Firstly Thanks for downloading one of our ebooks! Here’s some tips and common problems:
Reading The Kindle Edition
If you don’t have a kindle reader, you can still open kindle files using one of the amazon kindle reader apps (for PC, apple, android etc)
You can download them here. However if this is the case, we recommend using our epub reader or PDF editions instead – these are much easier to handle than kindle.
Copying/Downloading to a Kindle Device
Here’s a tutorial explaining how to copy a kindle book from a PC to a Kindle
If you downloaded the ebook directly onto your kindle from the download link (i.e. not onto your PC first), you may also need to move the file to the “books” directory.
Emailing Your Ebook to a Kindle Device
You can also email ebooks (PDF, and mobi format etc) to your kindle, please see this amazon help page on how to do this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/sendtokindle/email
Copying The Kindle File To an Ipad or Iphone
You may need to copy the kindle file from your PC to your ipad/iphone using itunes for the Kindle application to be able to read the ebook.
Please see this tutorial.
Opening a Mobi File on OS X
The Amazon Kindle Mac application does not easily allow for importing *.mobi files not purchased through Amazon. There is no easy way to import files. However, if you drag the files to the application icon when it is open, it will read the file.
Reading The Epub Edition
You’ll need an epub ebook reader, or an app for reading Epub format ebooks if you are using a PC, smart phone or tablet.
If you need an app:

If you’re having trouble opening or reading the PDF file, try using a different application for opening the PDF.
If you’re having trouble with any format, we can swap it for another format, e.g. exchange your kindle copy for a PDF copy etc. Just let us know.
