    Your link for downloading to iPod Touch/iPhone does not work. It gives “Import Failed, Failed to download and import ‘iagA4X’: Unknown file format for ‘iagA4X’.”

    Updated instructions for iPhone users are now available. Thank you for your patience.

    The instructions for downloading to iPhone say “open Stanza”. What’s that?

      Stanza is a free iPhone app that allows you to read ebooks on your iPhone. Simply visit the Apple App store and search for “Stanza.”
