Children’s ebooks is a market that has seen steady growth, especially if the book incorporates an educational component. If your book is in one of these genres, it will work in your favor to have an ebook version available.
Who is Buying Ebooks?
According to the Pew Research Study mentioned previously, while print books continue to be more popular than ebooks in America, there has been a steady increase in ebooks readership in the last few years. Across all ages, women are more inclined to read ebooks than men. Readers 18 to 29 years old significantly lead the way in reading ebooks. As a person’s level of education and income increases, so does their ebook consumption.
Books That Should Not Convert to Ebooks
There are a few exceptions of books that aren’t great as ebooks. Books that include interactive content should not be converted to an ebook. For example: coloring books, diaries, or books that incorporate crafting such as gluing, cutting, or folding the paper in the book. Workbooks where the reader is supposed to write down responses or solve equations in order to move on in the book are not great as ebooks either. Extremely technical content that requires a lot of references, like manuals, reference materials, or study guides, are also not good fits for ebooks. Some medical, scientific, language-learning and legal books aren’t ideal as ebooks either. Essentially, the more encyclopedic and technical the book is, the less well-suited it is as an ebook.
