Yes it is. They are not NewtonBook files but rather Paperback. But
when you are downloading a file and specifying the font and size it says
"Create Newton Press Book" which is not quite accurate.

Regardless don't forget about their books
are NewtonBooks with bookmarking and other features. They also have a
plugin for Firefox to view Newtonbooks on your Desktop.
