Evolution in books
Books as we know them are undergoing an evolutional change process. The way we read books are changing with the new technologies made available to us.
Now with the similars of iPad, and other tablet devices book reading is taking a new form. When going to holidays, the trouble of deciding which books to take with us due to their weight will be long gone. Your iPad can carry thousands of virtual books!
With this new technology not only the speed of distributing books will change, it will also eliminate the high costs; since it will eliminate the raw material, distribution and overhead costs associated with the old technology. Maybe most importantly we do not need to sacrifice the beautiful trees and nature for our reading habit. What is more, all the books in booksvirtual.com are free.
New opportunities in book publishing
At booksvirtual.com we also expect to change the way the books are printed and distributed. Although with the invention of Johann Gutenberg the printing became available to masses, it did not pass through certain obstacles: If you are an unknown author and want to publish your book, you need to find an agent and a publisher first. You need to send your work to them and expect them to spare time to your work among other important authors! Then you need to conform to their tastes and expectations of what is supposed to be a good book, which will be a commercial success! Hurdles of publishing ones book are plenty. A large number of well known authors in their early beginnings had to try many publishers before getting recognition. It was more often their perseverance rather than their talent that insured them being recognized and published.
Due to this hurdles, our belief is that, the best books are kept in the private drawers of the authors who excelled in writing talent but lacked the perseverance of their contemporaries. With booksvirtual.com we are hoping to change all this. Now you can sign a free membership to our website and publish your books with us. Let your friends and families know this. Then watch it carefully how many times your book is downloaded and the comments you are receiving from different users. May be the success is just around the corner. Let the whole world see your eBook and let them decide how good it is. It is so simple. You can download any book from our web site. They are all free.
The books that can be read in all corners of the world
You can download the eBooks on your pc. However we do not expect you to read your eBooks stuck in front of a pc or laptop. For that reason we developed other applications on iPod/iPhone and iPad applications. So that you can read your eBooks at the beach, on your holidays and while you are travelling on the bus or train between home and work. To do that you need to go to apple store and download our application. Once you have our application you can read the eBooks or virtual books just like reading a normal book by flipping the pages. If your hands are busy; say you are cooking or riding your fitness bike you can adjust the settings to auto scroll at a speed suitable to your reading and keep on reading your book this way. You can adjust the light based on the lighting environment and choose the white or yellowish book color background, sepia.
