Another Look At Calibre!

I’ve written about Calibre in the past, but to be honest, I kind of ignored it since my review. Last night I found mention of it on another website and I decided to take another look! All I can say is, “Wow! They’ve evolved!”

One of the coolest things it does is convert almost any ebook into the format that’s compatible with yours! The only exception seems to be those ebooks that are DRM protected.

You can also search for an ebook and it will find all available sources that sell it, inform you if it’s DRM protected, and provide the prices allowing you to choose the least expensive! That saves you money!

Calibre also does what it was first designed to do. It manages your ebook collection.

They call themselves the one stop solution to all your ebooks needs. You can watch a demo and download your free copy of Calibre by clicking here. I think you’ll like it!

eBook Sales Top Paperback Books!

The Association of American Publishers recently published sales results for February, 2011. Surprise! The publishing format in #1 place was ebooks! The AAP also reported ebook sales increased 202.3% over February, 2010! You can read the report by clicking here.

The report goes on to say, “Many publishers report that e-Book readers who enjoy a newly-released book will frequently buy an author’s full backlist”. That should be making both authors and publishers happy!

Personally, when I’m reading a story unfolding through a series of books, as I finish one volume I immediately purchase the next one without even getting out of my chair!

I’ve got a meeting to attend so I’ve got to cut this short. Thanks for stopping by!
