I downloaded my eBook but can’t find the file
I downloaded from a link in an email
If you use an email program on your computer, it sometimes downloads files into a different folder from the one your web browser uses. Please check your program’s settings to find out where it downloads files if you are not sure.

iOS automatically recognises eBooks in epub format when you download them and prompts you to open them in the iBooks app, if it is installed. You should see a bar across the top of your screen as shown below – click on Open in iBooks to open your ebook and add it to your library.
ePub files can be read on most e-readers including the Barnes & Noble Nook, Blackberry Playbook, Apple’s iBooks software (on iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch), Kobo, Sony Reader and more. You can use a variety of software to read ePub files including the free Adobe Digital Editions app.
mobi files can be read on the Kindle, Mobipocket Reader, Calibre and Stanza desktop amongst others. Many smartphones also support mobi files. Amazon’s Kindle software is available for most hardware.
Calibre e-reader software will read most types of files including ePub, mobi and prc, and is available for Windows, Mac and Linux.
If you want to transfer your mobi file to a Kindle, please see these instructions.
A file extension is the part of a filename after the
file.txt. If the extension is missing your computer will not know which program to use to open the file.
If your device says it cannot recognise the eBook file, please check it is in the right format for your device and that the file extension is present.
If your ebook files do not show an extension or have an extension which is not .epub or .mobi, and your software cannot recognize or open the files, try renaming the file with .epub or .mobi as the extension, as this often enables the file to be readable.
