ExtraTorrent has an impressive collection of Books in the electronic formats such as AZW3, MOBI, EPUB, PDF, etc. Here you will be able to download eBook torrent in multiple genres such as fiction, classics, general reads, educational, best sellers, etc. I could quickly find some interesting eBooks such as A Midnight Dream, Time to Kill, The Essentials of Statistics, Secret to Drawing Realistic Facts by Carrie Stuart Parks, etc.
Hey Paul, I gather from what I read that you are charging 99 cents for your ebook. The most likely reason that people are not borrowing the book is the price. Customers who are involved in the lending program get to choose the book they borrow each month. They usually choose a higher priced book to get for free. If you were going to get 2 books in one month and one was 99 cents and one was $9.99 you would likely choose to get the $9.99 book for free and buy the 99 cent book. This is what KDP members are doing – choosing the books they borrow by looking at the books they want and choosing the more expensive book as their borrowed book and buying the less expensive books.
Great to see you here and awesome post. A great mix of the high level and details. Great timing too as I’m debating whether to convert my amazon book to kindle and also planning on writing a new one for kindle. I’m going to come back to read the comments because I see that there’s a lot of great info in there as well. Thanks again for the great post!
When speaking of ebook publishing services, there are several very different things in play. Firstly, there are companies pitching ‘author services’ or ‘publishing services’ for a price. These companies usually offer an extensive publishing service, starting from developmental editing to POD or e-distribution. While these companies can be similar at first glance, they are very different regarding their approach to the author and their books. There is a thin line between genuine publishing services and vanity publishing, as there are steps that can be expensive if done properly (like editing or cover design).
Marketing is all about creating awareness for your e-book: I don't have any secret marketing tips to offer, but what I can say is that you can't sell a book if no one knows it exists. Most of book marketing is simply about creating awareness and you need to do that however you can, whether it's through social media or blogging or passing out fliers on a street corner. (I made a business card for my book, which I pass out if someone seems interested in hearing more about it.)
Thank you, Jane, for such a prompt reply. And, well, if that’s true about Rogue (as it seems it might be), then, with the kind of work I’ve written, that puts me back to Square One. My reasoning was taken from an article by a Writer’s Digest article I saw from June of this year by Brian Klems entitled “How Can the Average Writer Make Money Self-publishing Ebooks.” The link is: http://www.writersdigest.com/online-editor/how-can-the-average-writer-make-money-self-publishing-e-books He said this re: Rogue Reader/MTM: “• Rogue Pricing.

Hi Paul, Thanks for this guide. Do all these steps 9esp uploading, payment etc) also work internationally, do you know? The reason I ask is because Kindle doesn’t work in Pakistan (where I am) and I can’t access the browser/web kindle app either. Thanks for your thoughtful and detailed post. Writing my first-for-Kindle ebook and hoping to work out the kinks soon!

Now it becomes easier to use EPUB to PDF Converter to convert EPUB books into Adobe PDF books. If you try to convert EPUB to PDF books, your EPUB ebooks will be read on various e-reader devices. It supports EPUB 1.0, EPUB 2.0 and other main version of EPUB files.

As of April 19, 2013, all pages have been updated and all links have been checked with LinkChecker and are working. I will be unavailable for most of the time during the next month and usually will not be able to respond to posts. However, I will be back after that, so any new sites or corrections to the listings that you post would be appreciated even though I may not be able to respond when you post. Steve

