Gemstar / Rocket eBook Format

eBooks in this format are no longer sold at eBookMall.

The Rocket eBook, RCA REB Rocket eBook, and Gemstar eBook devices were some of the first popular eBook reading devices. They were discontinued in 2000. eBookMall sold a limited selection of eBooks for these devices all the way through October 2011, until the re-design of our website when we stripped out all obsolete eBook formats.

What can I do now?

We understand that it can be frustrating when the market evolves and eBook formats become outdated. eBookMall is attempting to keep up with the best eBook formats currently available, so we are now selling eBooks in PDF and ePub formats. These formats can be read on a wide range of devices that are sold today.

1. If you purchased eBooks in the old Gemstar format in the past, you can still download them from eBookMall account. We'll keep those downloads available for as long as we can. You must have the "eBook Librarian" software that was included with your eBook device in order to open the eBook or transfer it to your Gemstar eBook. That software only works in Windows XP or earlier versions of Windows. (In other words, this eBook format is ancient.)

2. Check our list of supported devices to see if you own a device that can read our PDF and ePub eBooks. They can be read on Windows, Mac, many eReaders, iOS (iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch) as well as Android smartphones and tablets, so it's likely that you've already got a device that is supported.
