How Old Books Can Make Great Incomes For You!



Old books contain an absolute wealth of information that is just as
important today as it ever was, no matter how long ago the books were
written. For example there are now a great many sites on the internet
devoting themselves to scanning and digitising old books, in order to
make them available for you and me to download to modern computers.Just
do a search and you will come up with pages upon pages of sites giving
you lists of historic books to download either at a charge or for free
to use as you require. One of the major download sites is Project
Gutenberg, which has a massive database of free to use public domain
material for you to read online, or download to your own computers
entirely at your leisure. Obviously another site and the major player
in the game is Google, with their books site.But why
are these ancient books so important and in such great demand you might
well ask? Answer. The information you can glean from old books is quite
usually relevant to modern times, with maybe just a few minor
differences.For instance, if you take as an example a
previously printed book on keeping fit and read it through from start
to finish, you will soon realise that with the exception of modern gym
equipment for your use, very little else has changed about how to keep
fit in general, since the days of Eugen Sandow and his popular book
“Strength and How to Obtain it” In fact if we were to use this example
and enlarge upon it even further, it soon becomes obvious that there
are millions of books in circulation on the subject… and all making
money out of the keep fit market for their publishers no matter how
large or small.Now many of these modern books will be reprints
and exact copies or very similar to the original version. How can this
be so? The answer is that they are all now public domain material. In
other words the copyright on them has expired and is available for use
by you, me or anyone else in any way we so desire.So you will
see new works being sold all over the world, even though they may just
be new rehashes of old books, all making a fantastic income for the
individual or publisher that has put a little thought time and effort
into using an historic book to make money.Turning old books
into making money is easy as ABC. This process is so simple that it can
be carried out by anyone, without the use of any special equipment. You
can either rewrite or type your material and then take it to a local
print shop for copying and binding.Better still if you own a
computer (and if you are reading this I’ll assume you do) then you can
use your printer/ scanner- which are very cheap to obtain these days,
in order to scan the pages into a word file or notepad. Then edit as
you like, even change the title if you wish and add your name as the
author, so that possible competitors cannot see exactly where your
original work came from. Publish your new book as a printed item, or in
digital format for instant download as a PDF file, or burn your book
onto a CD.There are hundreds, if not thousands of different
subjects to choose your public domain material from in order to
research your own niche market. It is estimated that there are over 85
million ancient books in the Public Domain.You can get many
further examples for Niche product creation by doing a keyword research
on one of the many available Internet sites, some of the best ones such
as wordtracker being free for your use. You now have no reason for not
researching your own niche market, which you can then use to build a
product and let old printed books make money for you.