iBooks Author allows authors to create and publish their own e-books for sale in Apple’s iBookstore. The process is a bit more involved compared to other e-book services, but it’s a great option for design-savvy authors with multimedia-heavy books like children’s books or cookbooks. Authors can choose from several templates, including classic textbook, cookbook, or photo book and have the ability to add charts, tables, audio, and video to their books using widgets or “drag and drop.” To begin, authors must fill out a Paid Books Account application, which is reviewed in approximately two business days. Once authors receive a confirmation email, they must download a “delivery application” in order to deliver the book. Authors must have an Apple ID along with a valid credit card on file to sell books. iBooks Author does not offer a conversion service, but Apple does offer a list of approved “aggregators” who will format and deliver your book to the iBookstore for a fee -- these include Bookwire, Ingram, INscribe, Smashwords, and BookBaby. Royalties are 70% of list price with no fees. ISBNs are not provided.
Someone asked in the comments here about books in the Peter Pan series and I thought that it would be a good idea to gather together the various locations for the books in a children's series.  Since I did not want to take up further web pages here at Gizmo's, I set up a site at Google Sites to provide the links for these books.  As of now, I have listed only one series, but if there is interest I will post up more.  Please let me know in the comments below (or at the Google site) if you are interested.

The Oz Series  Most people think there is only the one book (Wizard of Oz), but there are 40 "official" books in the Oz series and several more "unofficial" Oz books.  The official series started in 1900 and continued until 1963.  I have located copies of the first 38 of the 40 official Oz books and have provided links to them.  I have also located a few of the unofficial Oz works and will be posting up those links soon.  This was one of my favorites as a child and I hope you enjoy them also.
We have received reports that OneDrive is no longer working as expected. This is one of the cloud storage options on eBook download pages. Because this is unlikely to be fixed soon, please consider direct downloads (i.e., "Save as..." to store eBook files on your own computer). For mobile devices and ereaders, try side-loading as described in our mobile reader how-to.

Maybe I am the only one who cares but I sure would like to see a category for "Philosophy Books" The are NOT "Religion and Spirituality" books. That may be too technical a division for many of the website owners you list but it would sure help. There is a vast difference between the topic of revealed faith and belief compared to reason. If fact St Thomas Aquinas carefully worked out the difference at the start of his Summa Theologiae 800 years ago based on sound, deductive reasoning.

hello there i am a such a newbie in the blogsphere…..I am planning to open a new blog and its domain is christologic.com and i wouldn’t mind to have your feedback on it since my blog would be writing about personal experiences, opinions, and travel. But i am planning to open another blog where i can publish short stories and poem, can you give me an advice on this?

Indeed, it’s pretty confusing out there. Rogue Reader is a new model of publishing, what I generally call partnership publishing. You don’t pay to get published, nor do they pay you an advance. It’s a profit-share model, and they invest in things like editing, design, etc. But like a traditional publisher, you still have to get your work accepted, and their selectivity, from what I hear, is on the same level as trying to gain acceptance by an agent or Big Five house.
It's also worth noting that you can mix and match and go direct with Amazon (KDP), uploading your own file and managing your account, and then use an aggregator such as Smashwords for additional distribution to other e-book stores. At this point there are no hard and set rules and, as I said in the beginning, the e-book market is very fluid, seeing significant changes almost every month. As always, please feel free to post your opinion in the comments section, particularly if you've had experience publishing your e-book already and can share your observations with others. And remember, Google is your best friend for the finer parts of self-publishing, such as converting a Word file to a PDF.
You just need to create an outline for the book to follow, set a schedule for when you’re going to write (if it’s original work) or when you’re going to work on it, how you will market the book and when each task needs to be done, and set a goal publication date when it will be offered on sale. It’s a matter of setting aside time each day. You can’t just work on this when you “feel” like it… otherwise, it’ll never get done.
So, to check this problem, you need to opt for an VPN. It hides your IP from the regulating authorities as well as the copyright owners of that eBook and helps you safely download the eBook. It can also unblock blocked websites in your region. As your IP is masked, there is no trace of your location, so every location restriction gets lifted in this case.
Planet eBook isn’t as big as the sites mentioned above, in terms of its book catalogue. It currently has only about 50,000 titles in its library. That said, it is one of the fastest growing e-book torrenting site that allows users to download at no cost whatsoever. The site is quite straightforward and runs pretty smoothly. If you’re a fan of classics, look no further than Planet ebook!
As one of the largest online sources for eBooks, Amazon has a large self-publishing arm with Kindle Direct Publishing.

