Prologue: The Basics

This introductory section covers basic information about the contents of your e-GO! Library drive and how to choose the correct ile format for the device you will use to read these books.

When you open the e-GO! Library (refer to the following tutorial under Section 1 of this Guide for instructions), you should see contents similar, but perhaps not identical, to these:
The main folder is e-GO! Library, which contains all 1,250 books of the library. Click on this folder to open it.

The e-GO! Library folder is organized into three subfolders: ePub, Kindle, and PDF, which represent the three formats available for each book.
The format you should choose will depend on which device/system you intend to use to read your books. Here is a breakdown of the three formats (you will ind more detailed descriptions of these formats on the next page):


The Kindle format (.mobi) is speciically for use with the Amazon Kindle reading devices or Amazon Kindle apps.

Kindle devices are available from Amazon ( Alternatively, *Kindle apps may be downloaded and installed on other devices such as computers, tablets and smartphones. You may download Kindle apps through this web link: Click Here

*Recent reports indicate the Amazon Kindle apps are no longer functioning well on Android devices. If you are using an Android device, we recommend you use the ePub formatted books in conjunction with the Google Play Books app.


The ePub format is the primary one used for most mobile devices, such as eReaders, tablets and smartphones. The devices that prefer the ePub format include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch
  • Android devices, including Samsung Galaxy phones and tablets
  • NOOK
  • Kobo Reader
  • Nearly all eReaders other than Kindle


The PDF format is typically best for reading on the computer itself. For computer reading, we recommend using the Adobe PDF Reader, which you can download free from this link: Click Here

Once you have determined which format to use, Kindle, ePub or PDF, click on that folder. Within each of these format folders, you will see three subfolders: Classics, Fiction and Non-Fiction. The e-Go! Library contains 1,250 books: The Classics folder contains 250 books; Fiction contains 650 books; and Non-Fiction contains 350 books.
Each of the three main sections–Classics, Fiction and Non-Fiction–is further subdivided into book categories. For example, if you click on the Classics folder you will see that it contains a number of category subfolders, as in the image below. This subfolder also includes an Excel Index which lists and describes all the books included within the Classics section:
Click on one of the subfolders – Drama, for example. You will now see all books categorized as Drama within the Classics section. In this example, we selected the PDF format earlier, so these titles all have .pdf extensions. If you have a PDF reader and select one of these titles, the book should now open for you.


Each of the three sections – Classics, Fiction and Non-Fiction – also contain Indexes which list by category all titles included within that section.

The Indexes are Excel documents and require a program that can open/read Excel documents. If you do not have one installed, you may download a free Excel viewer online through this link: Click Here

Alternatively, you can view a searchable list of all titles included in your e-GO! Library online by visiting this webpage:

The books within the Indexes are sorted by Category. The indexes show in list form each book’s title, author(s), and a brief description of its contents, as seen here:

You are now prepared to proceed to the tutorials for detailed instructions on how to install and transfer the e-Go! Library for your mobile reading pleasure.
