I wish I could take credit for the knowledge and comments in the link to Bad Formatting = Bad E-Books, featured on BookBuzzer. This article is right on the mark. Our published books have too many bullets, charts, photos, and variations to be effective e-books in any form other than PDFs.

In formatting books for the future I’ll keep that in mind. However, I personally believe it would be nice to have a program or professional to format new editions. Just like editing, I think there will be a strong market for this skill.

I believe you will find this article worthwhile if you are considering e-books.

Bad Formatting = Bad E-Books

Please take the time to send me your comments on this post. I believe e-books need to be accepted for the value they are, and would be interested in reader’s comments.
