Reading a digital book is very easy!
2 steps are enough
- Download an eBook reader (reading application for pc / mac, tablet or phone) or own an e-reader.
- Read your digital book.
There are several eBook formats, but most of the digital books on the market are in the ePub format. They can be easily recognized thanks to their .epub extension
This format will be the one used on most PC / MAC, tablet / iPad, Android phone, Windows, ios, Apple for example.
There is another format dedicated to the Amazon Kindle reader, it is the Mobi format that can be recognized by its .mobi extension.
On bridge-eshop we have therefore chosen to offer you these two formats.
In order to help you make the right choice, we provide you with extracts in both formats.
