Kindle Formatting: The Complete Guide is now available

cover image

It's finally done! I have been working hard on my book for at least the last 6 months. I originally wanted to release it in October, but that fell through. Then I started eBook Architects and had no spare time to think. Then the Kindle 2 came out and I had to revise my information and expand some things.

As of this afternoon, it is now completely finished and up for sale. You can find out all the details in the new Book section of the website.

I have just bought your book and I am glad that I did. I think the single non-scrolling page presentation with easy page turning is a fantastic evolution.

Unfortunately in Australia, we don't yet have the full Amazon Kindle service. So I want to experiment with an iPhone.

Do you have any opinion about the importance of the ink screen viz a viz using an iPhone as the device.

Also do you have any thoughts about the screen size limitations of the iPhone as an e-reader.

Thanks for your, I am happy to recommend it.

Great! I am glad you have found the book to be useful.

I think the eInk screen is much better on the eyes, and the larger screen size offers some advantages over the iPhone, including better image support and larger font sizes without needing to turn the "page" as often.

The iPhone has somewhat better portability and a color screen, which is a big plus for some books.

I think overall the decision is based on personal preferences and normal use. Someone who is already using their iPhone a lot might feel more comfortable using it over the Kindle.

Be well,
