Upload vs Download

When I was reading the book Laura Marlin Mysteries: Dead Man's Cove, I noticed a wrong usage in the book on page 144. The author Lauren St John wrote, "as she waited for the document to upload, Laura called Skye again." In that sentence, "upload" should be "download." In the computer sense, when infomation travels from the Internet to your computer, it is called a download. When information travels from your computer back to the Internet, it is called upload.
This nice little image will help you remember that:
