This is a very helpful article! Many people do not realize that certain eReaders are tied to certain retailers. I've recently been doing research on whether or not to buy a Kindle and Nook and found another article to be pretty useful that I thought I'd share on here.

Thanks for your question! You can purchase e-Books from your local bookseller just as you can purchase print books from us. Here's a page on our website that might prove helpful for you: You should be able to download the android version of the IndieBound Reader app to your Kobo (, select your bookstore by zip code (we're 78703) and then download Google e-Books to your device. If you'd like some free one-on-one help, send an email to and you can set up an appointment with someone here who will gladly walk you through the whole process. We're here to help!

I got an Amazon Kindle Fire for Christmas (yay for my wonderful husband!) but I remembered this article as soon as I opened the gift. However, I found a way to get the IndieBound Reader on the Fire (quick and easy), and last night I even bought the ebook version of A Tale Dark & Grimm from BookPeople through the IndieBound Reader on my Kindle Fire. So, if you're like me and got a Fire for Christmas and don't want to swap it but still want to support BookPeople, here's how I did it: Thanks, BookPeople, for being an amazing bookstore and ebookstore!
