What are the obligations and benefits of joining Sanje Book Family?

Membership of Sanje Book Family (SBF) is a loyalty reward programme. SBF is free of charge for the member and does not entail any obligations. At a time when the so-called public media are mostly no longer fulfilling their mission, when they represent the private interests of their "owners" and lobbies instead of the public and cultural interest, it is of utmost importance for both the publishing house, which remains faithful to its mission of spreading awareness and knowledge, and for the readers to maintain and nurture their mutual contacts. As a member of SBF, you will enjoy the maximum benefits, discounts and privileges exclusive to SBF members. You will be informed first-hand about the projects and new editions of one of the most renowned book and music publishers in Slovenia. Soon we will also start rewarding your loyalty. All this without any material obligations. More about the Sanje Book Family.

How can I publish my book with Sanje Publishing House? Do you accept manuscripts?

We are a very small team at Sanje, so unfortunately we are very short of time to read manuscripts. The so-called "market laws", burdened with many administrative hurdles, have a devastating effect on a small book market like Slovenia. This is unlikely to change as long as we remain subservient to the ideologies driven by the imperialist powers that are currently dominant.

However, it is true that you can send us your manuscript by e-mail to, but we recommend that you study our mission statement and catalogue beforehand.

We receive many unsolicited manuscripts and are unable to keep a record of them, so a reminder that we do not return manuscripts is in order.



You can buy e-books by Sanje Publishing in the Sanje online bookstore.
Sanje eBooks are watermarked (so-called "social DRM") and without traditional DRM (short for "Digital Rights Management"), and will work on all devices, but cannot be uploaded to websites or file-sharing networks. So we are betting on trust, which is sorely lacking today at all levels! Let's get it back!
When you buy an e-book, you can download it as an epub file (for all readers or devices except Kindle) or as a mobi file (for Kindle). Both files will remain available in the e-library on your personal account for further downloads.
Depending on your e-book reader, you can just click the link to the file (iPad/iPhone) or receive it wirelessly via email (Kindle) or connect your device and drag and drop the downloaded file.
If you would prefer to buy your Sanje eBooks directly from Amazon, Apple, B&N, Google or Sony, you will receive them in the usual way, with Digital Rights Management (DRM) applied.
It should be mentioned here that you will not find most of the e-books published by Sanje at these retailers.


Start reading instantly on your iPad, iPhone or Kindle

If you are using iOS (iPad or iPhone), you will be able to click on the link to download the epub file and select "Open in iBooks". If you want to read the e-book on other devices, you can use Sync Collections in iBooks or receive the epub file by email and open it in Mail. You can also log in to your account on the Sanje website at any time and go to the "My eBooks" tab in your user account to re-download the epub file.

If you use a Kindle or the Kindle app, you will have a Send-to-Kindle email address that ends with (usually, but you can find it on the Manage your Devices page on Manage your Kindle). On the Manage your Kindle page, you'll need to go to Personal Document Settings to authorise the email address to send the eBook. Sanje website can then wirelessly deliver a mobi file to this address if you click the "Email ebook" button under the book on the order history page. You can save this email address for future purchases, which will then be instant and wireless.

Or you can, of course, download it to your Kindle, Nook, Kobo, etc.

For some e-readers, you will need to download the file to your computer, then connect the device to your computer - probably with a USB cable - and drag the file into the books or documents folder on the device.

Save the mobi file locally, connect your Kindle to the USB cable and open Finder, File Manager or Windows Explorer (a program that shows drives and folders) and you will see a new device called SDCARD on the left-hand side. There should be a folder called My Files or My Documents in SDCARD: copy the mobi file into it. Then when you open the Documents section of your Kindle, you should see it.

Nook, Kobo, etc.
Download the epub file to your computer, connect your Nook with a USB cable and a new drive or device called MyNookColor will appear. If you have an sdcard in your Nook, the SDCARD will also appear. Copy the epub file to the MyNookColor/my files/books folder.

Reading an e-book on a desktop computer

On a Mac, you can download and open epub files in iBooks. For Windows, you will first need to download an e-book reader such as Adobe Digital Editions. Once installed, you can download and open the epub file.

If your e-book is displayed as a zip file, this means you still need to download the software needed to read it.

Still having problems?

Sanje eBooks are DRM-free and epub files are the global standard for eBooks - we've done our best to make them readable on any device or computer. If you think something has gone wrong with your download, you can re-download the eBook at any time from your library page in your user account.

If you are still having problems, please email us at with your order number and we will do our best to help you.

1. Which device and app you are using,
