Nowadays, one of the more popular e-book readers is Kindle, by Amazon. People who love to read different kinds of publications find it compact, light, and easy to use.

These e-books can then be promoted and sold through Amazon, and the writer can expect to earn and be paid twice every month, depending on the sales profits.
Without a doubt, e-books are fast becoming a trend among readers around the world. If you happen to be a writer, you can venture into the e-book publishing industry through Apple’s iPad.
