Thousands of free books available in PDF will be monetized thanks to the 'Ads for PDF' program created by Adobe in conjunction with Yahoo, allowing the publishers to further grow their free library.

Paradise Publishers Inc. announced they have accepted an invitation from Adobe and Yahoo to participate in their 'Ads for PDF' beta program, allowing Paradise Publishers to monetize the thousands of PDF ebooks the company provides free of charge through their marquee website

On average 8,143 electronic books (ebooks) are downloaded from per day by members seeking to read about various topics ranging from fiction to health to business to drama and more. Currently these ebooks are offered in various formats with the bulk of them being available in the PDF only format.

While advertising is present on the website itself, up until now the company did not have an an effective way to implement advertising to their vast collection of ebooks; which is where users spend the most time. While the 'Ads for PDF' program being developed by Adobe Systems Incorporated (NSADAQ: ADBE) in conjunction with Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ: YHOO) is still in beta, "it represents an important opportunity for Paradise Publishers to create a new revenue channel out of existing inventory" says company CEO, Nicolas Gremion.

The current program does have some setbacks, most notably that the ads are only served when users are viewing PDF's in Adobe Reader version 8.1 or higher usually pre-installed on later computer models. members are urged to upgrade to the Adobe 9 Reader free of charge directly on the website itself. Furthermore, "Adobe is encouraging us to provide feedback…" adds Mr Gremion, "...and as this program could have a profound affect on our bottom line over the long term, we will be there to provide plenty of it".
