All ebooks purchased from the Monsoon website, including all ebooks bundled free with paperback books, are stored in your ‘My Account’ area for unlimited download to any device anywhere in the world.
By applying ‘social DRM’ to our ebooks we want to make your reading experience more pleasurable and enable you to read your ebook on any or all of your e-reading devices (smartphone, tablet, e-reader, desktop). When you buy a Monsoon ebook, your name, email address and the date of purchase appear inside the ebook, at the beginning and end of the book, and an invisible purchase transaction code is watermarked into the ebook, by which illegal distribution can be traced. In accordance with our Terms & Conditions, you may not resell or upload Monsoon ebooks to the internet, but we want to enable you to share an ebook with a friend or family member as you would a paperback.
After you purchase an ebook (or a paperback bundled with a free ebook), the MOBI file (Kindle- and Kindle app-compatible) and EPUB file (compatible with everything else) will remain available in your ‘My Account’ area for unlimited downloads. Download links may also be found on the email purchase receipt from Monsoon Books.
If you have a Kindle, you can download the MOBI file and email it to your Kindle device. You will have a Send-to-Kindle email address ending in kindle.com (it can be found at the Manage your Devices page on Amazon UK or Amazon US). If you haven’t previously done so, you will need to follow Amazon’s instructions to authorize your own email address to be able to send ebooks to yourself. Then simply email the MOBI file as an attachment to your Kindle email address and the book will appear on your Kindle.
If you purchase an ebook from Monsoon on the smartphone or tablet on which you have the Kindle app installed then click on the download link for the MOBI file and your phone or tablet will prompt you to select ‘Open in Kindle’.
iPhone or iPad
Purchase an ebook from Monsoon on your iPad or iPhone and you can click on the download link for the EPUB file and then select ‘Open in iBooks’ (if you don’t have iBooks installed, download it for free from the AppStore) or, if you have another e-reader installed, then open it in your preferred e-reader. If you have the Kindle app installed on your iPhone or iPad, you can also click on the download link for the MOBI file and select ‘Open in Kindle’.
Android smartphone or tablet
Purchase an ebook from Monsoon on your Android smartphone or tablet and you should be able to click on the download link for the EPUB file and then open the book on your favourite pre-installed e-reader. If you have the Kindle app installed, you can also click on the download link for the MOBI file and select ‘Open in Kindle’.
E-readers: Kobo, Nook, Sony
Simply download the EPUB file to your desktop and side load the book onto your e-reader.
On a Mac, download the EPUB file and it will open in iBooks. For Windows users, you will first need to download an ebook-reading program, such as Adobe Digital Editions. Once installed, you can download and open the EPUB file.
