What are e-books?
E-books are not physical paper books. Essentially, they are books that you can read on your computer or on an e-book reader. They are computer files in pdf format that can be read on a PC or a Mac with the free Adobe Reader. Because e-books are downloaded files, there is no shipping charge for e-books. If you like, you may print your e-book and put it in a binder. If you spill coffee on it, print the pages you need again!
If I order an e-book, will I receive something in the mail?
No. Because e-books are computer files, they are available to be downloaded immediately after the sale. If you place an order for e-books, you will be directed to a download page where you can then download the e-books you ordered. For your convenience, we also send a confirmation e-mail that includes the download link, but if you misplace the e-mail, you can contact us and we will look it up for you.
How much is the shipping for e-books?
There is no shipping charge for e-books since they are downloadable files.
How quickly will I receive my e-book order?
As soon as your order completes, you will be directed to your download page. If you have a fast Internet connection, you can be reading your e-books in seconds anywhere in the world.
I have a slow Internet connection. Can I have a CD of the e-books mailed to me?
Unfortunately, do to the number of requests we receive for CDs and the fact that we don’t have the equipment to mass produce CDs, they are not available at this time. If you buy our e-books and wish to put them on a CD for your personal use, you may.
Most of our e-books are 1-1.5 megabites in size. Using a 56K dial-up modem, you should be able to download each one in 3-5 minutes unless Internet traffic is very high. If you buy an e-book package, you will download each e-book separately, not all of them together.
I purchased an e-book, but I misplaced it or my computer crashed. How can I get my download link again?
While we strongly recommend backing up your purchased e-books, if you should lose them, contact us here and we will look it up for you.
Can I share my e-books with my friends or with people on the Internet?
No. You may not make copies of the e-books for people who have not purchased them. Our e-books are protected under international copyright laws and unauthorized distribution is a crime subject to prosecution. You may share a recipe or two with a friend. If you would like to excerpt one of the articles for a class or some other similar purpose, you may do so as long as you credit the source as www.LivingOnADime.com. If you are uncertain whether something is OK, please contact us here.
We have more than one computer. Can I view my e-book on another computer?
Yes, you may. As long as you’re not making copies for people who have not purchased it, feel free to view it wherever it is convenient to you.
