Below are answers to some questions that we get asked about how to read your eBook PDF on various devices.

You will receive an email stating that your order is Complete and a link will be included in the download column. At times the email ends up in the junk/spam folder in your email account.

What can I do if I received an error that I have downloaded the eBook too many times?

You should download the eBook to your computer or mobile device and then open it from there to read. If you repeatedly use the download link from your confirmation email to download and open the eBook in your browser you will eventually exceed the download limit.

If you have already exceeded your limit and have not actually saved the eBook to your computer or mobile device then forward your confirmation email to sales@jimhumblebooks.co and ask us to enable your downloads again. If you don’t have the confirmation email then you can use our contact page, but make sure to use the same name and email address that you used with your order. Also tell us the date of the order.
