Project: Making an ebook

Philippines
June 4, 2012 11:16am CST
I really don't know how to make an ebook. I haven't tried reading an ebook so I downloaded a free ebook emailed to me by a certain website when I signed up. I realized it's just a document in PDF format. So I decided to make an ebook using an old pocket book about Personality Development published by a local publisher. I haven't finished my "project" but I am excited as to how it will turn out. I don't have plans of making money from it though. I just want to try how it's done and maybe in the future, if I get my own tablet, I'll be able to compile my ebooks there. =)

I'll look into that shivanisd. =) I think I made a mistake on some lines of this discussion. I didn't write the book. I'm just trying to convert a book to an ebook. It's written by a local writer. I didn't write the book myself. How I wish I'll have my very own book published one day. It's going to be a dream come true. =)

Not even a friend but I do like the book I am converting to ebook. I just thought I could compile it sone day I can keep a copy when I get my own tablet. =) Converting it allows me to read the book slowly, rather than conventional reading. =)

There's a mistake. I missed on indicating that I am just converting a paperback to an ebook, a book written by a local author, not by me. Though I do hope I'll be a good writer some day. =)

Hello chan2zexy Did you ever find out how to convert your friend's writings into ebook form? I have converted some of my writings to ebook form. I use a Kindle Touch and I simply went online to the Amazon Kindle sight and did a search on how to do this. I can't remember the details, but it ended up with two of my books transferred from my computer and on to my Kindle Touch. I hope that all is well with you. Peace.
