  1. What is an e-book or downloadable book?
    An e-book is a book in the form of a digital file which can be accessed instantly when purchased and can be read on computer screens, e-book readers, iPhones, iPads and other hand-held reading devices.
  2. Which format to buy?
    Most of our e-books are available in three different formats, with the extra option of buying all three formats combined in one package. The formats are:
    • Adobe PDF (which can be read with Adobe Reader or Adobe Digital Editions software, obtainable free of charge from and PDFs retain the formatting of the original printed editions.
    • ePub (which can be read with Adobe Digital Editions software on computers and is used by many e-book readers such as the Nook, Kobo, Sony and iPad). ePub is a standard e-book format with flowable text, so that the reader can choose font size, page size etc and the document will re-flow accordingly.

    • Mobipocket is the format to buy for a KIndle (see for more help). You can also transfer the file to your Kindle via your Kindle email address. Your Kindle email address can be found by visiting Once you have signed into your Amazon account there will be an option in the top right-hand corner called 'Manage your Kindle'. Click on this and then select the 'personal document settings' which will appear down the left-hand side.
