Carson City, NV (PRWEB) January 13, 2012
The popularity and longevity of eBooks has been questioned since their introduction but for the past few years sales of both digital downloads and reading devices has seen impressive growth that indicates they’re here to stay. Today, a leading online publisher, Free-eBooks.net, announced hitting the milestone of 1 million members to further solidify the affirmative side of this debate.
The number of eBooks sold continues to grow after surpassing traditional book sales throughout 2011. In addition to the online retail industry, dominated by Amazon, there is an exponentially growing demand worldwide for free reads.
The Free-eBooks.net subscriber base surpassed the notable, million mark, after five years of rapid growth, spurred on by the increasing familiarity and acceptance of ebooks. They are an online publisher distributing thousands of titles, with over 50 categories for both fiction and non-fiction authors.
The President of Paradise Publishers, Martin Wales offers, “This historical moment for us affirms that we're building destination sites and services that many people enjoy.” He’s bullish about the company’s future stating, “This means Free-eBooks.net attracts even more independent authors and rising-star writers who may have been hesitant to publish in an ebook format. Now, we proved there’s a massive opportunity for exposure and reaching a global audience.”
With technological innovation, there are numerous hardware choices beyond your desktop and laptop to read digital books and multi-media content. The proliferation of tablets, eReaders and smartphones contributes to Amazon.com selling more ebooks than actual books and to Free-eBooks.net’s community downloading an average of nearly 13,000 ebooks, every single day.
“I feel hitting a million members is a magical number and a cause for celebration,” exclaims Nicolas Gremion, the CEO of Paradise Publishers, producers of Free-eBooks.net. “It’s a marker for the beginning of further exponential growth.” Gremion adds, “It’s when advertisers, joint venture partners, and even our own investors, strengthen their confidence in us as a serious player.”
To further solidify eBook acceptance, both Google Books and Free-eBooks.net announced surpassing 2.5 million downloads this past June. This news bodes well for Paradise’s next major project at Foboko.com, where anyone can realize their desire to create and publish their book. The download pace and volume, along with a million members, supports the experienced management team’s forecast to hit a million Foboko members in a quarter of the time.
