The future is digital content and has already begun. At the time of writing, Kindle doubled the sales of e-books in the United States. Thousands of books and catalogs are sent daily.
The Kindle was chosen as a favorite by Oprah in 2008, making it popular. This is a handheld digital book reader tool that connects to the Internet and instantly downloads books from the Amazon digital catalog. It has a screen that is much easier to read and a user interface is more similar to translating a page so there is no scrolling.
Digital books (or e-books) are generally much cheaper than physical books. With wireless internet access you can find, buy and read instantly (currently in the US only). The catalog contains books, magazines, newspapers and blogs that are becoming increasingly popular every day. The device itself holds hundreds of books, magazines and newspapers, and you can add more memory, so you always get reading material.
Readers love printed books, but they also like the Internet because of the speed, simplicity and price of e-books.
How to Buy a Book for the Kindle
You can upload the book to Kindle in the appropriate format on Amazon Desktop Publishing.
The process is as follows:
(1) Sign in with your Amazon account (or create a new one).
(2) Add a new item (ie a book) on the screen and add all the information – ISBN, blurb, search keywords.
(3) Upload the book. Easy to charge, but the formatting may be wrong. They have formatting documents, but especially HTML. From Microsoft Word, you can save the book in HTML and edit it directly. There is a help forum on the site if you have trouble.
(4) Enter the price. To do this, make sure you look at other people's books and your prices.
(5) Enter your bank account and US tax number. You must have a valid Social Security Number (SSN), Tax Identification Number (TIN), or Employer ID (EIN) for publishing on the Kindle (so non-US residents may not use it).
Your book will be on the Kindle within 48 hours and sold.
