Questions about reading, using, and accessing your new eBook:


Can I read my eBook on a Kindle?
ONLY if the item purchased from our site is called "eBook (Kindle)" -- Our ePub and PDF ebooks can not be transfered to your Kindle. Additionally we sell a large number of our titles on Amazon.com that are Kindle ready.

Can I read my eBook on a Nook?
eBooks managed with the Adobe Digital Editions software may also be installed on popular eReaders such as the Barnes & Noble Nook. For more information about installing your eBook on your eReader, please watch this nookTalk video.

Can I read my eBook on an Apple iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch or Android smart phone?
To read Mountaineers Books eBooks on your iOS or Android device, download the free app, BlueFire Reader. Once the app is installed you will be able to read any of our DRM protected eBooks—including books from other publishers, most online book stores, and leading libraries around the world. For those who have a free Dropbox account (file sharing software) you can easily move our PDF ebooks from your home computer to your Dropbox account, and then open them in iBooks on your iPad. Read the instructions here.

For detailed instructions regarding transferring your eBook to your iOS or Android device, please read the excellent write-up with step-by-step instructions about transferring files to Bluefire Reader at the Dear Author website.

Can I print an eBook (and other digital rights management issues)?
Yes. Mountaineers Books places no restrictions on any eBook we sell directly that would prevent printing. Generally, if you plan to print the pages of your eBook, we recommend you purchase the PDF version as ePubs are generally not well-suited to printing.

Be aware that our PDF eBooks come with a watermark at the bottom of each page, which says that the eBook is the "property of (your name)". This watermark is as minimal a method of applying digital rights management (DRM) as there is, while still trying to assure our authors that their work won't end up on a pirate website somewhere.

Regarding DRM, please note that Mountaineers Books has no control over the DRM that other retailers apply to the books you purchase from them. If you buy eBook versions of Mountaineers Books titles from other retailers, they may come with restrictions that we're not even aware of. Be sure to read their DRM policies to know what has been applied.

Can I download my eBook onto two different computers?
Yes. If you buy your ebook directly from Mountaineers Books, yes. We place no restrictions on the files we sell directly. If you purchase your ebook from another retailer, the title may come with additional restrictions.

Is my eBook returnable/refundable?
Mountaineers Books proudly guarantees every book we publish. If you buy your ebook directly from Mountaineers Books, you may "return" your purchase for a refund or replacement at any time. You're on your honor here: if you "return" your ebook, we trust that you'll delete any copies you have stored on your computers or devices. Our purchase is 100% refundable.
