Print and eReader Books

Some of our most popular titles are not available in eReader format. This is because not all eReaders support color (such as the Kindle Paperwhite). Also, to provide the best quality, the file size for photography books is far too large for distribution.

All current nonfiction Sastrugi Press books are available in eReader format. This means you can enjoy the exploits of these writers as your leisure. As the world of publishing changes, some question the value of printed books.

Fiction is the killer app for eReaders. In the last few years, digital fiction sales have overtaken print. Does that mean fiction print books are dead? Far from. Book store owners repeatedly tell us their customers continue to demand print books. Paper remains a popular and enjoyable reading media.
