For a tutorial about the basics of citing books see the below resource from APA Style Central:


Book Reference

Learn how to format references for whole books, including both authored books and edited books.

You can also find a sample reference citations for citing e-books by going to the Learn section of APA Style Central and searching for e-book using the small search box to the right.  Then, click Sample References to see the examples.

 

If citing an e-book from a Library database, you'll typically follow the format "Authored book (Kindle, iBook, or other proprietary e-book version), with URL instead of DOI."
