The following download file, “all-epub-files” contains all the English Dafa books, lectures, and articles, formatted in the standard ePub ebook format, for reading with ebook-reader software on devices such as the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch, Nook, Sony reader, etc., as well as Windows and Macintosh computers. This ZIP file contains over 150 individual files, each representing one lecture, book, or article.
The beauty of the ePub format is that it is well-supported and flexible. When you enlarge or reduce the font size, or rotate the screen, the text re-wraps and re-flows to properly fill the screen. The text never becomes ‘too wide’ to fit, regardless of font size or screen orientation. Each article can be searched, and bookmarks can be saved with dates.
The most economical portable electronic reader is the Nook Simple Touch ($99 – $119 from Barnes & Noble). The iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch devices offer more features however, including color screens and applications. Note: Amazon Kindle readers are not compatible with ePub documents.
To read ePub files on your Windows or Mac computer, please install the Adobe Digital Editions application: http://www.adobe.com/products/digital-editions.html.

How to add ePub files to your iPhone / iPod Touch / iPad:
“iBooks” is an ebook reading application for the iPhone / iPod Touch / iPad (check the app store if it’s not already available on your device). It works very well for reading Dafa books and lectures and is free. It has adjustable font size, and portrait / landscape reading modes, search, multiple bookmarks, etc.
Here’s how to copy these ePub files to iBooks on your iPhone / iPod Touch / iPad:
- Click on all-files.zip link, above, and save the file on your desktop
- Double-click the all-files icon to unzip the file.
- Load iTunes
- In the left-hand column of iTunes, in the “Library” section near the top, click on the word Books. (in the new iTunes 11, released in November 2012, click the large button near the upper-left corner of the iTunes window, and select “Books”)
- If Books does not appear, click iTunes–> Preferences–> General and checkmark “Books” in the list of items to show. Now, you should be able to click on Books in the Library section (per the previous step).
- NOTE: If there are no books listed in this Books area, you will need to download a free book from the iTunes Store to enable the dragging function to work. There will be a link to download books on this page if that’s the case. Click the link, then search for a free book, like “100 Quotations” which is very short, quick, and free download to get you started. Now that a book is present on this Library-Books area, you can go to the next step.
- Drag the ePub documents from your desktop into the Books window in iTunes.
- The lectures and books will now be copied to the device.
- NOTE: If you have installed iOS5 (or greater) on your Apple device, your books will sync with your iPhone device wirelessly. Enable wireless sync in iTunes–>Device–>Summary, and don’t “eject” your device in iTunes, just unplug the cable to start syncing wirelessly.
- If you still have iOS4, make sure books syncing is enabled in iTunes (click your device in left-hand column, then click “Books” at top of right-hand window, and check mark “Sync Books.” Connect your device and the books will be copied to it.
“Stanza,” a previously recommended epub book reader, is no longer supported by its author, and does not work well with Apple’s newer operating systems, beginning with iOS5. On 11/20/11, Stanza received a “final” update, and is now said to be compatible with iOS5, but some people are still experiencing crashes. Not recommended.
