The Reading Room
To download books, go to their authors’ pages. You can download all the plain text files immediately, but you need a free Library Card for the PDF, ePub and Mobi files.
The editions you find here were created exclusively for the Dunyazad Digital Library. Their native format is PDF, the ePub and Mobi files have been derived from the plain text versions.
Currently the Library holds 40 English language volumes, with a total of 14316 pages, plus one book in German.

How to Download Files from the Authors’ Pages
This depends on your browser and your computer’s operating system, but on a Windows PC it is usually done by right-clicking the “Download …” link, and selecting “Save link as …”
Otherwise, if you left-click the link, the file will probably open in a new window or tab, and you can save it to a local drive from there.
On Android devices you may experience problems with using your Library Card – this is a known bug of some Android browsers. You can use a different browser like FireFox, which does not have this problem, or you can download the PDF or ePub files to your PC and then transfer them to your Android device.
All files are free of any DRM restrictions.
