Payment is made through PayPal (what is PayPal?). PayPal will give you the option to pay by credit card if you don’t have a PayPal account. After you complete the payment process your browser will display a “Thank You” page containing a download link so you can immediately download the eBook to your computer. If the link is not “clickable” copy and paste it into you browser window. You will also receive an email receipt that also contains a download link. Download links are valid for 48 hours, so download the book straight away.
When the download starts you will be presented either with a download window or the book will appear in your browser window. In either case you must save the book pdf file to a location of your choice on your hard drive.
The Best Way to View our eBooks
Tablet editions of our eBooks are specifically formatted for the iPad. They also look good on similar-sized tablets and on your computer screen using Adobe Reader. They are useable on an iPhone, especially the iPhone 4.
A better choice for Smartphones is our Mobile editions that have been reformatted for smaller screens. The Mobile edition will work with any reader that reads pdf files such as iBooks for the iPhone or ezPDF Reader for Android devices, providing the reader supportss bookmarks and hyperlinks.
iBooks on iPad
The best reading and navigating experience is using iBooks on an iPad. Bookmarks and links work well and the slick page navigation slider at the bottom of the page makes moving around the book very easy.
Getting eBooks onto iPad or iPhone
Open iTunes on your computer and Select File -> Add to Library. Select one or more files and click Choose. Then select Books from your iTunes Library. You should see the books you just added. Right-click on the newly added PDF and select Get Info if you wish to add information such as authors name. Connect your device to your computer and sync the books you have added using either All Books or Selected Books options.
Tips for Using Adobe Reader
For the best viewing experience using Adobe Reader, set the Page Display to either Single Page or Two-Up. Do not use the “Continuous” options. If using Two-Up, check Show Cover page During Two-Up. You may also want to go into Adobe Reader Preferences and set Page Display to Fit Page.
GoodReader is a good alternative to iBooks that allows you to annotate and bookmark. Using links is not as precise as in iBooks and the vertical page navigator at the side of the page does not work as well as the iBooks page navigator.
GoodReader itself has a number of ways to get content onto your device that are well explained in their help files. The easiest way to upload our eBooks is to connect you device to your computer and open iTunes if it doesn’t automatically open. When syncing has finished:
– Select your device and click on the Apps tab on the menu bar at the top.
– Scroll down to the bottom of the screen. You should see GoodReader listed among your apps that can transfer files between the device and you computer.
– Select GoodReader and click on the Add button. Navigate to the eBook file that you downloaded and choose it. iTunes will copy the file to your device.
You can also get books into GoodReader without connecting to your computer by using your browser and WiFi. See Goodreader instructions.
