Making Sure Your Readers KNOW How To Access Your Kindle E-Book


Amazon has a new widget that presumably appears on every book’s Kindle page. I’ve been talking about Kindle as a one-stop publishing place for e-book a long time now, but Amazon just got around to putting the necessary information up front and smack where readers will get the message before they click to buy an e-book. It reads:

"Free Kindle Reading App"

That means anybody with a computer or a reader can read Kindle books—even if they don’t have a Kindle device with the FREE Kindle app for smartphones, tablets and computers.

To get the free app, enter your email address or mobile phone number in the window where it asks for your e-mail and click!

If this widget doesn’t appear on your Amazon buy page, why not e-mail to gently prod Amazon to get with it and add it to your page. (-:
