We set out to provide people with educational content available on the iPhone operating system. As it turns out, our members now can use their Apple iPad too
Casper, WY (PRWEB) March 24, 2010
In the first quarter of this year, Apple announced the release of its highly anticipated computer tablet dubbed the "iPad." Apple has included an ebook capability as part of the feature list. This allows owners to read digital copies of books on their iPad. The January release came with much fanfare and, as is Apple's style, a cool demo by CEO Steve Jobs himself.
The company joins other players already offering ebook readers, like Amazon's Kindle, Barnes & Noble's Nook and the SONY Reader. There are many other players entering this space but leading brands definitely have a head start.
While most bestselling books retail around $9.99 per copy online, avid readers and savvy buyers now search for free and discount sources to serve their insatiable habit. One of the world's largest, online libraries of electronic books is Free-Ebooks.Net (http://www.Free-Ebooks.Net) from Paradise Publishers Inc. They have both fiction and non-fiction with unlimited access online. Any and all books can be viewed in any internet browser, free of charge.
Paradise Publishers President, Martin Wales, explains how they can provide books at no cost to its thousands of members, "Authors offer their books for free at Free-Ebooks.Net (http://www.Free-Ebooks.Net) to gain increased exposure and hopefully attract new fans for their next book or related products or services. For example, a Financial Advisor writes a book on saving for your first home to simultaneously increase her credibility while using it as a promotional tool to attract new clients. Meanwhile, premium services and site advertising pay our bills."
The popularity of digital versions of books, called "ebooks," took off in dramatic fashion during the past, 2009 holiday shopping season. Amazon reported actually selling more ebooks than real books at one point and now sells about 6 ebooks for every 10 print-based books on a regular basis.
Free-Ebooks.Net's (http://www.Free-Ebooks.Net) thousands of titles are conveniently available in multiple formats for greater access to people's favorite books, topics and authors. Along with the new ePub format for the Apple iPad, Free-Ebooks.Net also offers all other popular formats, including PDF, HTML, and MobiPocket (for Amazon's Kindle, Blackberry, Palm, and other "smart" mobile devices).
With ebook readers' popularity growing exponentially, the company recently introduced a V.I.P. Membership. You can download an unlimited number of books in ePub, Mobipocket, PDF, and HTML for a mere $7 per month or take advantage of annual and lifetime packages to save 60% or more.
"We set out to provide people with educational content available on the iPhone operating system. As it turns out, our members now can use their Apple iPad too," Paradise Publishers CEO Nicolas Gremion shares. "By providing books in ePub, we continue to give our community the widest available selection and easiest access."
Considering the average bestseller in ebook format for Amazon's Kindle costs $10, that's a huge bargain when compared to a nominal donation at http://www.Free-eBook.Net. That's less than the cost of coffee with a friend and you also support literacy around the world through Paradise Publishers' ongoing efforts.
