Since both the PDF and the EPUB option result in an ACSM file being downloaded, you'll need to turn the ACSM file into a readable EPUB/PDF using Adobe Digital Editions. And here's the detailed guide about how to convert ACSM to EPUB/PDF.

Note: In order to transfer Google Play books to Kobo/Nook ereader, please make sure to create an Adobe ID with the same email you used to register Kobo/Nook.

You can read books from Google Play on most e-readers except Amazon Kindle devices. You’ll need to download them to your computer and transfer them to the e-reader. To do this, download the Adobe Digital Editions app.

Note: Your purchased e-book can only be associated with a single Adobe ID.

1. Authorize your computer and eReader with ADE.

After downloading the ACSM file, then create an Adobe ID with the same email you used to register Kobo/Nook to authorize computer. Or you can't transfer Google Play book to your ereader.

Plug in your Kobo/Nook ereader with USB. And your ereader will be displayed in the left side page when you run ADE. First, click the device, then click the gear icon to select authorize device.
