    Please note our ebooks do not contain any Digital Restrictions Management, and have always been DRM-free. For us, "DRM Free" means "freedom": you should own the books you've paid for. On whatever device is handy—your laptop, iThingy, Blueberry, you name it. We think ideas should outlast any device you put them on.

    And you can always come back and re-download your books when needed, using your account on We're here to make your life easier.
