Gifts for Mother’s Day

Mothers mean the world to us! They raised us and helped us become who we are today. Sometimes they can drive us a little bit crazy with their comments or suggestions but we know they mean well… right? ;-)

PDF files on iBooks

One thing I get asked frequently is how to open PDF files on iBooks.

What is a PDF file? PDF stands for Portable Document Format. It is a readable file format that cannot be modified, unless you have a special program to do so.


We see PDF files on a daily basis. For example, when we make a donation, we often receive a tax receipt by email as a PDF file. We may also receive invoices or event announcements as PDF files.

Many sample book chapters also come as PDF files
