Our store offers eBooks in EPUB and PDF formats. EPUB is widely compatible with devices like computers, smartphones, tablets, and most eReaders (excluding Kindles). PDF, while not a true eBook, is known for its custom layouts but may be less suitable for small screens. You can access your purchased eBook through the Kortext digital bookshelf via web browsers on desktop or by using the mobile app for offline studying. Kortext also provides smart study tools, including highlighting, note-taking, copying, pasting, and reference export.

To download the Kortext Bookshelf app, head to your device's app store or visit to sign up and read through your browser.
