For those of you who do not have a Kindle, Nook, or Apple iPad-- you can download a Kindle app for free for the following operating systems: windows, Mac OS X, LINUX. For example, go to Amazon.com and look for the Kindle app. This allows you to download books for Kindle format and read them on your desktop/laptop. Same for Apple formatted books ePub (iTunes) (OS X 10.9 (Mavericks) and (maybe) 10.8 Mt Liom.

The page says "Your comment has been added" followed on the next line by "There was a problem adding your comment." And no comment appeared. So I'll try clicking a star this time in case that was the problem.
The comment was that the images for the first five books have broken links (i.e., no covers). I've tried on two browsers (Chrome and Safari).

Agree with Dave. It's been 6 months since his note, and downloading to a desktop/laptop is still not available. I travel with my laptop, not an apple, nook or kindle.

I think you should make you e-books available so that they can be down loaded onto the computer for those that don't own a kindle, nook or apple
