I don’t know about you, but I check the Kindle store every single day for the newest titles. What I have noticed is a surge in the number of independent books published with the Kindle platform. I am talking about the self-published ebooks that you could only find on ClickBank before the Kindle. As you know, ClickBank has simply some of the worst premium content available on the planet. More than 90% of titles available on Clickbank are pure garbage. Now the Kindle platform has enabled these publishers to bring their works to Amazon customers.
Does Amazon Kindle platform open the door to garbage books? Absolutely. There is no doubt in my mind that we will have more useless books available in the market. But are we worse of because of it? I don’t think so. The more options we readers have, the better we are off. And for every 90 trash books out there, there are 10 very valuable books that would have never made it to Amazon had it not been for the Kindle. Kindle is truly a platform for innovation (in publishing). Some use it to spread garbage, but if you search enough, you’ll find those rare gems that make it all worth it.
