eBook Week

Ebook Week

ebook readerIt’s Read An eBook Week this month. March 6 – 12th. That’s right, the ebook is officially 40 years old this year and to all you die hard hardcover and paperback readers, I totally understand. I like the feeling of paper in my hand as well, the smell of a new book,  BUT the future of publishing is upon us. And I just as easily fell in love with both my Kindle and my iPad. I don’t want you to miss the boat.

According to Amazon, for the first time since they’ve been in business, they now sell more ebooks then they do physical books. Barnes and Noble’s is selling a great deal of ebooks as well, especially with the release of their revamped eReader – Nook.

Major New York publishers are on the ebook train kicking and screaming – but they’re here. It’s rare now to see a major book release that doesn’t have a digital version of some sort.

Let’s face it, internet marketers were ahead of their time:) Your clients and customers learn through various forms of media and the ebook is one of them – actually the major one. If you’re not on board, it’s time that you get with the program and learn how to write and publish ebooks that your prospects will find irresistible.

The easiest way to create your first ebook is to repurpose articles you already have sitting around on your hard drive, and I’ll talk about this more in depth. So stay tuned!

New To eBooks?
This week is a great time to purchase your first ebook and give it a whirl. If you don’t own an eReader (Kindle, iPad, Nook, Sony) or a smartphone with an eReader app (Android, iPhone) – you can always purchase and read one on your desktop or laptop. You’ll just download the PDF version.

    I work in a library and I know e-books are probably the wave of the future, but I’m old school and love the feel of a book in my hands…. I think it will be awhile before world of total ebook occurs. (Even though I do have plans to create an e-book by the end of the year…

    I made a bet with my wife a couple days ago. The bet was that the majority of printed books, magazines and newspapers will be obsolete in the next 10 years. We see more and more newspapers and magazines going out of business every year. The writing is on the wall. Yes, I love reading a great printed book and tradition dies hard, but if you check the sales of Kindles and Nook’s, they have dramatic increases each year. Yesterday, a report came out that Barnes & Noble and Amazon are selling more ebooks than printed versions. As was the typewriter, goes the book.
