How do I add an ebook to my device?

Use the instructions below to add an ebook to your particular device for reading.

A) Purchase the correct eBook format for your device.
There are two ereader formats: A format for Amazon Kindle devices (.mobi) and a format for all other devices (.epub).
Each of our titles are available in either epub or mobi formats. Choose mobi if you have a Kindle device, and choose epub if you have any other type of device (iOS device (iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch) or Android (Samsung, HTC, etc.) or Sony.
When your purchase is complete, you will see a screen with the download link, and also receive an email with the same download link. The email offers the easiest way to add an ebook to your device.

iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch
