Frequently Asked Questions
How do I “unzip” and read the e-books on my computer?
After you’ve downloaded the zip file, simply double click on it. This will open a folder with the list of bundle files within (one file for each e-book and one for the coupon codes). Reading the e-books on your computer is as simple as opening Adobe Reader or Acrobat. If you already have this software on your computer, you can double click each e-book file to open automatically.
How do I “unzip” and read these e-books on my mobile device?
A variety of apps already have the functionality to unzip and open PDF files built right in. If you have the Dropbox app or the Google Drive app installed on your smartphone or tablet, these are good examples of apps that can “do it all”.
You can also unzip the folder on your computer and then transfer some or all of the PDF files to your device using your preferred method. You can e-mail the files to yourself, put them in your Dropbox, use another file managing app, or drag and drop the files onto your Android or Kindle device when it’s connected to a computer). You can download directly onto your mobile device and unzip using a file management app like WinZip.
Once the PDF files are on your mobile device, there are also several options for opening them to read your new library of e-books.
The Adobe app is available for Android, Kindle and Apple devices. Once the PDF files are on your device, you’ll be able to open them in the Adobe app.
How do I add these e-books to my iBooks app?
If you have an Apple device, you can sync the PDF file to your device by opening it in iTunes. Be sure to set your device to sync books. Once the file is on your device, you can open it in iBooks, which comes with all Apple devices. If you transfer the PDF files to your apple device, newer devices will automatically save the PDF to iBooks. On older devices, tap the screen to bring up a file menu and click “Open in…” then “iBooks” in the upper right of the screen. If you use an app to unzip the file after downloading directly to your apple device, the app will give you an option to “Open in” iBooks.
How do I add these e-books to my kindle reader or kindle app?
Whether you use a native Kindle or either the Android or Apple apps, the easiest way to transfer the bundle e-books to your kindle is to first unzip the folder on your computer and then email the files to your Kindle. To find your Kindle e-mail address, go to “Manage Your Devices” when logged into Amazon and locate the device you want to send the file to. Look at that device’s tab to locate its unique email address. Send the PDF file to that address in an email! The next time your device is connected to the internet, it will download the file. The e-book can now be found under “Personal Documents” on your Amazon account or “Docs” on your Kindle.
