Pdf: All eBooks are available in pdf. You can e-mail up to 30 pages to yourself--or someone else--in pdf format. 

EPUB: Some eBooks are available in the EPUB format. This format is best if you are reading on smaller devices, as you can change the size of text. EPUB is not compatible with Internet Explorer browsers 7 & 8. When trying to open an EPUB format eBook in IE 7 or 8, you are prompted to upgrade your browser to IE 9.
