In the last few years, the popularity of digital books and novels has continued to grow and based on the numbers, it looks like they will continue to do so.
Kindle and digital books have been a great alternate avenue for writers, especially indie writers who have not had luck in following traditional routes in being published. However, it’s a double-edged sword because while Amazon and other digital book retailers have offered an alternate path for publication, consumers who don’t own a Kindle or other digital reader may feel left out in the cold.
Amazon has taken care of all that. You don’t need a Kindle to read a Kindle book because you can download any of several free apps (applications) to read your Kindle book on the device of your choice. Kindle has reading apps for:
Amazon also provides apps for Androids, Blackberries, Windows Phone and other tablets. And even if you don’t have any of the devices mentioned above, you can still read a Kindle book in the cloud – from your web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, etc.)
In other words, Amazon has gone to great lengths to make reading a Kindle book as easy as possible for you.
So, if there is a book out there that you are really dying to read that is only available in digital format, don’t despair. Just go to Amazon and download the free app of your choice and enjoy your new book. You may find that you like the digital read so much that a Kindle reader might find its way onto your wish list.
