How to load eBooks on your eReader

So you've purchased an eBook and downloaded it to your computer.

Now how do you get that file onto your Kindle or iPad or Nook?

Here are some tips...

How do move my eBook from my Mac to my iPad or iPhone?

First, make sure you've downloaded the iBooks app to your device. It's free. Next, I find the easiest way to get your book on your device is to email it to yourself as an attachment. Then you go to your email account on your iPad and click on the book attachment. It will be automatically imported into iBooks. Here's a video does a great job of explaining how to do this as well as other ways to move books to your iPad.

How do move my eBook from my computer to my Kindle?

There are a number of ways to do this. If you have a USB cable with your Kindle you can connect your Kindle and drag the book from your computer over to the Kindle. Amazon also provides software you can use to wirelessly send your book to your Kindle. Amazon provides a number of options here. We prefer to use the "Send to Kindle" software for Mac or for PC. You simply download it and then login using your Amazon account.

We find this video does a great job of explaining how to load up your Nook.

Do your eBooks use DRM?

Some publishers use DRM to create password-protected books. We find that DRM doesn't work and, worse, drives readers crazy. So none of our books use DRM. This means you can download the eBook and simply load it into your reader. We trust that readers will respect our authors by keeping the digital books to themselves.

What's an ".epub" file?

An file with the suffix of .epub means that it is an eBook -- one that will work on the iPad/iPhone, Nook, or Kobo. You can also view this file using Kindle software for your PC or Mac.

What's a ".mobi" file?

An file with the suffix of .mobi means that it is an eBook -- one that will work on a Kindle. This file format is specific to the Kindle and Kindle software.
