Gary,I agree. I actually got my husband to get really really good at this and now he is doing the formatting and publishing for others, and of course he is doing all of my books. It helps to do a professional publish because as you say,it is very important to make the right impression with our books. I am so happy that Amazon brought us the Kindle store. It is an amazing platform!
Free torrent downloading websites are also a great place to download free ebooks. If you are new to torrents websites and torrents file and want to know how to download and play torrents file. Learn from my earlier blog post where i have mentioned best websites to download free torrents . But, to download torrent files you need to have first installed P2P torrent clients applications or software on your system, only then you can run these free ebooks torrents to download free e-books directly to your computer or on any other portable devices.
Dailylit uses different concept, it delivers selected ebook in installements to you. Just pick your book and what time of day you want your installments delivered and you’re set. Don’t want to carry Anna Karenina on the train? DailyLit sends you just enough for your morning commute or coffee break. Find yourself with some extra time? Can’t wait a whole day for the next chapter of Moby Dick? Just tap “Next installment” and it’ll be on its way.
Though 1337x is essentially a torrent site, it has no creator as such. In fact, the moderators have already run out on the site as far as its operation and maintenance is concerned. At present, it is maintained and updated by none other than the fans and users themselves. This site is awesome for those who like a bit of everything, movies, TV series, games, books, etc. However, it may not be the best option for avid readers.
If you're going to self-publish ebooks or you are already selling them, then I do recommend that you buy an ebook reader or at least try reading an ebook on one of the many free apps. You need to understand the mindset of an ebook reader as well as their online experience. I read 99% ebooks these days, mostly on the Kindle Paperwhite and my iPhone Kindle app. I mostly download samples before buying, unless I know and trust the author. I also have preferences around pricing, and you will pick these things up if you try reading digitally.
No special apps needed! Project Gutenberg eBooks require no special apps to read, just the regular Web browsers or eBook readers that are included with computers and mobile devices. There have been reports of sites that charge fees for custom apps, or for the same eBooks that are freely available from Project Gutenberg. Some of the apps might have worthwhile features, but none are required to enjoy Project Gutenberg eBooks.
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.
You can also repurpose a book that is in the public domain. This means the copyright has expired and anybody can take the content of those books, and publish them, either updated or reworked in some way or as is. Did you see that book, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies that came out a few years ago? That’s a great example of reworking a public domain book.
E-Books Directory has an even smaller library with only 10,270 books in its database. However, whatever little is available, it guaranteed to be of superior quality in terms of both, content and the torrent file itself. We absolutely love how well they’ve organized the books. The site has about 678 categories so this is a great site for downloading books specifically suited to your interest. It also has other filters such as “New”, “Top 20”, and “Popular” to make discovering new books, a simpler process.

They also provide books for IT Security, AI and Robotics, Project Management and etc. If you want to become a programmer, this is very helpful for you.
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.

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.
Book-share is a boon for all those eBook fans out there. it is one of the best book torrent sitesavailable so far. Using this site, you can read the downloaded torrent files descriptions. Through the eBook author name, title and subject, you can effortlessly search for the desired downloaded eBook from the download list. The most painful aspect regarding this website is, it follows DMCA notion at its best. Which in turn makes using a VPN a mandatory way when you want to download your favorite eBook torrent.

You can create subscriptions, memberships, direct sales, provide extra benefits, give discounts on actions, customizable DRM and more.

It’s too expensive. At $36, it offers great value given all the stuff I packed into it, but people are used to paying less for ebooks. Even worse, by blowing out all my info in one book, I had no followup book to upsell the writers who bought the first book. I wasn’t creating a sales machine, like you want. I just had a one-off product. Again, I probably would have done better publishing a smaller ebook at a lower price.
