eBook Download Instructions

Ebooks are normally available in two different file formats, either an EPUB file or a MOBI file. Which file you download depends on what kind of device you use to read eBooks. EPUB files can be read on a wide variety of devices including Sony Readers, Nooks, and Apple devices. MOBI files are compatible with Kindle products. Neither file is prinatable, and we do not offer eBooks in PDF form. Printing eBooks is a violation of our copyright policy.

If you would like to read your new eBooks on your computer, there are several free applications for your desktop that will allow you to do so. Use the search term "read ebooks on computer" within your internet browser and it will return with several choices. We recommend Kindle for PC.

PLEASE NOTE: eBooks are not returnable, so please make sure you have the right product in your cart before purchasing! Once you have paid for your order, you will receive an email with a web link good for 48 hours. Here you will have the option of downloading an EPUB or MOBI file of the eBook. To limit sharing, this link is only good for one IP address, so we recommend that you download to your computer first, then move the file to your device. Downloading directly to a handheld device may result in error or loss of the file later on.
