users. Let us enter our login details.

Logging In…

Click on Go! Button.

Again we are back to Nirjana Vaaradhi page. Let us re-click on Download Free Preview button.

We see something like above. Let us save and open this PDF file.

We have 15 pages. Let us read it. The story looks interesting. Fonts looks good. Quality of pdf is good.

We are sure can buy this book. Let us go ahead and buy.

Back to Nirjana Vaaradhi book.

Let us click on Buy eBook: Rs. 90 button.

Recharging Kinige Account Balance

We got something in red. Error. What did it say? You do not have enough balance in your account to do the requested action! You can recharge at by clicking here. Let us click on the link and see what all options we have.

OK. We have three options.

First one ==> Kinige gift coupon! If some one from Kinige community sends us a giftcoupon we can recharge our account using this first option.

Recharge using payment gateway (Credit card/ Debit Card/ Net Banking/ Cash Card) ==> This is for Indians who can pay using several options. Just enter amount in Recharge amount and submit details to pay. (This is something similar to how we pay to our Online Railway reservation)

There is third option. This is for Non-Indians. Pay 10$ using paypal and get ₹ 450 balance in your kinige amount.

Choose the option which is convenient to you and recharge your Kinige account.

Once recharge is done, we can go back to our book buying business.

I recharged my account with some amount. Now let us visit Nirjana Vaaradhi again.
