Formats

You can read our eBooks on eReaders, PCs, Macs and most smartphones and tablets, including iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android and Windows Phone.
So, you don’t have to buy an eReader (eBook reading device) in order to read e-books.

Note that if you wish to read one of our eBooks on an Amazon Kindle you have to purchase the eBook from an Amazon web site – just follow the link on the book details page.

In all other cases you can purchase and download the eBook from this web site and all you need to read it is suitable software on your computer or an app on your phone or tablet. Much of this software is free to download.

Whatever device you read on we have a format that works.

Further technical details about common file formats

File formats are often referred to and identified by the letters used for their file extensions, so that’s how we’re listing them here. Although there are many file formats, most devices support one or more of the following:

  • epub – The International Digital Publishing Forums’ EPUB standard. Widely adopted and supported by many e-reader devices. Click here to learn more about EPUB.
  • pdf – Adobe Portable Document Format. This has a fixed page format so is not ideal for small reading devices (e-readers), but it displays well on computer screens and tablets. Widely adopted for digital documents (not just e-books) and works on the vast majority of PCs, laptops and tablets.
  • azw – Amazon’s proprietary file format. Only available from Amazon for their Kindle e-readers. (There is actually more than one Kindle format because Amazon are progressively upgrading the capabilities of their e-readers.)
