If you do not have cookies enabled, then any items you’ve placed in your cart but have not yet purchased will be “forgotten” once you’ve left our site. cookies are not available to other companies and will not retrieve any personal information such as name, address, and credit card information from your computer.

What does DRM-Protected mean?

Digital rights management (DRM) is a method of protecting copyrighted materials and preventing digital piracy. Publishers, as the copyright holders of publications, set the parameters for DRM implementation.

What is Adobe Digital Editions?

Adobe Digital Editions is a free eBook reader application used to read DRM-protected eBooks on your PC or Mac.

What is an Adobe ID?

An Adobe ID is free and only takes a minute to set up (click here to create an Adobe ID now). In order to read our eBooks you must download the Mardel Reader for your mobile device or Adobe Digital Editions software for your PC or Mac. In order to activate either of these, you must have an Adobe ID.

Can I run Adobe Digital Editions on Mac and Windows?

Adobe Digital Editions runs on many Windows® and Macintosh™ computers.

I'm having trouble installing Adobe Digital Editions on Mac Lion.

There is a known issue with using the automatic installer on the Adobe site. Please follow the instructions on Adobe to install Adobe Digital Editions manually.

Do I need additional software to run Adobe Digital Editions?

To use Adobe Digital Editions, Adobe Flash Player must be installed. The required version of Adobe Flash Player varies depending on operating system:

Windows Vista (or newer) requires Adobe Flash Player v9.0.28 (or newer).
Windows XP and Windows 2000 require Adobe Flash Player v7.0 (or newer).

Once you have located your book, simply add it to your cart and continue shopping or proceed to checkout and complete your order.

How do I download my eBooks?

Once you have completed your purchase with us, we will display a link to download your eBook (or eBooks!) on your order confirmation page, in your order confirmation email, and in the My Account section of our website.

Otherwise, you may choose the PC / Mac download link to begin the download to your personal computer.

Are eBooks returnable?

Unfortunately, we cannot accept returns for eBooks.

What is an ePub?

ePub is the standard eBook format that makes it possible to optimize and customize text and images for both large displays like a desktop computer and small screens like a smartphone.

ePub Format Compatibility

This is the preferred format for eBooks. Mardel Reader supports the ePub format for mobile and handheld devices and Adobe Digital Editions supports the ePub format for your PC or Mac. You can download and install Adobe Digital Editions software from More information on this format can be found at

Where are downloaded eBook files stored on my computer?

Windows: If you have not changed your preferences in Adobe® Digital Editions, the .epub or .pdf files are located in your "My Documents \ My Digital Editions" folder.

Mac OS: If you have not changed your preferences in Adobe® Digital Editions, the .epub or .pdf files are located in your "Documents \ Digital Editions" folder.

Why do I have to activate the Adobe Digital Editions software?

Authorizing your software prior to downloading your book will ensure that you retain accessibility to that book when using any copy of Adobe Digital Editions that has been activated with the same Adobe ID. This is a very important step if you do not want to run into a situation where you cannot access the book that you paid for.
To make sure this process goes smoothly, we recommend that you install the newest version of Adobe Digital Editions and authorize it with an Adobe ID before you purchase any Adobe eBooks. An Adobe ID is a free and a nonintrusive way of identifying users — you need only provide a name, country, and e-mail address. You can create your Adobe ID when prompted within Adobe Digital Editions as you authorize your computer, or go directly to the membership site.

How many computers and devices can I activate with the Mardel Reader?

You can activate up to four computers and/or devices. A maximum of 4 four downloads is permitted.

PDF Format Compatibility

This is a universal format from Adobe that was created before the ePub format. PDF files default to a whole page on mobile devices. PDF files require you to zoom in to read the text.
