Ereader File Formats

by Carrie Bailey

Here's another useful tool to help writers, readers and bibliophiles in general better understand basic eReader technology. This slide presentation shows what file formats the most popular eReaders accept. A good strategy is to choose a few file formats used by most of the eReaders and invest the time and effort necessary to create each document separately, although, using the quick and dirty online converters may also be a convenient way to get started.

Notice that while Amazon.com certainly has a preference for ePub files, not all eReaders support this format. Another important thing to keep in mind is the document display. Smart phones accept PDF files, but they're often cumbersome to access and read. 

If you've had experience with document conversion, share your experience in the comment section below. If you haven't, you're welcome to ask any burning questions you may have and we'll try to find the answers.
