Convert DoD Guides into eBooks

An Open Letter to DOD,

Release your guides like the Defense Acquisition Guidebook and DOD IP Guide in ebook formats. Ebook sales now outpace hardback sales on Amazon. The times are changing and so should the release of DOD guide formats. Yes, I can download the information as a PDF, but that’s a pain because I have to plug my ebook into my computer and reformat data in ways I don’t know how to do. If DOD converted the guides into ebook formats friendly to at least Amazon’s Kindle, you’ll have covered most of the ebook market. It’s an easy way to spread information.

Why stop at DoD? Amazon and Apple should be able to do this for free for the gov… not a big lift of their part.

@Katherine. I wish I knew the POCs that would handle this. I will repost your comment on the DAU group b/c it maintains the DoD guides I referenced.
