We all know the feeling- you’re settled in with a good book, and you’re just getting into the flow, when all of a sudden an ad pops up and interrupts your reading. It’s annoying, to say the least.
So why does this happen?
Well, there are a couple of reasons. First of all, remember that when you’re reading a Kindle book, you’re not actually reading a physical book. You’re reading a digital file that’s been downloaded onto your device.
And like any other digital file, that file can be embedded with advertising. So that’s one reason why you might see ads while reading your Kindle book.
Another reason has to do with the way Amazon prices Kindle books. If you look at the price of a Kindle book, you’ll notice that it’s usually lower than the price of the physical book.
That’s because when you buy a physical book, you’re not just paying for the book itself. You’re also paying for the cost of printing, shipping, and distribution.
But with a Kindle book, Amazon doesn’t have to worry about any of those costs. They can sell the book for a lower price because they don’t have the same overhead.
So where does the advertising come in?
Well, Amazon makes up for the lower price of the Kindle book by embedding ads in the book. That way, they can still make a profit on each book while keeping the price low for the customer.
So there you have it. Those are a couple of reasons why you might see ads while reading your Kindle book.
Of course, if you find the ads to be intrusive or annoying, you can always pay a little extra to get the ad-free version of the book. Or you can simply avoid buying Kindle books that have ads.
But now you know why those ads are there in the first place.
