Can I read a book on my Verizon Nexus 7 without connecting to wifi (and incurring charges?)

I just got this, and ran up almost $200.00 in Verizon charges from reading ebooks. How do I avoid this???

You can download ebooks to your tablet for reading offline. But the data rates for downloading the books still apply unless connected to wifi. Free Wifi is available at most fast food stores, libraries, and hotels. You can use these places to connect and download ebooks then read them at home.
It is also a good idea to turn on airplane mode whenever you do not want your device to use data as other applications (System updates, facebook, amazon apps, etc) will also use data even when they are not open on your screen, many will continue to run in the background.

Well, I think you should change the battery of your tablet PC. You must have charged the tablet for more than enough time several times. so the battery is damaged. or, the battery must be used for a long time!!!!!!

My lad dropped his Google nexus 7 and it has stopped working , where can we send it to be repaired

Contact ASUS for a listing of authorised repairers for the Asus Nexus 7 or it may be listed in the user manual or in a separate document included in the original box.

If you have one of the cheaper basic models it will most likely not be worth repairing as it will cost around the same to replace it and possibly less depending on which model you buy and the amount of damage. It is difficult for repairers of these items to quote on repair costs because they often don't know what the internal problems are until they run tests and dismantle it. Also if the damage is not repairable you will incur a service charge in any event.
If it is one of the less expensive models I would not bother with a repair but buy a new one and wear the loss.

How do I delete a book once I have read it from the nexus 7

What App are you using? Kindle or Play Books? I'm not sure about Kindle but in Play Books you tap on the books settings and select "Delete from Library". The settings tab is a line of three vertical dots on the lower right side of the books icon.
Hope this helps.

Make sure device is fully charged. Try connecting to an open wifi access point (without password) to eliminate possibility of using the wrong password for a secure connection.

Ebook will not download to tablet

Could you tell me the name of your tablet?

As I known, nearly all of the tablet can download ebooks only by wifi connected.

For instance, I can read Google books purchased from Google Play Books on Nexus 7. And I can also read Kindle books on my Nexus 7, too.
