If you’ve bought a PDF version of one of SitePoint’s books from us in the past, then I have some good news: you can now download, for free, an ePub or MOBI version of that book, to view on mobile devices like the Kindle or the iPhone. That’s right, for FREE.
Hold up! Weren’t we previously requiring past customers to purchase these formats separately from past PDF purchases in our 5-for-1 eBook sale?
Yes, we were. But when we launched the availability of ePub and MOBI formats, many of you contacted us to ask the question, “What about my previous purchases?”
A reasonable question to ask! Here at SitePoint HQ we debated the merits of selling these new mobile formats in the context of the electronic book landscape and the launch of the iPad. While we initially decided to make these formats available as separate products (and offer them at a massive 80% off), we’ve had a change of heart. In order to reward the loyalty that our past customers have shown us, we’ve decided to change our approach on the ePub and MOBI formats for our titles. I’m therefore excited to announce that, as of now, all owners of SitePoint PDFs prior to the 5-for-1 sale can now download the ePub and MOBI formats of their book at no cost.
Note: this offer is limited to books for which the new mobile formats are available. (There are a handful of current titles for which we have not created ePub and MOBI formats. These titles, as well as superseded editions of books, are still only available in PDF format only.)
How Do I Get ‘Em?
If you’ve previously purchased a PDF title from sitepoint.com, all you need to do is log in to your product claim page and the ePub and MOBI versions of your book(s) will be available for download immediately.
What If I Bought A Book In The Sale?
If you took advantage of our 5-for-1 sale and purchased a book that you already owned in PDF format, then you should be receiving an email from us real soon. We’ve trawled through our customer list and identified who you are, we’ll be offering you the option to receive a refund, or to exchange your purchase for a different book that you don’t yet own. If you don’t hear from us and you think you should, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our support team. Here’s that link to download your ePub and MOBI formats again:
With that announcement out the way, this seems like an opportune moment to remind you that there is less than a week to take advantage of our 5-for-1 deal. There are five new SitePoint books, ready and waiting for you to devour on your device of choice.
