Hi

I am not a good computer user, any help on some questions. What is e-pub and what is mobi. I can only download pdf. I have a gobii e-reader, but I don't know if it will read the e-pub books, there are so many that I would like but not in pdf format.

Hi. I'm also new here but I guess I can give you advice. I used to read from my computer since every book's free here. In my computer, I can only use PDF format but I also have a Kindle and I think MOBI works best there so...MOBI doesn't run on most computers. I don't use epub since it doesn't work in neither. I hope this helps, coz I need some help too.  :)

Download Calibre and you'll be able to run Mobi, Lit and ePub besides some other formats in your computer. You can also convert books between these formats.
Also, Adobe Digital Editions supports Epub and PDF files.
Both applications are freewares. ;)

Hi mwall,
Welcome to the STP community!

Nice to meet you! I was going to move you to the question section but looks like you're good now! We have a lot of friendly, helpful members as you can see.  :D
Please read the following threads & hints. This works for all members but should help with with the basics:



Some tricks for searching: Use either the book, series or author. To bring up Advanced Search enter just 1 letter. Also putting "quotation marks" around the name, author or series will help narrow the search as well. Searching is tricky but do your best.

Do you see a thread you want to follow? Use the notify button. It will email you when something is posted in that thread!

Downloading a book? Please take a moment to click the Thank You button. It's the least you can do for the kind person who took the time & spent their money to upload it. :)

If you don't remember who to contact and you would like to get our attention, just start a post "Requesting Mr. Admin/Mod Help Please" and one of us will be along shortly.:D
