Review: Reading e-books on different devices tough - Chicago Daily Herald

Review: Reading e-books on different devices tough - Chicago Daily Herald | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
While Amazon hasn't, other companies have embraced a format called EPub. In theory, that means books bought for one non-Kindle device can be read on another. But trying to move my EPub books around gets frustrating.

Amazon launches Kindle textbook tool to compete with iBooks Author | Gigaom

Amazon launches Kindle textbook tool to compete with iBooks Author | Gigaom | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it

We often think of digital textbooks as being read on iPads, and Apple rolled out iBooks Author, which lets users create textbooks and other interactive ebooks, in 2012. But Amazon, not surprisingly, wants in on the self-published textbook action, and on Thursday launched Kindle Textbook Creator, a beta tool that lets users convert graphics-heavy PDFs into ebooks.

 

Authors can also add highlighting, flashcards and some other features to the books. Textbook Creator is available for free download on Mac or Windows here.
