All four of the downloadable files are zipped. This was not because I needed to save space. WordPress, the software I am using for my webpage, does not allow files in .epub or .mobi formats. After download, just unzip, and the book will be ready to transfer to either your Kindle or your iPad. A good Open Source program for unzipping files is 7-Zip.
Transferring your mobi file directly to your Kindle is simple. Connect your Kindle to your computer with the Kindle USB cable. Move the mobi file into the documents folder on your Kindle. The file has to be unzipped beforehand.
(2019 Note) With new Ipads/IOS versions: Send the epub file on a email to yourself and open the file in iBooks.
(Older method) Open iTunes. Under File click on Add File to Library. Browse for your unzipped epub file and add to iTunes. Update your iPad. If your iPad is not set up to auto-update, you can just drag the file over to Books on your device.
