Note: Our store has changed. Logins and purchases from before Sept. 3, 2020 are no longer available. If you have a problem with an ebook purchase from the old store, please contact our office.
The following tips are for the new store.

 

CHOOSE THE RIGHT eBOOK READER

There are many choices of eBook readers on the market. The most popular are Kindle by Amazon and iBooks by Apple. But which one is right for your device? Here are some suggestions.

  • On a PC: Windows does not come with an eBook reader pre-installed. If your PC does not already have a default reader, there are plenty you can find for free on the web. Our customers have had success with the following apps:

    • Google Play Books 

      • Works well with our ebook (file type .epub)​

      • Web based - simply follow the link above and login to your Google account​​

      • Upload the file you purchase from us to add it to your library

      • Access from any web browser, Android or IOS app

    • Kindle App for PC

  • On a Mac:

    • iBooks is the simple choice. It comes with the operating system and is the default reader for your Mac.​

    • Google Play Books will also work through your browser on any operating system

  • On a Kindle: Purchase the Kindle version of Tools for Teaching and load it onto your Kindle device or into the app.

  • On an iPad: Purchase the eBook version of Tools for Teaching from your iPad. When it asks you to "Open in..." choose iBooks.

  • On a Nook or Kobo: Purchase the eBook version of Tools for Teaching and load it onto your device or into the app.

 

CHOOSE THE RIGHT eBOOK FORMAT FOR YOUR READER

  • Our store has two versions of each eBook for you to choose from.

    • One is formatted exclusively for the Kindle and the Kindle App (file type: ".mobi").

    • The other version is compatible with all other readers - including iBooks for Apple iOS devices, Kobo, Nook, and others (file type: ".epub").

    • Please choose the right format for your reader.

    • The Kindle App will read the Kindle version of Tools for Teaching on non-kindle devices. (example: If you want to use the "Kindle App for iOS" to read Tools for Teaching on your iPad, you should order the Kindle version of the book.)

 

DOWNLOADING YOUR PURCHASE

  • When you purchase the Tools for Teaching eBook you will receive a confirmation email from info@fredjones.com with a link to download your file.

  • This email is your only link to download the file. You cannot log back into the store and retrieve a previous purchase.

DOWNLOADING TIPS

  • Make note of where the file has downloaded or been saved

  • You may need to manually open or import the file into your reader app or library

 

I'VE DOWNLOADED THE FILE, BUT I GET AN ERROR THAT THE FILE CAN'T BE OPENED

  • This usually means that you do not have an eBook reader installed on your computer. In order to read .epub or .mobi files, you will need the right app. Please see "CHOOSE THE RIGHT eBOOK READER" above and install the right app for you.
