Do You Have a Book in the iBookstore?

I follow several authors with published books - are any of your books in the iBookstore? I want to find as many as possible, download the free sample, and then take a photo for everyone to see. And I think it would be really cool to start reading some of my friends' books. So let me know the title of your book and I will seek it out!

And for those of you who don't, how many want their book in the iBookstore one day?

That's an awesome idea, Alex. I've just started purchasing books of fellow bloggers too. I'm really looking forward to reading them. No, nothing's published of mine yet. I'm still dreaming ...

iBooks? I don't know yet cause I don't have any personal experience with it. But I guess it's the future and where all authors will one day have to go. I like your idea to help those like me learn more.

Great idea!

I'm not published in an iBookstore...yet. I hope to hold my book in traditional, paper pages format. But I think we all have to resign ourselves to the more eco-friendly and technological trend of e-books.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Allomorph, I thought it would be fun to download my fellow bloggers' books!

Yvonne, I don't know how...

Diane, I will find yours!

Dez, it's Apple's eBookstore for their iPad. Like iTunes.

Nicole, I hope that happens for you!

I don't have a book anywhere, but I would love to have one in the iBookstore someday.

Helen Ginger said...

I have three nonfiction books, but they're not in i-form. They would be great for that form, though, since they're aimed primarily at older teens who live in the virtual world.

Jemi Fraser said...

I'm with the others who hope to be in the istore one day! I've read a few books by my fellow bloggers, have a few more on my wishlist. I really need to win that lottery :)

Well, after seeing you all over the blogosphere I finally decided to follow you *waves sheepishly*.

In answer to your question, no books, i- or otherwise, yet, but hopefully one day soon.

Cheeseboy said...

iWhatnow? I really should start reading something other than blogs.

My book Breakthrough is self published. The re-release will be available in about a month in hard bound, softcover, and e-book. I'm thinking big thoughts for 2010.

My first book Women of the Bible: A Study is available on Kindle and at FilbertBooks.com. It is only available in ebook, but not yet on ibook. How do I get it there?

Glynis said...

Great idea Alex. I have started buying my blogger friends books.

I have a great pile of varied reading. It is fun to see who writes what and how. I have not been disappointed at all and have a fantastic library.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Stephen, is it in the iBookstore?

Dragonsmuse, I guess you need to ask your publisher.

India Drummond said...

I'm in the 'Someday Soon' category!

I tried to go to ibookstore.com, but it didn't make any sense.. thanks for clarifying!

Stephen Tremp said...

Not yet Alex, but it will be toward the end of June.
