What is the AZW File Format?
Our AZW conversion services enable you to provide your eBooks to people who read books on a Kindle. AZW is a file format that was created by Amazon. It is the format of the eBooks that are sold on the Amazon Marketplace.
Why AZW Conversion Services are Important
You probably want your eBooks to have the greatest exposure in order to maximize your reading audience and your eBook sales. If so,then you will have to create your books in multiple formats. This is because two of the most popular online eBooks sellers – Amazon and Apple – use different formats. Amazon uses the AZW format,while Apple uses the ePub format.
Most eReaders other than the Kindle support a wide variety of formats,including the most common format of ePub. The Kindle,however,does not read the ePub format or many other eBook formats. In other words,if someone downloads a book from the Apple iBookstore,they will not be able to read it on a Kindle. AZW conversion services are important because they can convert your book into the AZW file format so can be made available on Amazon.
Most readers of eBooks do not know or care about the file format of the book they are reading. With Kindle books,they are downloaded over a system called Whispernet. This is a wireless system that delivers eBooks from Amazon in the AZW format to a user’s Kindle device. The owner of the eReader does not see the file format. They just download the eBook and read it.
As a publisher or author,however,it is important to know that different readers support different file formats. The good news,though,is that you do not have to worry about which reading devices support which formats.
How AZW Conversion Services Can Help You
We provide expert AZW Conversion Services for content creators and distributors. In many cases,eBook are created by taking a source file format and creating an eBook in the most commonly used ePub format. After that,the book is converted to the AZW format. In fact,many eBooks on Amazon were first created as ePub before they were converted to AZW.
Is AZW the Same as MOBI?
Why You Need ePub and AZW Conversion Services
Although Amazon Kindle devices do not read most other eBook formats,the wide majority of other readers read AZW files. So,you might be wondering,“Why not just create an AZW file?” While this would save some money,we believe the incremental savings are not worth it. This is because ePub is the most commonly used file format and is required by many eBook stores,including Apple. If you publish only in AZW,you will be limited to selling on Amazon. If you want to reach a much broader audience,you will want to use both ePub and AZW conversion services to make your eBook available on many different eBook internet stores,including the Apple store.
