The cool thing about Kindle books is that an actual Kindle is not required to read them. All you need is a Kindle-enabled app which is available for a myriad of devices including the iPhone, iPad and a host of smartphones including Blackberry and Android. Once you have the app installed and enabled you can download and read any Kindle book.

Kindle books are found mostly on Amazon and available within 60 seconds of purchase. Welcome to the digital reading train, nice to have you on board. I decided to scour Amazon to see what cool Kindle books are available that would be of interest to new blog owners and below are my results. Hope you grab a title or two and come back here to Daily Blog Tips and let us know of your findings.

Without further introduction, below we highlight five Kindle books for new blog owners.

1. Crush It – we mention this one first because this is the handbook on passion by the one and only Gary Vaynerchuk. He discusses that with passion anything is possible and not only that but that when you mix a hobby and a passion together you’re chances of success go way higher. This is a great and enjoyable read that I recommend to any blog owner. Learn what passion is, how to use it to your advantage and why it’s an essential ingredient to your blogging success.

2. Problogger – written by Darren Rowse the same name behind the wildly popular Problogger.net site, this is his first (and official) book that covers everything on how to turn your ho hum blog into a multi-million dollar empire. This book covers all you would want to know about Darren Rowse himself and how he got his start in the world of blogging along with essential steps to blog dominance.

3. Blogging For Dummies – a comprehensive book that covers a variety of categories within the blogging industry including SEO, marketing, link building, traffic, building a readership, blog monetization and so much more. A bible if you will on all things blogging. Written by a veteran in the industry and as with all “Dummies” books has a series of cheat sheets you can tear out and keep at bay for quick reference. A must in your Kindle book arsenal.

4. WordPress Power Guide – a relatively new Kindle book that is a great book for those who opt to use WordPress for their blogging platform. WordPress is one of those types of software that is so intuitive, scalable and flexible that once you learn it you don’t want to try anything else. I am biased as I use it but I use it because it serves all my needs. This book covers basic and advance WordPress usage that will turn you into a WordPress blogging machine in no time.

5. Start Your Own Blogging Business – many experienced blog owners advise to treat your blog as a business right from the get go. Right from day one. If you do this, you will take it more seriously and invest your time, effort and maybe even a bit of money into your blogging journey. This book delves into the many different categories involved in turning your blog into a business including the different types of blogging – video, micro, mobile and more. A great primer to succeed today and for many years to come.

All the Kindle books above were found online via Amazon and remember that you don’t need a Kindle to read any of them, just a Kindle-enabled app.
