I want to send the book to my Kindle over Wi-Fi. Can I do that?

When I try to open my eBook in my reader, I get an error saying this is a secure format eBook. What do I do?

If you are unable to open a purchased eBook, you may have purchased a secure format eBook. Books by larger publishers such as Kensington, Harlequin, and Penguin often have a security feature in order to guard against piracy that prevents them from being opened in some readers. Most books on BookStrand.com do not have this feature, however, if the file ends in .pdfs instead of .pdf, it is a secure format.

If this is the case, you must open the book using Adobe Digital Editions (version 1.7.2). Download and install the software, then navigate back to your bookshelf and download the title again. Please be aware that you will only have three opportunities to download the book.

I just bought a new device. Can I add my previously purchased books to it?
Should you purchase a new device, BookStrand.com allows you to add books you have already bought in a different format. Simply find the books in your bookshelf, and click the hyperlinked format for the desired eBook type for your device.
Can I share books that I have purchased?
Under no circumstances are you allowed to share purchased eBooks with anyone by transmitting them via email or the internet. Any distribution (with or without profit) of these books through e-mail, newsgroup, forum, auction site, or any other forcible method is strictly prohibited. Offenders will be prosecuted within the full extent of the law. Please respect our authors and their intellectual property rights. By purchasing Siren-BookStrand books, you agree not to violate U.S. Federal Copyright Law.
