About eBooks.com

Welcome to eBooks.com, the world's leading source of ebooks.

eBooks.com sells ebooks in multiple electronic formats in all categories. It is the leading specialist ebook retailer.

Users can download books to computers, dedicated ebook devices, PDAs and mobile phones and the software required is free. They can also read books online, from any computer, anywhere, without downloading or installing anything.

What's Different about eBooks.com

We love books. Whether in digital or paper form, we believe that books are a fundamental part of our cultural, entertainment and educational lives. Our roots are in bookselling, not in technology, so we're always focused on what readers want, rather than coming up with complicated technical stuff that gets in the way of finding and reading the books you want.

A Broad Range

eBooks.com stocks all the latest bestselling and new release titles, which are streamed direct to us by leading publishers. But that's not all. We also offer a huge selection of professional & technical ebooks and wide range of academic and scholarly titles.

  • Popular consumer ebooks
  • Professional and technical ebooks
  • Academic and scholarly ebooks

Online and Offline Access

When you buy an ebook from eBooks.com, you can download the whole book (just as you can from our competitors) but you can also read our books online - anywhere, any time, from any internet connected device. So, if you're at home and want to refer to a book that you downloaded to your work computer, you can. Just log in to your eBooks.com account and start reading. There's nothing to prove, nothing to install or download; just start reading now.


As with printed books, book publishers set the prices for ebooks. In general, most ebooks are priced at something less than the equivalent printed version.

Shopping at eBooks.com

We're trying to make your search-and-buy experience as simple and easy as possible. You can search eBooks.com for a particular ebook by subject, title or author. Please tell us if we get it wrong or make things difficult.

Opening an Account

You can make a purchase without opening an account and you will be given a download link at the end of your transaction. But if you think you may become a repeat customer, and want to store all your purchases together in one account bookshelf you'll need to create an account before you can buy ebooks or receive email alerts. It's easy to do... just follow the simple steps.

And if you make a one off purchase and then decide actually you'd like to make an account, don't worry! You can easily open an account using the same email address you used to purchase with and your past purchase will be included in the new account.

Payment Methods

We accept four major credit cards:

  • Visa
  • MasterCard
  • American Express
  • Diners Club

Email Alerts

Leave it to us to keep you on top of things. Sign up for email alerts in any subject or discipline, and we'll send you an email alert when new ebooks come out in your field. On average, you'll receive an alert once a week for popular subjects (like fiction and biography) and less frequently for other subjects.

It's easy to manage your subscriptions, simply by clicking on a link within each email message, or logging in to your account at eBooks.com. Click on Modify My Email Alert Subscriptions.

My Wish List

Here's a simple way to keep track of your wish list. Any time you see a title you'd like to read, just drop it into the wish list and we'll remember it for you. It only takes one click to flip an item from your wish list to your shopping cart.

Gift Certificates

What a great way to give the gift of reading. You can give an ebook certificate for any amount from $10 to $100 simply by going to our Gift Certificate page and following the simple steps.

Returns Policy

As it is not possible to "return" an ebook in the same way that books can be returned in printed form, we are not able to accept returns. This is a condition of our agreement with book publishers. If there is an error on our part, or a flaw in the ebook you received, please contact our support team and advise them. They'll sort it out.
