Historically, SitePoint books have been downloadable. If you retain a membership that was purchased before 19th December 2018 you will still be able to download SitePoint books.
Members who join AFTER 19th December 2018 will no longer be able to download books unless they are SitePoint books that are not within the online reader. We have moved to an online reading experience without download access in order to offer a lower priced subscription service including other publisher's books.
How can I download a book?
If your membership plan includes downloads, just open up the book within the online reader or the book's product page, and click on the "Download" button. If available, you'll get a choice of three download formats.
If you have access to download books, you can download as many formats, and as many times as you need. There are three to choose from:
- PDF files — easy to use on desktop computers, along with most smartphones and tablets. It's a page-based format, so it provides the closest equivalent to a printed book.
- EPUB is the industry standard for digital books, and is supported by almost all ebook readers, including Apple's iBooks software.
- MOBI format is a file format design for Amazon's kindle devices — it also works with their apps for iPhone, iPad and Android.
If you have any questions regarding downloads, just email our support team, who'll be happy to help.
