What file format will work on my device?

  • .mobi = Mobipocket Format is for: Amazon Kindle, Mobile Phones, Blackberry, Palm, IRex, ILiad, Hanlin, BeBook and other mobile devices.
  • .epub = The ePub Format is for the Sony Reader, Nook, BeBook, Bookeen, COOL-ER, Hanlin eReader, Hanvon, iPad, and many other ebook readers.
  • .pdf = PDF Format is for: PC's, Macs, iPhone, and Printing. You'll need Acrobat Reader to open .pdfs.
  • .mp3 = Audio files (we do have a few). The ones that we have are iTunes ready, but will work on any mp3 player. Each chapter is a separate file, and we .zip them all up to make the file download smaller.

How do I download your ebooks to Android?

QR code for installing Aldiko

To read .epub books on Android devices, you will need a free app like Aldiko. If you already have Aldiko installed, then just tap an .epub link and touch "Complete action using Aldiko." If you don't have Aldiko installed yet, use this QR code or download from Google Play.

How do I put your ebooks on a Nook?

kobo

You can browse to our site on your Nook, and from there, click on any .epub link. Or you can:

  1. Using the USB cord, plug your Nook into a computer.
  2. On the computer, go to the book page and choose an ebook that has a book in epub format.
  3. Download the .epub and save the file to your computer or desktop.
  4. Take a look at the file and make sure it still says ".epub." If the browser has changed it to .zip, change the extension back to .epub.
  5. When you plug your Nook into the PC, a new drive letter should appear in "My Computer," or on the desktop for a Mac. Inside this drive is a folder named "My Documents."
  6. Copy or drag your .epub file into that folder.
  7. Unplug your Nook and search for New Content (this will refresh the list).
  8. Your new book should show up in the My Documents folder.

If this process didn't work for you, you may need to use Adobe Digital Editions to put books on your Nook. Watch this video to find out how.

How do I put your ebooks on a Kindle?

You can browse to our site on your Kindle, and from there, click on any .mobi link. The kindle will put the file in "Downloads" but in order to open it, you need the .mobi in "Books". You will need to connect to a computer to move the files. (Or try emailing the book to yourself using your Amazon email address, that sometimes works.)

Or you can:

  1. Using the USB cord, plug your Kindle into a computer.
  2. On the computer, choose an ebook that has a book in mobi format.
  3. Download the .mobi and save the file to your computer or desktop. Remember where you put it!
  4. When you plug your Kindle into the PC, a new drive letter should appear in "My Computer," or on the desktop for a Mac. Inside this drive is a folder named "Documents."
  5. Copy or drag your .mobi file into that folder and when you unplug your Kindle it will be available on the Menu.(You may need to sync.)

How do I put your Mobi ebooks on my iPad Kindle app? 

Connect the mobile device to a computer with the USB cord. Launch iTunes on your computer. Click on the name of the mobile device in the left hand column and from the main iTunes window select the Apps Tab. Scroll down to the bottom of the window to the section called File Sharing. Scroll down the left hand column until you see Kindle in the list. Click once on the name Kindle and look at the column on the right hand side. You can add books and pdf documents into this column either by dragging them into the list or by using the "Add" button. The books/pdfs will appear instantly in Kindle on the mobile device.

To transfer the file wirelessly, you will email it to your Amazon email address. Try these instructions.

Can I put your books on my website?
