  • Found this offer on Facebook ads, and it seemed like a neat idea.

  • Can we get this free for Kindle?

  • The one and only format being offered, that of the PDF, may be
    downloaded to any computer, printed out on paper and, in some cases,
    transferred to an electronic book reader. We have not tested whether or
    not this transfer is possible with the Kindle, which may utilize a
    different file format.
