When Digimonkey saw her first ebook, it was love at first sight. And the one thing Digimonkey loves more than reading ebooks is gifting ebooks to her family and friends. That’s why each holiday season Digimonkey avoids the hours of bumper to bumper traffic and the mad crush at the shopping mall in favor of a relaxing afternoon spent curled up in front of her computer, cup of hot cocoa in her paw, happily clicking off her holiday shopping list.
But Digimonkey, you exclaim, I’m on ...more
Digimonkey attended the birthday party of a friend over the weekend, and as she mingled with the other guests, one of them asked Digi, “So, what type of work do you do?” Now, Digi loves answering this question, but the moment she started talking about electronic books, the woman shook her head and said, “Oh, I can’t read those. I don’t have an ereader.”
For those of you who have met Digimonkey, you can imagine her little face scrunching up in an expression of shock and ...more
With the rapid increase in the use of tablets and smartphones as ereading devices, EPUB has become the fastest-growing file format. The International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF), a trade and standards association for the digital publishing industry, developed and approved the EPUB format as the industry standard. The open, user-friendly format is non-proprietary and can be found in both secure and regular versions.
Because of its adoption as an industry standard, you’ll find it’s compatible with just about every ebook reading device and app, with the ...more
Shopping for ebooks is a wonderful experience, one that Digimonkey likes to indulge in when she has time to relax and browse. However, sometimes there’s a book she wants to buy RIGHT NOW, when she may only have a minute or two to spare. That’s why Digi’s a fan of the “Buy Now” express checkout! With “buy Now”, she can go from login to reading in less than a minute.
How does Buy Now work?
What if you didn’t know which download format would work best with your device? What if you had a question about eBook Bucks, the Buy-10-Get-1-Free program, or the Wish List? What if you encountered a problem downloading one of your ebooks?
Would you know where to find answers and assistance? If the answer is “no”, then it’s time you learned about the “Help” support ticket system!

To access the Help system, you’ll need to login to your All Romance account. Click on the ...more
Digimonkey hears from customers on a regular basis who find themselves locked out of their account because they’ve changed email addresses due to a move, spam or hacking, but failed to update their All Romance account to their new email. Not fun!
To avoid the resulting frustration, Digi’s put on her myth-busting boots so she can give you the facts about email addresses and your All Romance account.
When you change email addresses, you should open a new account
Not true! In fact, opening more ...more
One of the great advantages of ebooks is that they can be purchased and read using a multitude of electronic devices, including tablets and smartphones. That means you can feed your ebook obsession even when you’re on the go!
However, portable devices generally have less screen real estate than their computer cousins, which is one reason All Romance has a special mobile site that’s optimized for those smaller screens. It loads very quickly and has fewer linked objects, which makes shopping and downloading using a touchscreen ...more
The modern world seems to be full of security these days — for houses, in airports, on personal computers…the list is endless. In fact, even some of Digimonkey’s ebooks have security!
The first time she purchased an ebook and saw download links that said Secure Adobe and Secure Adobe Epub and scary error messages that said things like “Reader not installed” and “unable to download”, Digimonkey didn’t feel very secure at all.
Well, Digimonkey took a couple of deep breaths (which she highly recommends!) and then she ...more
