We decided to sell ebooks because so many loyal customers asked us to give them the chance to buy their ebooks from us. But it hasn’t been easy to set it all up. In fact, we seem to be the only independent bookshop around doing this without a reading device selling partner. A big round of applause, please, for ABC’s own IT team, for pulling all the pieces together to make this possible. They’re fabulous!
You can read our ebooks on all standard devices and tablets excepting the Kindle, in epub and .pdf formats. A free app like Bluefire will even enable reading on your iPhone or iPad. Click here for an ABC ebooks FAQ. (Please note that we don’t sell ereader devices.)
To celebrate the launch of the ebook selection on our site, we have a special deal for you!
