How do I get to the open eTextBook view?

Upon logging into Bookshelf Online, the first view will be your Bookshelf Library view:

You can select the eTextBook you need to study by clicking or tapping (if you have a touchscreen device) on the eTextBook's cover, selecting "Continue Reading" if you have previously opened the eTextBook, or "Open Book" if you have not. In your My Books collection, display the "Open Book" option on the cover of the eTextBook if you navigate your cursor over the eTextBook covers.
