The downloadable bundles are zipped. After download, just unzip, and the book will be ready to transfer to either your Kindle or your iPad. You will find the files, epub and mobi, in the inner folder. 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.
There are currently two ways to transfer epub files to the app Books. 1) Using iTunes: Attach your iPad (or iPhone) to iTunes on your computer. Drag (transfer) the unzipped epub file directly to the iTunes-folder Books on your device. 2) Download the zip-file bundle directly to your iPad (or iPhone) from this site. It will appear in the Files app. Click the downloaded zip file, then click on the epub file. It will appear and be saved in the Books app.
