About Cambria Press eBooks

Cambria Press lets you download any of the 90 ebooks that we subscribe to to your iPad, Kindle, Nook or Sony device. You can also simply download the pdf of any ebook for use on any device, with no expiration date.
Pros:
• The simplest way to use these ebooks is the best: Just open the pdf version on your device and read it in a browser or save it to iBooks.
Cons:
• It's also possible to transfer the ebook to your device in other ways, though they're more complicated. For iPads, it means downloading it on a computer with Adobe Digital Editions installed, then transferring it to your iPad via iTunes.
