The citation for an e-book is the same regardless of which type of e-reader is used to read the e-book. However, we recommend the following rules if you’d like to include information about your specific e-reader in your citation.

For MLA, the kind of e-reader can be added to the end of the citation as supplemental information.

Example:

Rowling, J. K. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. E-book ed., Pottermore Publishing, 2015. Kindle.

For APA, cite the source as you would a regular book but add the DOI number or URL at the end.

Example:

Rowling, J. K. (2015). Harry Potter and the chamber of secrets. Pottermore Publishing. https://www.amazon.com/Harry-Potter-Chamber-Secrets-Rowling-ebook/dp/B0192CTMW8

For Chicago, like in MLA, we recommend citing the source as a book and adding a description at the end of the reference.

Example:

Rowling, J. K. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. New York: Pottermore Publishing, 2015. Kindle edition.

You can modify the citation on EasyBib by clicking Edit, and then clicking the custom edit link.
