Information to Help You Select an eBook Format
Our eBooks are readable on all the major devices because we stick with the industry-standard formats. We have a format that will work with your Kindle, Nook, Sony and many other devices.

To PDF or not to PDF? - What file format should you choose??
  • Reading on your computer, laptop or similar? Choose PDF. This is because PDFs display the pages of a book exactly as they were designed, so it looks just like the original book. With other formats, pages can look different sometimes radically different when displayed. Visit Adobe for the latest version and information.

  • Have a handheld device specifically designed to read books? Then choose something other than PDF. Small screens especially don't fare well with PDF.

  • A large number of readers and devices work with MOBI format (.prc files). The Mobi User Forum has detailed information and links to the right downloads for different devices. Our MOBI formats are, at a minimum, compatible with:
    • Kindle - To transfer a Mobi .prc file, connect your Kindle to your computer with the USB cable. If you are using a PC, your Kindle will appear as a removable storage drive in Windows explorer. If you are using a Mac, your Kindle will appear as a drive in Mac OS Finder. Copy the .prc file to the documents folder on your Kindle.
    • Kindle To use a PDF file, send the PDF directly to your Kindle via your @kindle address or drag and drop the file from your computer to your Kindle. Your Kindle must be connected via USB.

There is a growing list of devices that use ePub, including:
    • Your computer, netbook, laptop, anything running Windows or MacOS.
    • Nook by Barnes and Noble. The Nook will also read PDFs. To transfer the ePub or PDF file, connect your nook via a USB cable to your computer. Copy the ePub or PDF file to the my documents folder on your nook.

    • iPad and other Apple devices, using iBook app. The easiest way to get the ePub file to your Apple device is to use the iBooks application available for free from the Apple App Store. Attach your Apple device to your computer and launch iTunes. Once iTunes starts, drag your ePub file from your computer to your iTunes library.
