When I clicked the link in the email nothing happened. Why isn't it working?

Make sure that your computer’s pop up blocker is turned off when trying to use Internet Explorer, Google Chrome or Firefox to download your book. Otherwise it can stop the download. If you don’t know how to turn of the pop up blocker please go to this link.

Once I am on the "Choose your E-book version" page, how do I know which version to choose?

Under the versions listed on the page (Epub, Mobi or PDF) there are devices listed. Find your device and choose the corresponding file type. Choose wisely, you can only download one file type with your BookStub!

When you save the file to your computer be sure to take note of the location that you saved it in, you will need to know this to read it from your desktop or to load it onto another device! Check the questions below for more information on how to work with BookStubs on specific devices, each one is different.

Note: Just because you are downloading the file to your desktop first in order to load it to another device does not mean you should choose the PDF version in all cases. Choose the version that corresponds with the device that you will ultimately read the book from.

I want to read the book I downloaded on my desktop computer. Why can't I open the file?

In order to view an ePublished title users need to have a reader installed on their desktop. Popular readers for desktop computers are as follows and can be downloaded at the corresponding links.

Note: iOS Maverick 10.9 and up has iBooks that will download the book directly into your library so you will not need a reader. Click on the PDF option to download the file to your computer. It will open in the reader program on your computer.
