What’s the difference between the ebooks purchased directly from Light Publications and those downloaded from the stores at Kindle/Nook/iBookstore/Google/Play?
- You’ll have to “install” the ebooks yourself, but this isn’t difficult. Follow the menu links above or below.
- Some of the ebooks from us are specially “autographed” editions!
- Rather than sending a slice of your money to gigantic multinational services, we get the entire amount, which because we’re a small publisher makes a difference.

How do I read my ebook on my… • iPad • Kindle • Nook • Kobo • Mac, PC or Linux
I don’t have an ereader or pad, but I do want to read ebooks on the computer or laptop (Mac, PC or Linux).
No problem. There are two free apps you can use on any computer: Amazon’s Kindle’s Free Reading App or Calibre. Both work. Amazon’s App is simpler. Calibre is more flexible. All purchased ebooks can be saved on your computer and transferred later to a pad or ebook reader.
Which format ebook is best for me?
- Kindle and Kindle App users use .MOBI
- Everybody else use .EPUB
Where do the files go when they download?
On a computer: it depends on how your browser is configured. Try looking in the “Downloads” folder. If you’ve downloaded the ebook in the browser window on your pad, then be sure to open it in an ebook reader before closing the browser window.
On an iPad or other Device: Most downloads aren’t saved in the browser. You MUST opened them in your reader (or audio) application.
