I actually found out how to do it.

Suppose you borrowed the Moby Dick book and added it to the ADE library.
It will be downloaded and saved as "moby_dick.pdf" in the "Documents/My Digital Editions" folder.

Simply make a copy(in another folder) of "moby_dick.pdf.annot", where your annotations are, rename it as  "moby_dick-1.pdf.annot" and move it back to the Annotations folder. When asked if you want to overwrite the existing file, select yes.

 

This will put your old annotations into the new copy of the book.

 

This worked for me. I hope it solves your problem too. 🙂
