Ebook Feeds

We offer several ebook feeds that you can use in your ereading app to browse, search, and download from our catalog. You can also add our feeds to your RSS client to get notified of new ebooks as they’re released, or to browse our catalog from your news reader.

Accessing the feeds

Our New Releases feeds are open to everyone. Our other feeds are a benefit of Patrons Circle membership.

  • Join the Patrons Circle by making a small donation in support of our mission. Patrons have full access to our ebook feeds for the duration of their gift.

  • Produce an ebook for Standard Ebooks to get lifetime access to our ebook feeds. (If you’ve already done that, contact us to enable your access.)

  • Corporate sponsors get access to all of our ebook feeds for the duration of their sponsorship. Contact us to chat about having your organization sponsor our mission.

  • Open source projects can get free access to all of our ebook feeds if they meet certain criteria. Contact us to discuss free access for your open source project.

If you’re a Patrons Circle member, when prompted enter your email address and leave the password field blank to access a feed.

OPDS 1.2 feeds

OPDS feeds, or “catalogs,” can be added to ereading apps on phones and tablets to search, browse, and download from our ebook catalog, directly in your ereader. Most modern ereading apps support OPDS catalogs.

They’re also perfect for scripting, or for libraries or other organizations who wish to download, process, and keep up to date with our catalog of ebooks.

Atom 1.0 feeds

Atom feeds can be read by one of the many RSS clients available for download, like Thunderbird. They contain more information than regular RSS feeds. Most RSS clients can read both Atom and RSS feeds.

Note that some RSS readers may show these feeds ordered by when an ebook was last updated, even though the feeds are ordered by when an ebook was first released. You should be able to change the sort order in your RSS reader.

RSS 2.0 feeds

RSS feeds are the predecessors of Atom feeds. They contain less information than Atom feeds, but might be better supported by some news readers.
