      With the explosion recently of the Kindles and the Nooks and the iPads, it's no wonder. And the markup % on those files is absolutely ridiculous and saves on publishing costs and many other start-up problems for the author / publisher.
      I haven't personally been in the market, but I know a few who are and they're dedicated.

      a major paper bookstore has gone broke in Australia.

      What's involved with ebooks?  What kind of software?  Can it be a very small book?  Sell on own website?

    I've been trying to come up with ideas for ebooks.

      Since Ebooks are sold as down-loadable and not indexed on the net, you can use some of your hubs, blog post and/or website articles for the bulk of your content.

      I'm going to gather up my best Disney tips, Orlando vacation information and stuff and make several E-books out of them. smile

      When I have time,,,,, hmm

        The most hubs I have on one topic is on the Impressionist artists. The main part is the pictures which I won't be able to add. Maybe I could just post the biographies but I don't know how much interest that would generate.

        But...I do have some about cats on Triond...hmmm. Since I am now unemployed I have to time to do something about that...I want to avoid getting hooked on the Young and Restless again...

    Very interesting, I like the feel of actually having a book in my hands, but at the same time, you can easily carry a whole library of books on an iPhone or iPad.

    Thanks for sharing this information about e-books.  It will be interesting to see how the publishing industry changes over the next decade.
