Annabooks Announces New Online Store - April 2021

Annabooks is excited to announce a change in our book publishing direction. The traditional eBook model and format have not been the best fit for technical books that have charts, graphics, and tables. We have kept our eyes out for better eBook solutions. One technology that we have been watching is Flipbooks. Flipbooks technology was developed several years ago, so that magazine publishers could sell online magazines. Flipbooks technology provides a similar look and feel to physical magazines, and keeps the same clean layout as the printed magazine. For a time, all the services around Flipbooks technology were focused on magazines; but, over time, the technology has matured.

After evaluating the latest Flipbooks technology, we are excited to announce that we are launching the new Annabooks Online Store ( to sell eBooks in the Flipbooks format. Special eBook reader applications or single-use tablet hardware devices are not needed with our eBooks. The new Annabooks Online Store allows you to purchase books, add them to your library, and view them on PC and mobile devices that have a web browser.

The new store gives us some independence, helps propel us forward into the future, and opens the door for us to work with other authors to publish their technical and non-technical books. The store is starting small with eBooks only, but our printed editions will be added to the store over time. A lot has happened over the past year, but we are excited about the future of our publishing.
