Using the Grace Burrowes Bookstore

How do I buy a book from the Bookstore?

  1. If a book is available through Grace’s bookstore, you’ll find a link at the top and bottom of the book page. At the top of the page, click Buy from Grace. At the bottom, click Grace’s Own eBook Store.
  2. You’ll be taken to that book’s product page on the Grace Burrowes Bookstore. Book information will take a few second to load – please be patient! Click the teal I want this! button.
  3. Enter your email and your credit card detail details – that’s all the information the Grace Burrowes Bookstore needs to process your payment and send you your new book.
  4. Click the teal Pay button at the bottom of the page.
  5. That’s it! You have purchased a book directly from Grace Burrowes. You’re ready to download your products and get them on your favorite ebook reading device. Continue reading for more instructions.

Okay, I bought a book from Grace’s store. How do I download it?

  1. Once your payment processes, you’ll be taken to a Thank you! page.
  2. Click the gray View Product button. You’ll be taken to a page where you’ll download your book. (Should I “Open in App”?)
  3. You are able to download two or three versions of each book – (1) a MOBI file that works on Kindles, (2) an EPUB file that works on iBooks, Nook, Kobo, Google Play, and most other eReaders, and, for some books, (3) a PDF file that works well on computers and tablets. Choose the format you want and click the gray Download button. Or, if you’re not sure which format you want, click the big teal Download all button. (Should I “Open in App”?)
  4. For the sake of your Future Self, be careful not to delete the receipt you get in your email (subject line will be You bought TITLE). You will be able to access the book files forever as long as you have that email. If you have several email addresses and you’re concerned you’ll forget which address received this receipt, forward the receipt to the others. Everything you need will be accessible through a forward, too!
  5. Keep better track of your bookmarks than your emails? The URL of the Thank you page you’re on now is unique to your purchase. You can bookmark it and come back to it anytime to access your book downloads.

 

Wait, should I “Open in App”?

Not necessary! The App is not for reading, but to keep track of everything you’ve bought from Gumroad. Go back to how to download.
