Tips on Website Usage
Organization of Products and Categories
With so many ebooks it becomes a challenge to neatly categorize them all to help you find what you are looking for. Our main categories are: Magic
. Magic deals with tricks of any kind such as sleight-of-hand with cards and coins. The focus here is on trick descriptions, how these effects can be accomplished. Gambling deals with games for money played mostly in casinos such as poker, blackjack and roulette. Here the emphasis is on strategy, how to improve your game and game protection, how to avoid being cheated. The game protection significantly overlaps with magic. The magician uses secret moves to accomplish a magic effect, whereas the cheater uses often the same or similar moves to get an advantage in the game. In the Games section you will find games which are typically not associated with gambling, such as chess, bridge and backgammon among other games. Non-Fiction is a huge category where you will find anything from business literature to technology, software, medical, legal literature, study guides, and so on. Fiction includes everything from a thrilling crime novel to funny short stories and engaging romance.
Each of these main categories has a number of subcategories. Ebooks in these subcategories deal either exclusively or predominantly with the subject of the subcategory. For example, an ebook in the Magic->Cards section deals with card tricks. There might be a chapter on theory or a coin trick sprinkled in, but if it is in the Cards category the bulk of the ebooks contents is about cards. Ebooks which cover several subcategories are typically found directly under one of the higher categories. Take for example an ebook like the Tarbell Course, which covers almost any area in magic. This one is found directly in the Magic section and not in any of Magic's subcategories. We hope that this logic will help you find what you are looking for. As with any categorization, there will be border cases. You might find such cases listed in more than one category. If you can't locate an ebook by browsing through the categories, we recommend you use our search tool, which can be found top center on every page. And in the worst case, you can always contact us.
Ebook File Formats
When you want to buy an ebook you have to decide what file format(s) you want the ebook in. Not all ebooks are available in all formats. The available formats are listed beside the 'Add to Cart' button. We primarily offer PDF and EPUB. PDF can come in several varieties. When it says DRM-PDF then you know it is a protected PDF and you will need Adobe Digital Editions to view it. PDF_facsimile is a book which shows all the original page scans and it uses the text-behind-image method for searching. Essentially you get each page as an image, the original scan of that particular page, plus the searchable text which sits behind the image and is not visible, but searchable. The PDF_facsimile ebooks are typically large files and not ideal for mobile devices.
