NOTE: Recently some of our customers have had trouble opening MOBI files with the Kindle for PC reader. If you encounter this problem, try downloading and reinstalling Kindle for PC.
“But I have a Kindle or a Nook dedicated ebook reader! Don’t I have to buy my ebooks from their stores?”
Not at all — You can buy and read BVC eBooks on your dedicated ebook reader. Once you’ve downloaded a BVC ebook to your computer you can copy it to your ereader, either by emailing it to the device, or by “sideloading” it. Sideloading means to attach your reading device to the computer with its USB cable and drag and drop the ebook into the device. Of course the details may vary from device to device. Be sure you’ve chosen the correct file format for your reading gizmo.
“But I don’t have a Kindle, a Nook, or any dedicated ebook reader!”
You can read BVC ebooks on your computer, PDA, and most smartphones, as well as on a Kindle, Nook, Sony eReader, or other dedicated ebook reader. Kindle has a Kindle app for PC and a Kindle app for Mac. Nook has apps for iPhone, Android, iPad, PC, and Mac. Adobe Digital Editions will display EPUB on your computer. Mobipocket Reader gives you access to the MOBI/PRC format. (Note that when you download an app, you may have to install it on your system.)
Calibre allows you to read DRM-free ebooks (such as those available at BVC) on your PC or Mac, and also organizes your ebook library and converts from one format to another, giving you more flexibility with your reading choices.
Book View Cafe ebooks are DRM-free and are available in EPUB format (compatible with Nook and Sony eReader) and in MOBI format for your Kindle. Some ebooks are also available in PDF versions.
