    Hi everyone,

    I wonder if you have some habitude to read your ebooks ?

    Specific format ? Non-PDF ? Or hosting on a website ? Share some interesting links, that could be helpful for those who are interested to write.

    Most ebooks that I read are in PDF format. This is the format that they are normally made available in from the publisher's site. Does PDF work for you VVhite_Angel or are you looking for something else?

    You know guys why they choose the PDF format?
    PDF means Portable Document Format. It is an open format which can be used in any operating system, can it be Windows, Linux or Mac. This prevent people who are using different OS in thinking of a way to convert the files. And due to its small file size, it can be transferred without hassle through the internet in a short period of time.

    VVhite_Angel, are you wanting to sell your ebook or give it away for free? I can suggest a few sites where you can upload your book to but it depends on what your plan is.

    And to answer your original question, I like to download the PDF. :)

    I thought for free, with 2-3 links at footer.
    The main reason : To be diffused (As a creative commons licence) to the most people for free. If i succeed to write quality ebook, this will be shared a lot.

    I prefer this, than to advertise to buy it.

    Most of the E-books format is in PDF only.Due to this the Quality is also good While reading an E-book.

    For me I like making my ebooks in pdf format and I like reading pdfs as well. I wouldn't go any other way. I make them in WordPad(.docx) and just convert them to pdfs after.
