E-books may be purchased two different ways:
- For immediate download: Use the separate
e-book order form to buy

or have been a member in the past.

You will receive an automated e-mail within a few minutes
from Brian [at] avko [dot] org with
a subject line of "AVKO | Thank you for your e-book purchase
(E###)" (where the "###" lists the product number of the
e-book purchased). In this e-mail, you will find a
link or several links to download your e-book(s). If
it is a collection of e-books, you will have an option to
download a single .zip file (that needs to be "extracted" or
"decompressed") or several, individual .pdf files. You
will need to login using the username and password you
created (which are also listed in the e-mail for your
reference). Please check your spam folder if you do
not see the e-mail within a few minutes. You can also
access your e-books from your
or the e-book download page.
A few reasons you may wish to obtain an e-book
version of AVKO materials:
- Shipping is free for e-books.
This is especially nice for people looking to keep
within their educational budget or who live
outside of the United States.
- E-books are sent (and delivered via e-mail) much
faster than hard copy books.
- E-books save paper.
- E-books support the AVKO Foundation and its goals of
promoting literacy and low-cost educational materials
for dyslexics, homeschoolers, and educators more so than
hard copy books because of the reduced overhead (labor
and manufacturing costs).
- E-books are searchable. Find the page you were
looking for with a simple search on the computer.
E-books are sent out within one
to two business days of your order if you use
the standard order
form. Use the separate
e-book order form
for instant access. Be sure to
verify that your e-mail address is typed in
correctly and that your mailbox has enough
storage space. If your e-mail provider
requires that you "whitelist" e-mail addresses,
please add the following addresses to be sure
that you receive your e-books:
