From Amazon to Barnes and Noble, the Internet has given us the tools to search for books, browse through catalogs, and download the books.
But now that the digital era is here, the search engine is also home to a wealth of content, which many consumers don’t want to waste their time and money on.
That’s where microsoft publishing house Christian Book Publishers comes in.
With the launch of its new e-book platform, Christian Book publishers is the first publisher in the industry to offer a dedicated platform for digital book search.
Its website offers search tools that allow consumers to search through thousands of titles and publishers for the best-sellers, best-seller lists, and other books for their favorite genres and genres.
“We’re creating a platform for people to search,” Christian Book Publisher’s CEO Paul F. Wiles told BI.
“They can go to the library and search for the books they want and they can also go to Amazon and go to Barnes & Noble, or the bookstore and search on the same shelf.
So you’re looking at all the different books that people might have at home, you’re searching through all of those libraries and buying from those stores, so it’s a really great opportunity for consumers to discover a great book.
The other part of it is that we’re also looking at the market and the people that are buying the books and making sure that we are providing them with the best content.”
Filed under: ebooks,books,bestsellers source Bloomberg article Book sales have slowed since 2012, according to the Authors Guild, which is a trade group for book publishers.
Book sales fell from $1.2 billion in 2012 to $938 million in 2016.
The group says this drop in sales was due in part to several factors, including a decline in new releases, a reduction in digital book purchases, and the advent of ebooks.
But the Authors Union’s Robert L. Biederman says the drop is more than the authors can control.
The industry is now a digital beast, he says, and authors are still struggling to find their footing.
“The big question is whether or not the ebook market is going to survive,” Biederm said.
“The authors have had to be very patient.
They’ve had to sit on their hands, waiting for it to come out.”
Biederman argues that the book market is currently experiencing the greatest decline in book sales since the late 1990s, with new releases accounting for the majority of sales.
Biden, who was first elected to the Senate in 2007, was in the minority in the Senate when he first proposed the book-buying tax.
He is now the most recent senator to propose a bill to increase the sales tax on ebook purchases.
The Authors Guild has called on lawmakers to consider a bill that would increase the book tax from 3% to 5% on ebooks purchased after April 1.
The authors argue that it would allow publishers to more efficiently distribute books in an effort to reach more consumers.
“I think the authors are right, there’s going to be a very hard time with the ebook,” Biden said in March.
“But the book industry is not going to do it.
And they should be able to figure it out.”
