What's the best way to distribute a book?

Episode 940 (1:17:02)

Chris from North Hollywood, CA

Chris has a family tree book in PDF format that she wants to distribute to the family. Leo says having a print on demand service handle the distribution would be the best option. Lulu started this idea, but Amazon's CreateSpace is the best option because it'll also handle eBook sales as well as hard backs. The beauty is, there's no waste and people with Kindle's can download it as well. It can also be available on iPads. Amazon will handle MOBI and ePub formats, so people can use either Apple's iBooks, or the Kindle Reader. Family members can also order hard backs if they'd like.
