The internet has brought us many great things including streaming music, online shopping, electronic bill pay and many more beneficial applications. One thing that I feel is often overlooked but very valuable is e-books. Especially e-books in the non fiction/self improvement subject areas.
Just as there are many great musicians that will never get signed - there are thousands of great authors who will never get the big book deal. Thanks to the internet and e-books – we can tap into the minds of these great authors.
There can be numerous other reasons the e-book author does not get a big book deal but don’t let that stop you from missing out on some great information at a great price.
An e-book author is free to write what they truly want and will not be influenced by a publisher, publicist, or any one else. E-books usually contain much more than a printed book. They sometimes have printable worksheets, menus, lists, affirmations or any number of other beneficial items that relate to the particular topic of the e-book. Unlike mainstream authors, e-book authors are often times reachable and happy to answer questions you may have about their e-book.
An e-book is purchased directly from a website and then downloaded immediately to your computer. You can read it right there on your computer screen or print it out and take it with you. You can enlarge the font if you are having trouble seeing the print, you can transfer it to a memory stick or other media so that it is portable, or you can simply read it as you have time.
So, give the e-books a try. Find a subject you are interested in and then shop around. You will discover new authors, new skills, new behaviors and perhaps a whole new you.
