More than three years ago, Amazon released a new eBook format: ebook.
The idea behind ebook was that it would replace print books as the main medium of communication.
The company had long been one of the largest publishers in the world and the idea of an e-book was new, but it seemed like a natural fit for a market that already relied on printed books.
“We’re not the first to do it, but we’re definitely the first company to do so,” says Dan Schatz, founder and president of the digital publisher Amazon.com.
“It was something we were talking about for a long time.”
In fact, Amazon’s Kindle e-readers first launched in December 2013.
Since then, the company has launched more than 30 different ebook formats, including the Kindle Reader, the Kindle Voyage, and the Kindle Paperwhite.
There are hundreds of different ebook ebook formats.
Many of them were created by different companies or publishers, but the best ones are all available on the Kindle eShop.
And as of this week, most of those are free.
Here are some of the best ebook formats to check out.
