Reading Kazabo Books on Your Device.
What format are your books?
Books you get directly from Kazabo.com are either unencrypted epub files using social DRM or unencrypted mobi (Kindle) files using social DRM. This means that you can read them on any device. Kazabo books you bought from other vendors, e.g. Amazon, will use that vendor’s standard encryption.
What is Social DRM?
Social DRM is a way of encoding identifying information like your name and email address into your ebook. It’s sort of like a digital book plate that says “This ebook is the property of . . .” But, unlike Kindle or Adobe, the books themselves are unencrypted so they can be read on any device.

If you’re still having trouble, here are step-by-step instructions on how to get your epub book off of your computer and onto your iPad.
How can I read my new book on my Kindle?
First, Make sure you have purchased the Kindle version of your book! (Kindles cannot read files in the epub format.)
Once you have the Kindle file (with the file extension .mobi) of your book, the easiest way is simply to email it to your kindle. Each Kindle has a unique email address which is assigned when you register your Kindle. Once you know that, it’s very easy to do. (So that you will never get “spammed,” your Kindle will only accept emails from an email address that is already connected with your Kindle.)

You can also “sideload” books to your Kindle directly from your computer. This is also easy, just plug your Kindle into your computer’s USB port and drag and drop your new book. Here’s some more information on how to do that.

How can I read my new book on my non-Kindle ereader?
Your ereader probably already handles unencrypted epub files. So just add your new book from Kazabo to your ereader just as you would any other book. If you need something on your computer to help manage your unencrypted ebooks and help you get them onto you ereader, we recommend Calibre.
I’m already using Adobe Digital Editions. Can I read your books using that?
Absolutely. Nothing easier. Just open your new book — make sure it is in epub format — from Kazabo using Adobe Digital Editions and save it to your library. You can even just drag your new book over the Adobe Digital Editions icon on your desktop and it will open automatically.
