Step 4: Enter email one more time
Step 5: Disregard the other steps and click done.
The BorrowBox App allows you to download eBooks and eAudiobooks directly onto your smart device:

You can download eBooks and eAudiobooks directly to your PC or Apple Mac computer:
If downloading eBooks to a computer, Adobe Digital Editions will be required, and you will need to create an Adobe ID. On launch of ADE click on Help > Authorize Computer. On the following screen choose Adobe ID from the dropdown menu and enter your Adobe ID and password. You will now be able to download titles from the BorrowBox site directly to your computer.
eAudiobooks can be downloaded from the BorrowBox site to your computer and listened to on any MP3 compatible media manager or media device.
The BorrowBox App is supported on Kindle Fire and available to download from the Amazon App store. Other Kindle Readers are not compatible with BorrowBox as applications are locked by Amazon. BorrowBox is also available on any eReader that supports Adobe Digital Editions. A comprehensive list of eReaders that support AdobeDigital Editions can be found here: http://blogs.adobe.com/aemmobile/supported-devices
