To learn about updates, watch the Updated Ebook Files page for titles that you've purchased, or better yet, subscribe to our free Ebooks Update newsletter.

How to Get Ebooks onto Your Reader

There are scores of different ebook-reading devices out there, but let us give you some tips about "sideloading" your IVP ebooks onto some of the most common ones:

Downloading Multiple Copies

If you purchased multiple copies of a single title, you may distribute the ebook file to up to that number of individuals, including yourself. (Otherwise, ebook purchases are for your own use only.) You'll see just one listing for the title in your Ebook Library, though.

Downloading Operation World

The Operation World ebook is especially large due to lots of charts and maps that are included, especially in the PDF file, so it will take extra time to download (in some cases 15 minutes or longer).

Depending on your computer set-up and internet connection, however, you may have problems even after allowing extra time. If that happens, please contact us by emailing us at or by calling (800) 843-9487 and we'll help you work it out! We've got good solutions for you.
