EPub files work on every e-reader or other device with the exception of Kindle. Mobi files are formatted specifically to work on Kindle.
In order to access the digital library in your account, follow these instructions:
If you are using iOS (for iPad/iPhone), you should be able to click on the download link for the ePub file, select ‘Open in iBooks’ and start reading.
For Android devices, you will need to install a free eReader app.
For Nook/ Kobo you will need to download the file to your computer, then connect your device to your computer with a USB cable, and drag the file to your device’s books or documents folder.
If you’re using a Kindle or the Kindle app, you can also use your ‘Send-to-Kindle’ email address ending in kindle.com, to wirelessly deliver your eBook to your Kindle account.
Please note, for Kindle users, we are currently only supplying ePubs through the Pluto site. To read your eBook on your Kindle, you will first need to convert the file to Mobi. There are a number of free desktop e-readers, such as Calibre, which allow you to quickly make this conversion.
It is Pluto’s policy to bundle a free eBook with every print book ordered, however there will be some occasions where an eBook is not available: if the book you have ordered was published prior to 2012 it is possible that no eBook exists. This may also be the case if a book has been published only in hardback. If you don’t see the ‘eBook’ format selection button next to the red ‘Buy Now’ button on the product page then it means no eBook exists.
