In addition to the general philatelic works listed in Kindle Part 1 of this post, a number of Kindle books can be found on specific philatelic subjects. This number will surely increase as philatelic publishers recognize the benefit of generating digital versions in addition to paper. A prime example is the Chess Stamp Review.
Chess Stamps took advantage of this new media and distribution channel in 2011, before other organizations it appears. The benefit of publishing digitally and distributing through Amazon is that millions of customers can see and buy the latest annual compilation of the Chess Stamp Review – for instant gratification.
Kudos to these forward looking publishers. I’m sure there are other philatelic publications on Amazon, but they may need to modify their metadata so we can find them easily. In part 3 we’ll look at free philatelic books I’ve found on Amazon – yes, that’s right, Amazon does have free books.
