More books are added regularly and you will always be alerted when a new ebook is ready for download. You can navigate to the library by hovering over the “Litterae” button at the top of the page and clicking on “Ebook Library”.

In the library you will find images of the books that are available for download as well as books that will soon be available.

How do I download an ebook?

By clicking on any book cover while in the library you will be transported to a download page. At the download page you will be given more information about the ebook including a brief synopsis of the plot as well as the author and translator.

You will be given three options for download. You may either download the ebook as a PDF, epub, or .mobi file type.
