How to download ePub files
Our ePub files are designed for Apple devices, NOOK and Kobo, but there are also apps like Aldiko you can now use to open ePub files on Android.
Apple devices (iPad, iPhone etc)
When downloading directly to your iPad or iPhone, make sure you have an ePub reader installed – we recommend the free iBooks app. From the download page, simply download the file and open it in your reader (you may be prompted to “open in”). If your iPad is synced to your computer, you can pull it across using iTunes.
Download the file to your computer, then connect the Nook with the USB cable. Nook will then show where hard drives and other USB drives show (under My Computer on Windows or on the desktop on Mac). Double-click on the NOOK drive to open it. You can then drag and drop the downloaded ebook from your computer to the “my documents” folder or to the root of the NOOK.

We recommend using Adobe Digital Editions to add ePub files to your Kobo. Connect your eReader to your computer using the included USB cable. A prompt will appear on the eReader screen – tap Connect. Then right-click the book file and click Open With. Click Adobe Digital Editions. Adobe Digital Editions should start automatically and open the book. In Adobe Digital Editions, click the Library icon. Select your new book and drag it to the Kobo eReader bookshelf (listed on the left side under Bookshelves).

How to download Mobi files
These files are recommended for use on Kindle devices (or the Kindle App for iOS or Android). If you want to get more technical, they contain digital eBooks that have been saved in the Mobipocket binary eBook format.
Transferring Your Files by Email
You can email your Kindle files as attachments, and they’ll be added to the Documents section of your Kindle. To set this up, log into Amazon.com and then go to Your Account: Manage Your Kindle: Personal Document Settings. You can email your Kindle files as attachments*. The files must be in one of the supported formats, and they’ll be added to the Documents section of your Kindle. To set this up, log into Amazon.com and then go to Your Account–>Manage Your Kindle–>Personal Document Settings.
*Please note that this function only works if the file is under the 50 MB size limit set by Kindle. If the file is above this size, you’ll need to either download the file directly from the download page through your device or transfer the file another way.
Transferring Your Files by USB
If you use a micro-usb cable and connect it to your computer, you can transfer files to and from your Kindle just like it was an external hard drive. Place any .mobi files in the Books folder, and place .pdf and other formats in the Documents folder. Once you’ve added your files, you may need to restart the Kindle to get it to recognize your new books.
Transferring Using Dropbox
Navigate to your eBook file and rather than just tapping to open it, you’ll want to select the triangle to the right of the file name. next, tap Export. Choose Save to SD Card (your Kindle doesn’t actually have an SD card, but this gets you to the internal storage space). Then select Books, and finish by tapping Export. Once you’ve done this, you should restart your Kindle Fire.
