Digital Download Instructions

In addition to physical products like Books, CDs, and DVDs. We also sell digital products such as E-Books and MP3 files.

These "Digital Products" may require a few extra steps in order to use them successfully, and this page is designed to help you solve any problems you might have when purchasing one of these resources from our website.


The E-Books we sell are in .epub or .mobi file formats that require an e-book reader in order to translate and display the appropriate content on your device. When purchasing any of these resources, be sure to select the file format for your particular device or e-book reader software.

The .epub file format can be viewed in iBooks on an iOS device. While the .mobi file format can be viewed on Kindle devices. However, if you install the Kindle software on your Apple mobile device. You can also view the .mobi format within the Kindle app as well.

MP3 Files

Unlike E-Book files, MP3 files are universally understood by just about any device. However, sometimes we archive or "zip" some of our MP3 files when there is more than one MP3 file in a particular product. This is because we can only give you one download link per file purchased.

Unfortunately, this could cause a problem when downloading zipped files directly onto mobile devices that don't understand the zip file format. To avoid this from happening, first download the file onto a computer that can un-zip the file, revealing the individual MP3 files. From there you are free to transfer the un-zipped files to your mobile device or import them into your MP3 software of choice.
