Backup, backup, backup. It’s a mantra Digimonkey has been known to hear in her sleep. We live in a digital age in which more and more of the things we “own” are stored, not on shelves and in drawers, but in digital 1s and 0s on tiny pieces of hardware. For convenience and portability, it’s a wonderful leap forward, but it also comes at a price, and that price is the risk of losing everything in the blink of an eye, or more likely, the ...more
Digimonkey fondly remembers the day that she was introduced to “My Library”, the heart of her All Romance/OmniLit account. It was love at first sight.
The Library is a wonderful place, where you can download your recently purchased books, see which books you’ve already purchased, even access your Buy 10 Get 1 Free codes! However, the Library is neither omniscient nor omnipotent, which is why it’s important to understand how the Library can work for you, and also the limitations to its powers.

Shopping, shopping, SHOPPING! Digimonkey loves shopping, especially for ebooks at All Romance. All that hard work and dedication has made Digi an expert when it comes to the ARe/OmniLit Cart, and you can be an expert, too!
Tip #1: Login to your account before adding books to the Cart
The Cart will hold some items temporarily without logging in. However, the books are not attached to your account if you’re not logged in, so if you use the “Search” feature after adding books to the Cart, the system ...more
Digimonkey is a big fan of instant gratification, which is one of the advantages of ebooks. If she spots an author’s announcement regarding a new release, she can have that book in her All Romance Library in 30 seconds or less. Woo-hoo!
However, many books are advertised weeks or even months before their release dates, and Digi doesn’t want to forget about them. What’s a monkey to do? Why, take advantage of the Pre-Order button!
The Pre-Order Button
The Pre-Order button allows you to pre-purchase a ...more
If you’re like Digi, you visit the ARe/OmniLit site quite often. And the first thing you’ll see on the home page just below the banner is the Featured Books section. But what is a Featured Book and how does it get there?
First, Digi would also like to point out that there are actually two Featured Books sections, because different books are displayed on the OmniLit and All Romance ...more
New! New! New! New! Digi has something to share with you!
ARe/OmniLit recently launched a wonderful new enhancement called New For You, a pop-up that displays a dozen books that have been specifically selected based on your purchasing preferences. This feature will help you locate new releases that you don’t want to miss!
The selections are based on your prior purchases, taking into account your ...more
What is an Adobe ID?
An Adobe ID is essentially a “key” that enables the user to unlock the security on Secure Adobe and Secure Adobe Epub files. The Adobe ID is tied to an email address and password, and is controlled by Adobe, the same company that produces Adobe Reader and Adobe Digital Editions.
Creating and using an Adobe ID is free.
Digimonkey fields a lot of questions about rebates and discounts. Well, actually, she fields one question on many occasions. Digimonkey, the book I bought today was supposed to be discounted, but I was charged full price at checkout. How come?
The short answer is that the book that was purchased was offering a rebate rather than a discount. The long answer is more complicated. There are a lot of misconceptions about the difference between discounts and rebates, which is why Digi’s here to share all the ...more
Adobe Reader is a great program for viewing regular Adobe Acrobat (PDF) files, however, it’s an absolute failure at opening anything other than PDF files. If you want to open a Secure Adobe or Secure Adobe Epub file on your computer, you will need to use Adobe Digital Editions, instead.
The tricky part is that sometimes Adobe Reader attempts to open Secure Adobe files anyway, and essentially blocks out Digital Editions. This leads to error messages and frustration, two things Digi likes to help people clear ...more
Reading ebooks is FUN! But when you download a PDF file to your tablet, smartphone or ereader and the book won’t open, that’s not fun. Enter Digimonkey! She’s going to explain the difference between a PDF file and an EPUB file, and tell you why those pesky PDFs sometimes fail to open on portable devices.
PDF stands for Portable Document Format. It was created by Adobe Systems, Inc., as was Adobe Reader, the free software that allows you to open and view PDF files on your ...more
