How to Publish a Kindle Book with Amazon.com: Everything You Need to Know Explained Simplyby Cynthia Reeser
Synopses & Reviews
According to Jeff Bezos, the founder, president, and CEO of Amazon.com, Inc., for every 100 hardcover books that Amazon sells, it sells 143 Kindle e-books. Some publishers are considering advertising in their e-books and 83 percent of parents are encouraging their children to read books on an e-reader. When Amazon first launched the Kindle in 2007, it provided what many people felt was a major leap forward for digital publication of mainstream books. Until that point, publication had remained the one point where the Internet had not moved forward all that much – people want the feel of paper and the aesthetic of reading a book they can hold. Now, millions are looking to the low cost, high profit realm of digital publication through Kindle.
