Ebooks From TV is a site to gather together in one place links to books that were mentioned on national television program in the United States and that are available in ebook format. The inspiration for the site came from discussions of ebook buying patterns. It was noted that there is definitely a dynamic of hearing about a book on TV, checking if it is available in the Kindle store and either buying it right there or with 99.99% probability never thinking about the book again. Someone suggested “Why not create a website to track ebooks that appear on TV?” Why not indeed? This site is that.
The ground rule for a book getting a link is that 1) it was written by a person that appeared on an American talk show recently 2) it is available in ebook format from the major vendors and 3) it was released in ebook format in the last year. If there are national talk shows not being covered that you’d like added to the list, email that information to email@example.com. Enjoy!
