DRM stands for Digital Rights Management. eReader.com eBooks are encrypted with DRM to protect the authors' work. Without the eReader Pro application, you will not be able to read eReader eBooks, and other eBook Readers will not work with eReader.com eBooks.

eReader files can be read on PC or Macs with the eReader Pro software, or on handheld devices running the PalmOS or Pocket PC software. These Secure Formats use encryption technology, preventing copying. Many large trade publishers will not allow their eBooks to be sold in an unencrypted format, which prevents unauthorized copying. This gives our members the widest possible selection, including national best-selling authors.
