Amazon Kindle Gluten-Free Desserts Book

eBook-version of GF Dessert Recipes available...
Last week I finally completed the Amazon.com Kindle-reader version of our Gluten-Free & Wheat-Free Gourmet Desserts Recipe book and have it published on Amazon's Kindle eBook store.  Until now, we have had the full-color printed book for sale only on our own website (Gluten-Free-Desserts.com), but we decided to join the electronic-publishing crowd since devices like the iPad, Kindle Reader, and others have been gaining popularity and momentum.  We were receiving more and more inquiries about whether we offered a Kindle/eBook version, and now we can finally say "yes".

Kindle Books can be Viewed on (as of Jan-2011)...

Gluten-Free Recipes book for Kindle Reader Device/Software
So, if you are one of those people that have been waiting for the electronic version of our Gluten-Free Desserts book, thank you for the patience and we hope you enjoy the eBook.  I personally like having the printed book with me when baking my desserts, but there are times it would be nice to just carry all my favorite recipes with me along with my other business documents and various books; and, with the little Kindle reader device and our new E-book, I can do just that.

Even though (as of this writing) the Kindle Reader hardware devices are gray-scale display devices, we published the Kindle version of our book in the same full-color format with beautiful pictures of each and every finished gluten-free recipe... it is the same content as the physical printed edition, but available as an "E-Book".   I purchased the latest version of the Kindle for testing the book on, and the pictures look very good in the multi-toned high-resolution gray-scale native to the device.  Because we published in full-color, viewing the eBook with a color-capable book-reader/viewer (like Amazon Kindle for PC or Kindle for Mac or an iPad Kindle-capable reader) software will be visually just like leafing through our printed version.

The End of Printed Books nears...
As I have hinted on this blog before, we will only maintain physical-inventory (i.e., *printed* GF Desserts books) for perhaps two years longer now that we have the eBook on the market.   The end of print version is near.

I was wondering (this is partially through my lack of knowledge about Kindle E-books) if your E-book is easily accessible through an I-Phone or other smartphone devices?

T.R., I updated this posting to answer your question. Amazon has Kindle-book-reader software available for nearly all major platforms now. I put a list here (click on iPhone Kindle S/W for link to Amazon). Hope that helps. I have used the Kindle-PC and Kindle-Mac software, and books really looks fantastic via both the reader device and the software (the software-readers have the advantage of *color* on color displays).
