The Amazon Kindle Reader for the PC

The Kindle Reader for The PC

Amazon has just released the Kindle for PC

It’s free.

This isn’t hardware – it’s software that you run on your laptop or desktop computer (Windows only for now) that allows you to read Kindle encoded eBooks.

This is good news. I’ve finally been able to check  MobiPocket books that I created for a handheld Mobi Reader (like the Palm) on a Kindle to see if the formatting translates – and I am pleased to say it does.

If you make eBooks – you’ve probably heard you can just upload a text file or Word doc to Amazon and have the file automatically translated to Kindle format. While that is technically true, most of those books look bad. They certainly don’t look like professional ebooks.

Learning to make MobiPocket books is relatively easy – and Amazon, which owns MobiPocket, automatically adds any book in the Mobi catalog to the Kindle catalog.

There is money in making ebooks for the Kindle – so look to this as a new revenue stream.

New technology makes it easy and inexpensive to reach more people. Webinars and Podcasts are becoming a common way to communicate and build a community.
