I've been getting some questions about Catholic 101--mostly about downloading it--so I thought I'd devote a blog post to it!
1) Why are there two different products to download? What does that mean?!
There are two different choices for downloading Catholic 101, and I did that on purpose.
Once you've bought the product, two options are available to you for download: one is a PDF, and one is an ePub file.
The PDF works anywhere, but is best for reading on a laptop/desktop, or if you want to print it out. It will download to your device. You can read a PDF on an iPad. It's just not the best format for it, because....
The ePub file is especially designed for all e-readers EXCEPT KINDLE. (Kindle is weird.) With the ePub file, you get access to the embedded web links, as well as the interactive table of contents, where you can click on a chapter to read it. The footnotes are also linked, too. Basically it's a much easier reading experience than on the PDF if you like links and things like that.
If you have an iPad, this is how you get it to open in iBooks:
*On your device, go to the Gumroad website in your web browser of choice. Log in to your account, and select Catholic 101.
*Select the ePub format. When this downloads, it'll ask you what you want to open it in. Select iBooks.
*Open iBooks. It should be right there. Select it, and there you go!
If this still doesn't work for you, there is Gumroad help, or I can help you. :)
2) But there's no difference in content, right?
Right. The content is exactly the same in each format. It's just a matter of preference, and if you don't have an e-reader, then obviously you'll want the PDF, or if you want to print it out.
Now, gifting the book! If you've already bought Catholic 101, but you want to give it to people as a gift, this is how you do it.
* Click the Catholic 101 bar at the top of my site (or log into Gumroad. If you do that, click "Buy it again!)
*You will be at the Gumroad purchase page. Click, "I want this!"
*On the next page, you'll see payment information.
See that little gift box? Click that! Then you can enter the recipient's email information and pay! Yay!!!!
So that's it for today's FAQ installment. As always, I greatly appreciate all of my customers! :) Thank you for supporting my little book! If you have more questions, drop them in the comments!
