Online Book Stores – Are They Cheaper Than Local Book Shops?

Posted on October 12, 2017 in Traditional Bookstores

Online transaction is one of the most significant development of internet technology. This is one reason why many offline businesses are opening their online shops now. From a corner cheese cake shop to large Book stores, they are discovering this to be a great way to reach out to new buyers.

Consumer confidence to shop online is on the rise because there are several advantages over conventional methods of shopping.

1) While conventional shopping means commuting to a book shop to buy a book during business hours, availability of books online makes it easy to shop from a PC anytime without stepping out of the door.

2) It is cheaper to shop online because you don’t have to bear book printing and book distribution costs.

3) Online shopping is a big advantage for book publishers too, because they don’t have to bear massive overheads of advertising or high rents in city buildings any more.

4)Its good news for all of us because book publishers provide a safe and sound environment for us to shop online with their safe payment gateways using credit cards, Pay pal or bank transfers.

5) Though very few people would know about this secret, you don’t have to necessarily buy whole book if you just needed a chapter. Not only you can download a chapter, you can even remove irrelevant text to make the chapter precise and more meaningful. In other words, you can convert the chapter into editable format, then delete paragraphs or text you don’t need.

More often than not these books are in PDF or image format, a format that’s not easy to edit. However if you convert PDF into word or text format then it can be edited easily.

So how exactly can you convert PDF into word?

Firstly search on Google a site that converts PDF online, then upload your chapter or book and then convert to word. You can edit, cut or paste your text version as you want.

Please note, you may come across many sites that will offer to convert your PDF into Word. Select a good site only, then upload your chapter and download its editable version within minutes. You may find some sites are absolutely free while some may charge a fee.

Caution: As far as possible keep away from free sites. Though you may be tempted to select free sites just because they are free, it can be dangerous to go with free sites. That’s because free sites may often be riddled with malwares, viruses and phishing software which can creep into your PC and cause irrepairable damage.

Good news is that not all sites on internet are dangerous, there are many good sites too. Mostly paid sites, so make sure you select a paid site only. Paid sites may charge a small fee but they certainly are safe to give you that piece of mind you deserve.
