AARP Bookstore FAQ

Answers to your questions about how to order and download books from the AARP Bookstore

Where do I go for technical assistance and questions about payments, delivery and return policies?

Because your needs will vary depending on where you're purchasing e-books or paper books, check with the online bookstore tied to your device. These following links should help you get started:

Apple iBooks (iPad)

Barnes & Noble

Books-a-Million (BAM!)

Google eBookstore

Kobo eBooks

Sony Reader Store

What computer hardware or special software do I need to download an e-book?

You can download an e-book to any computer, PC or Mac, and most any mobile device, including e-book readers, smartphones and tablets. All you need is a Web browser and an Internet connection. While books aren't typically large files, for fast and reliable downloads we still recommend a high-speed Internet connection instead of a dial-up modem. Some e-book readers will offer wireless downloads, too, via a Wi-Fi connection or 3G (cellular) connectivity.

AARP chooses books based on the needs and interests of our members and the 50+ population, to help keep them informed, connected and living their best lives.
