E-books are digital files of books that can be read on one’s computer. All of AVKO’s materials can be purchased in either a hard copy or e-book format. AVKO’s e-books are in Adobe PDF format; one must have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on his computer in order to open the e-books. E-books are an alternative to the books, or an accompaniment.
AVKO’s e-books are also now available on Amazon’s Kindle e-book Reader.
The e-books that come free with membership do not need to be ordered separately via the online shopping cart. You will be able to download these e-books from the members’ section of the website once you receive your login information.
