ePub (Adobe DRM)

ePub (Adobe DRM) eBooks have the file extension .epub and are an excellent choice for use on a large variety of eReader devices. ePub is designed for reflowable content, which means that the text of the eBook can rearrange itself to fit the screen size of the device being used. This makes it the best choice for devices with small screens, such as smartphones. ePub is the current open-source eBook format that is standardized by the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF).

Software Requirements

Adobe Digital Editions

The eBooks that we've classified as "ePub (Adobe DRM)" are .epub files that are protected by Adobe's DRM system, so they must be downloaded through Adobe Digital Editions. Before you download any eBooks, it's very important that you "authorize" your copy of Adobe Digital Editions with an Adobe ID. Our Adobe Digital Editions page has step-by-step instructions for this.

Adobe Digital Editions is required for reading on your Windows or Mac computer. If you would like to read on a dedicated eReader device such as the Nook, Sony Reader, or BeBook, you can transfer the eBook to that device via Adobe Digital Editions. See more supported devices below.
