Concordia Publishing House E-Book and Digital Book Update
I thought I’d give you an update on some new items available as e-books and discuss CPH’s position on e-books. As we all know, E-Book use and sales are rising rapidly, every year. From one year to the next, more people are buying and using e-book readers. At the present time, it is our position that the Amazon Kindle family of readers and applications across a wide range of devices remains the best option for the majority of our customers. And that is why we continue to focus on the Kindle platform. We are however continuing to make our e-books available as e-Pub files for folks who prefer to use that format. We are also exploring moving into the Nook format as well. More on that later.
What’s new in E-books from Concordia Publishing House?
Well, first of all, by way of reminder, we have a new arrangement with LOGOS software, which is the world’s largest, and in my opinion, the best dedicated proprietary software platform for using a huge range of books and resources, all indexed and cross-linked to one another via the Libronix search technology. Simply put, we no longer sell any LOGOS formatted resource directly on a CD-ROM, but now all our resources are available, via instant purchase and download, from LOGOS.COM. Here is our Concordia page on their site. The most recent volume to go live in this new arrangement is Concordia: The Lutheran Confessions. In the next several months you will be seeing more resources go live on the LOGOS site, including the more recent volumes of Luther, Gerhard and the Concordia Commentary series. So, please bookmark our LOGOS page and stay tuned.
By way of new e-books available on Amazon, there are several I’d like to draw to your attention:
And these are just some of the over 280 titles we have in Kindle format. You can see the complete list by clicking on this link.
