Effective spring 2019, all Human Kinetics ebooks will be delivered through VitalSource Bookshelf—a modern, secure ebook platform. After purchasing an ebook, you’ll receive a code that can be redeemed through the Bookshelf website (using a VitalSource account).
Once the ebook code is redeemed, you’ll have access to all the Bookshelf benefits:
Smoothly navigate to your Human Kinetics ebook within moments of purchase.
Bookshelf syncs your last page read, bookmarks, notes, and highlights across devices so you can always pick up where you left off.
You can download your ebook if you wish to use it without Internet access, or you can keep it on the app to save memory on your device.
The Read Aloud feature uses a text-to-speech tool so you don’t have to do all the reading (unless you want to).
The search tool allows you to look for a topic across your entire collection of ebooks.
As part of their commitment to support every user, VitalSource conforms to level AA of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.
Do you have an Adobe Digital Editions ebook from Human Kinetics?
For a limited time, any Adobe Digital Editions ebook that was purchased through HK can be added into VitalSource Bookshelf!
To receive a code for moving your ebook to the Bookshelf platform, enter the email address you used to purchase ebooks on our website, select all ebooks you would like to convert for use on Bookshelf, and redeem the codes at Bookshelf.VitalSource.com.
Note: If you have already completed your download for the Adobe ebook, you will continue to have access to that version in addition to the Bookshelf ebook. However, you will lose the ability to download the Adobe version.
Effective immediately, Human Kinetics will no longer deliver ebooks through Adobe Digital Editions. To avoid loss of your product downloads, you will need to convert products to VitalSource BookShelf.
Whether you’re ready to get started or uncertain if you qualify, it only takes a moment to check your email address and to unlock the great benefits that Bookshelf has to offer!
