If you purchase an eBook, you will receive (electronically) a list of the items you have purchased, and a link to each download. You have 5 days from the date of purchase, to download the items (click on the Past Orders tab). If you’re still stuck, have you tried doing the following?
1) go to http://www.homeschoolhowtos.com/store/login to log in
2) go to http://www.homeschoolhowtos.com/store/list/category/free_e_books and add to your cart any eBooks you want to download (note a quantity, 1, then click back button to return to the free eBooks listing)
3) when you’re done adding to your cart, click the button below on your screen to Proceed to Checkout; click the next 2 blue buttons (you don’t have to fill in any fields at this point, nor billing info, since your items are free). The next screen should show you: Store: Order Results. Now you can click on the button below each eBook title to download it.
Instructions on how to download the Kindle version of a book:
Log back in to homeschoolhowtos.com to download the Kindle file, just as you would a regular pdf e-book file. Save it (rather than opening it on your computer); download it to your computer. Then, do you know what your dedicated Send-to-Kindle email address is? (If you don’t, go to Amazon.com and open your Kindle managing account to find out that email address. It was assigned to your Kindle reading device when you registered that with Amazon. If you haven’t done that already, open your Kindle reader, click the Menu button, and follow the Sign-in/Register link.) Once you have signed into your Amazon account and have clicked on the “Manage Your Kindle” tab, then click on “Personal Document Settings” (over on the left, under “Your Kindle Account”) and select “Add a new approved e-mail address” under “Approved Personal Document E-mail List.” Enter the e-mail address (whichever one you will be using to send your downloaded homeschoolhowtos.com file to your Kindle email account) you’d like to add and click Add Address. Next, using your email function, attach the file you downloaded (that you saved to your computer) and email it to your dedicated Kindle email address. Finally, turn on your Kindle, click to open book, and select this one.
If you have trouble opening the Kindle file, check that you have the updated Kindle version for PC. Especially if you receive a message like this: “cannot open this book. This version of the Kindle application has expired and can no longer be used. Please update to a newer version.”

Try directly copying the username and password that was sent you, using the Ctrl & C keys, then plopping it in using the Ctrl & V keys. This is particularly helpful if you chose a number 1 or the letter l, because they look so similar.

To download Adobe Acrobat to read PDF files: before you can view it, you will need a recent (7.0 or above) version of Adobe Acrobat Reader. If you do not already have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your PC, click here and follow the instructions for downloading, opening, and installing Adobe Acrobat Reader (it’s free), then return to this page. After you have a recent version of Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your PC, you may click on the article’s title at the beginning of this paragraph to access it directly.
