BellaOnline Press Release


Ebooks Become Popular Web Alternative

September 15, 2004 - has always been known for its quality online content. But as hard as it is for techno-savvy people to accept, sometimes you just can't be at your computer. Perhaps this is the reason behind the phenomenal success of BellaOnline's new ebook library.

Sales have skyrocketed since BellaOnline's ebook launch in June. There are already almost 60 ebooks being offered in the BellaOnline ebook library. Each ebook is written by one of BellaOnline's editors. The ebooks cover a diverse range of topics, from beginning a low carb diet to creating romantic updos to nose piercings for body art enthusiasts.

The ebook sales history shows that there is no "average" web user. Ebooks for Conquering Codependency sell as rapidly as do books on Mounting Tatting - a delicate form of crochet.

Why would someone pay for an ebook, when the web is available for free? Lisa Shea, the low carb editor for, explains it like this. "I do offer thousands of pages on low carb dieting on my site, for free. But many of my readers also want to have information readily available on their PDA, when they're at a restaurant or supermarket," she explains. "For the small cost of the ebook, they get an easy to use electronic format of my information, that can be read off-line, printed, or carried around with them. It's still far cheaper than buying a paper book, and it's far lighter to carry, too!"

The current top 10 sellers from the BellaOnline ebook library are:

#1: Updos For Every Occasion
#2: Low Carb Charts
#3: Mounting Tatting
#4: Copyright For Jewelry Designers
