Frequently Asked Questions
How to I get my digital book on my Kindle account?
Once you have made your digital book purchase through this site, you will receive a .zip file with two (2) versions of the book: an *.epub file as well as a *.mobi file. Please see specific instructions below depending on the device or app you use to read digital books:
For Kindle devices and devices using the Kindle App, you will need to e-mail the *.mobi file as an attachment to your "Send-to-Kindle" email address (typically [yourname]@kindle.com--visit Amazon's Manage your Devices page at Manage Your Kindle to identify yours). You may need to manage your settings on your Amazon account using the above links to receive the *.mobi file on your Kindle device(s). Once you send the file to this account, the book will appear in your library within just a few minutes. If you email the *.epub file to your Send-to-Kindle email address, it will not be delivered to your Kindle Library.
For iBooks and Apple devices, you simply need to open the *.epub file in the iBooks app on your desktop computer. If your iBooks app is linked to iCloud, you will be able to download the book on all devices connected to the same iCloud account by opening iBooks and selecting the title.
For all other eReader devices, please see your manufacturer's specifications and instructions for sending personal documents and files to your device. In general, *.epub files will be compatible with all eReaders except for Amazon Kindle (see above note for Kindle devices). You may also reach out to us through our CONTACT page for assistance.
