Kindle, Kobo, Nook, Sony…How many E-readers do I need to buy?


I wondered about this for a long time, but when it came down to it, all I need is one e-reader. I have a kindle, which I purchased direct from Amazon last year. One of my worries was the cover art i.e. how would it look on the screen for each e-reader…This is my first book, so I only want to send my best work out to the world.

One day I queried the cover art with Amazon, as they state it has to meet a specific size. Well I had GREAT difficulty, as the cover art I created was INDEED acceptable i.e. it meets the resolution requirements etc. but it was not the size Amazon specified. I created my cover (back and front) using Windows Paint and a free program called Irfanview, which I downloaded.

When I queried it with both the Kindle and Createspace community, they stated not to worry about it. The measurement Amazon wanted was meant to fit the Kindle Fire screen, but nonetheless it will just be a little smaller with the measurements I had. Now this may bother some people, but not me. I did the best I could and that’s good enough for me.
I’m not gonna buy any more E-readers. I feel all I need is one, but do what you feel you should do.

Please leave a comment below. How many E-readers do you have?
