1. Epub
2. Android
3. Yes
4. Download book in epub format and open through app.
5. Step 1. The epub book is not downloading. Can it get sent to my mail or something? The link provided is not downloading the book.
6. Yes I did. I downloaded the OBC Reader, but the book isn't downloading there either. I have a reader app already in my phone that I have been using for years to read epub format books. If only I can download the book, I will be able to open it through the app.

Books are NOT sent to the email. Your device may not have enough space for the file. Please try to download it to a PC, and then move it to your device.

Hi, I tried to download the book; however, I got a notification that this book is not available in my region (south-east Asia) thus I can’t download it at the discount prize.

You get the book from your Update tab, and the Guidelines tab explains what to do.

You should report it via your Update tab, then.
