Due to the number of electronic devices on the market, we are not able to offer instructions on how to transfer electronic files to your device. However, this information should be available on the website of your device’s manufacturer.
The two most common devices for digital books are Kindle (.mobi) and Nook (.epub). Most devices will recognize the .epub format, however you should find out which type is compatible with your device before making a purchase.
If you own a Nook or a Kindle, you can find information on what file types you need and how to transfer them to your device at the following links:
A Zip file is a file that contains the components from your purchases that are “zipped up” or compressed into a single file.
Windows, OS X, and Linux all come with programs to open zipped files, or you can use free programs to access them.
In Windows XP or newer, Mac OS X, and Ubuntu Linux, you can double-click the ZIP file and it will open in a new window. You can then copy the contents of your purchase to any location you desire.
Right-click the ZIP file. In Windows and Linux, you can right-click the Zip file and select “Extract All…” or “Extract Here”. Extract All will allow you to set a location for the extracted files to go, and Extract Here will un-compress the folder and leave the files in the same location as the ZIP file.
Almost all computers have a program built in to open zipped files and since the ZIP format is open, there are a variety of free software programs available. Some of the more popular free options include:
Once you have installed your new compression software, right-click (Command-click on Mac) the ZIP file and select “Open With…”. Find your compression software in the list of programs and use it to open the file.
