Choosing the correct eBook file format

Available eBook formats

EPUB is recommended for most eBook readers (excl. Kindle) and reading apps on mobile, tablet or desktop. See our recommended eBook apps

PDF is recommended for computers or tablets lacking a reading app. We advice against trying to read a PDF on your mobile – the text will simply be too small.

MOBI is solely for Amazon Kindle.

Note: All files are protected by digital watermarkering.

All about digital watermarking

Every audiobook and eBook purchased at Sesamy have a unique Digital Watermark, used to identify the owner of that specific copy of the book.

The Digital Watermarks will not affect the quality of your audio- or eBook. Neither will it affect your choice of device or app used to read or listen to the book.

Digital Watermarks ensure that authors and publishers are fairly compensated and that local and international copyright laws are respected.

You may download and share your purchased books to multiple devices owned and used by yourself. According to our Terms of service, it is forbidden to reproduce, copy or distribute your audio- and eBooks for other people to read or listen to them. In most countries, it is also forbidden by national law.
