For us, it’s all about the physical book; but we have a number of out-of-print titles whose further sales prospects would not justify a reprint, at least not of our normal high quality, so we are releasing some of these as e-books. Because Lodestar books are known for fine typography and layout as well as inspiring source material, our e-books are PDF format only, to faithfully reproduce the look of the printed page. They will be found on our Shop page with ‘pdf e-book’ appended to their name.
PDFs can be read on PC, Mac (and other) computers, tablets, later model e-readers, and smartphones. On an e-reader such as Kindle, a small tablet, or a smartphone, you’ll find the text easier to read with the device held in landscape mode, as this increases its size. E-reader manufacturers provide information and tools to get PDF files onto their devices — please check this out for your device before ordering as we cannot advise on every circumstance.
When you make an e-book purchase it may take a minute for the checkout page to be updated with a download link (try refreshing it), but anyway it’s OK to close that page and wait for the link to reach your email inbox. The link is good for 3 days. If you somehow lose the PDF later, just contact us for a replacement.
We trust you will respect the efforts and legal rights of author and/or publisher by not making unauthorised copies of our e-books.
