Will my Kindle work with your ebooks?

The ebooks sold by eBooks.com have Adobe DRM applied to them. This means they are not compatible with most Kindle devices as Amazon use their own bespoke DRM and format. In essence they have created a closed platform.

However, you can read your eBooks.com ebooks on your Kindle Fire, Fire HD, or HDX by side loading our Ebook Reader app.

If you are not sure which version of Kindle you own, or which 'generation' as they are referred to, please check the serial number.

The serial number is a 16 digit code that is displayed on the box that your Kindle was packaged in. Or you can find it by powering on your Kindle and going to 'Settings' then 'Device Info'.

Find your specific generation or model based on the first four characters of the serial number.
