Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need an eBook reader to read one of your eBooks?
Not at all. Many of the eBook providers listed here provide their own free software which can be used to read eBooks on your computer or on an iPad, tablet, or Smartphone. For example, Amazon’s Kindle for PC software enables you to read any Kindle book directly on your computer. Additionally, Kindle apps are available that allow you to easily read a Kindle book on your iPad, tablet, or smartphone.

CourseSmart offers apps that enable you to read your eBook on mobile devices.
How do I determine which format to purchase?
Corwin eBooks are available in a variety of formats. If you have an eReader, the easiest option is to purchase the format type associated with your reader (Amazon/Kindle, Barnes and Noble/Nook). If you are using a tablet, PC or smartphone to read your books, there are a number of apps that import eBooks, enabling you to purchase your format of choice.
Many eReaders, such as the Kindle and Kindle apps, use a flowable text format to display your eBook (known as ePUB). This allows the reader to adjust the text size. Books with many tables and graphics may not display well in this format. A PDF-based format maintains the look of the print book and may be a better option for books with numerous tables, figures, and graphic elements.
