It may seem obvious. A free ebook, instantly readable and downloadable. What's *not* to like? However, an analysis of over 5,000 responses from readers of Michigan open access books reveals some interesting patterns about who the primary beneficiaries of open-access scholarly ebooks are.
They come from all around the world, with a majority of individual readers from outside North America. Every day, hundreds of individual readers access University of Michigan Press open-access books and receive a gentle prompt - "please fill in a few details to tell us why you were interested in this book." The request quickly disappears, but many readers - grateful for a free ebook - are happy to respond.
No special apps needed! Project Gutenberg eBooks require no special apps to read, just the regular Web browsers or eBook readers that are included with computers and mobile devices. There have been reports of sites that charge fees for custom apps, or for the same eBooks that are freely available from Project Gutenberg. Some of the apps might have worthwhile features, but none are required to enjoy Project Gutenberg eBooks.
Ibram X. Kendi's concept of antiracism reenergizes and reshapes the conversation about racial justice in America - but even more fundamentally, points us toward liberating new ways of thinking about ourselves and each other. Instead of working with the policies and system we have in place, Kendi asks us to think about what an antiracist society might look like, and how we can play an active role in building it.
Great article! I am a newbie author and published my first non-fiction eBook through KDP Select on December 30th. I ran a 3-day free promotion which I advertised on Facebook, and had enough downloads to put me at the #1 spot in my category, which even if fleeting was exciting. However, this free promotion did next to nothing for sales. My book is about real estate so really only applicable in the U.S., but I would like to be able to sell it elsewhere, including my real estate website. When my KDP Select term is up on March 30, I do not plan to renew.
Excellent and informative article giving the pros and cons. It's not an easy decision. After a few years of indecision, I stayed with Kindle Select. I'm content and page reads do make a difference to my earnings. That is especially the case when running AMS ads.You mention "Do the bestsellers in your genre include a healthy selection of Kindle Unlimited titles?" as being an important factor. I agree and would add this: the A-Pub imprints are all in KU. I think that answers the question for me. The other important benefit of KU is an author can price books sensibly. There is no need to make them free or sell at 0.99. I find many readers in the platforms outside of Amazon are on the lookout for free or nearly free ebooks. I don't like giving my work away for nothing. 041b061a72
