Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

  • Why aren’t best sellers/latest eBooks provided for free?

  • I’m getting the server error 403. What does it mean?
Error 403 or Server Error comes when a user has downloaded more than 10-15 books in a day. We are sorry for putting this limit but for security reasons it is required. This error will go away after 12 hours by itself.
This limit is applied per internet connection and not per device. You can still download books if you try to download them from a different internet connection. For example if you were using your home wifi earlier, switch to your mobile 3g connection. Then you should be able to download more books.