This website, no doubt, is known to have one the most user-friendly interfaces as well as visual designs in the list of the torrent sites for e-books. Categorized into a wide range of divisions like Genres, Book Titles, Language, Authors, Popular, etc, this website is known to host nearly 50,000 free titles of e-books. And if you yourself are an author, you can surely make use of this website to promote your work.
From flicks to fitness to food delivery, literally everything is now digital. Then how could the good old books be left behind? Though every book-lover would agree that nothing comes close to print books, e-books are actually quite convenient. The biggest drawback of print books is that they take up a lot of space. Also, in most cases, they’re more expensive compared to their digital counterparts and could prove to be bulky, especially while traveling. If you’re an ardent reader, you’ll be able to relate with this.
Scribd has long been the go-to spot for sharing text-based documents, but it’s been in the news recently for its new, subscription-based premium reader service (unlimited books for $8.99 a month). Now that the service has been monetized, e-books are available either to purchase separately (outside the subscription model) or via its subscription service and are available in both the Scribd store and Scribd apps with royalties at “80% of revenue.” Unlike with other publishers that require an e-pub file, authors can upload any file type (pdf, word doc, rtf) for free and make changes easily by uploading a new file —while still retaining the document’s statistics, comments, and URL. Scribd emphasizes its facilitation of discoverability with over 80 million monthly readers and a curated homepage of selected titles based on the subscriber’s interests. It also bills itself as a social publisher that supports comments on author’s work and allows embedding of documents in blogs and other websites. Authors must register for a free Scribd account. Authors control pricing and preview options and have access to “instant analytics.”
'The Book-hunter in London' is the outcome not only of material which has been accumulating for many years past, from published and unpublished sources, but also of a long and pleasant intercourse with the leading book-collectors and booksellers in London, not to mention a vigorous and constant prosecution of one of the most pleasant and instructive of hobbies. The author has freely availed himself of the information in the works of Dibdin, Nichols, and other writers on the subject, but their statements have been verified whenever possible, and acknowledgements have been made in the proper places to the authorities laid under contribution.

Well, seeing as how it was my first book, my objective was to promote it as much as possible, to spread my writing, get people to like me, and to see where I stand with my audience, as well as inspire and enrich one’s life. I could have stuck with PDF format (because it looked simply amazing) and used it as a blog subscription, but I wanted to try something else.
It all depends on what you’re knowledgable in. If you’re writing about a specific craft that you’re well-versed in, your blog is used to educate your audience on useful tips and insights that you learned and used through your own experiences. For example, Copyblogger provides insight on publishing, writing, blogging, marketing, and so forth. Their product varies from WordPress themes and tools used within.

Thank you for a well-written and well-formatted post. I’ve tried to scan all 182 comments and answers (!) but forgive me if this has already been addressed… I’m going to publish with KDP then opt-out @ 90 days so I can sell via my own site. I believe Word play better than Pages with KDP due to conversion issues to .mobi. My content will consist of stories, photographs and recipes – so I anticipate formatting nightmares.

Create an arresting cover: When it comes to e-books, everything starts with the cover image. Creating an eye-catching, professional-looking cover that also looks good small (it has to stand out as a thumbnail image, since it's being sold online) is easier said than done, but it can really make a difference in terms of sales. Ideally, you should hire a graphic designer who has some experience creating book covers. From a production standpoint, an e-book cover is easier to create than a cover for a print book (you just need a JPEG with decent resolution), but it shouldn't look out of place among traditionally published e-books. I can't tell you how many bad self-published covers are out there.

It can be a fun and friendly competition to get people excited about your book. And there’s no better platform than Social Media sites to do just that. You can call it the “Know my Book?” photo contest. All participants need to do, is to take a creative photo with the words “Know my Book?” or “Help Me Launch.” The three best images might receive the book or you can offer an additional first prize for a Kindle or a digital camera.
