eBooks are just like regular books except in the electronic format. You can read eBooks from your Android phone or tablet. Ebooks allow you to carry as many books as your device supports, bookmark and make notes digitally. eBooks are currently supported only on Android versions 2.2 or higher. Apps for other platforms are coming soon!
On the website, you can pay using credit/debit cards, net banking, wallet, etc. Cash on delivery is currently not supported for eBooks. From inside the Android app, you can only purchase using the “Wallet”. Remember, you can buy from anywhere but you can read only on Android devices (v2.2 Froyo or higher versions). Our catalog also includes a great collection of free eBooks.
You will be able to preview up to 10 percent of the eBook for free.
