Volow is a browser-based eBook reader and Volow Monthly is our eBook subscription service. With it, you can read eBooks you already own*, buy individual eBooks or subscribe to a Collection of titles for a fixed monthly fee. It’s that simple. No new apps or software to download and install – just read eBooks in a web browser on a phone, tablet, laptop or desktop PC. Everything is stored in the cloud so readers can log in and continue reading on any device at any time. Volow is designed to be quick, simple and to deliver a great reading experience.
* Volow works with any eBooks in epub format that don't include DRM (digital rights management) - see our main FAQ for more details
As you would expect with an ereader, Volow makes it easy to search through eBooks, bookmark content and even add notes. No more rummaging through indexes or losing that vital fact or tip, with Volow it's quick and simple to search by keyword, bookmark content and add your own notes.
Being browser-based means that Volow eBooks can contain more than just text. As well as graphics and images this can also include live links to relevant content online, video, audio and even interactive content - and all of it just works - no upgrades or new software required.
Volow Monthly is a subscription service that gives you access to our tailored eBook
For a fixed monthly fee you will get full and unlimited access to a range of books grouped together by theme or publisher. No long-term subscription terms, no penalties for cancelling, just a simple monthly price and access to the rapidly expanding range of titles.
At launch we are offering the Harriman Collection, made up of more than 350 top finance titles from a range of high profile authors for a monthly fee from just £10.00, and the Small Business Collection which includes over 50 titles aimed at entrepreneurs from just £5.99 per month.
These Collections will continue to grow as new titles are released meaning you will always have access to the latest and best titles and we will also be expanding the range and scope of the Collections available through Volow to deliver even more great content to our subscribers.
For the monthly fee you get access to a wealth of great financial content, but what about the authors of the eBooks? We share all subscription revenue with our Authors and they receive payment based on how much of their content is read in a month. So the more you read of your favourite author's books, the more they earn.
We believe that buying and reading an eBook should be an enjoyable experience. We believe that it should be straightforward, simple to do and not require new software or apps. It should work on all devices and it should offer maximum flexibility in how you buy and read the eBooks you want.
We also believe that an eBook shouldn't just try and slavishly copy a print book. Does anyone really need fake pages or pretend page turning sounds? No, we don't think anyone does. Ebooks should be presented brilliantly and clearly and in a way that makes the most of the latest technologies, not in a way that tries to replicate a print book (we've got nothing against, print books – in fact we still make those too – but we don't think eBooks should be an imitation of the print version).
We also think that the creators of the content – the authors – should be paid fairly for their work and that you – the reader – should get great value for money.

If you buy an eBook from the Harriman House website or have obtained free access to a Harriman eBook as a buyer of the print edition you can read it with Volow - simply follow the link when you buy the book or register for the free eBook. No new software, or downloading of files required, simply read on whatever device you choose.
Simply upload eBooks that you already own to Volow to benefit from our great reading experience. Any eBooks purchased from Harriman House will work as will eBooks from many other publishers and stores – the only ones that won't are ones designed for the Kindle or those with DRM (digital rights management) – unfortunately in those cases you're tied to whoever you bought the eBook from!
