If you can design web sites, it would not be difficult to learn how to compile eBooks.

If you can use Windows Words for word processing, you can make use of the programme. What some of the ebook Compilers do is to compile all your files into a book. That can then be stored on a Floppy disk a CD, or in your computer's hard drive. So you don't need to be an eBook author in order to make use of these ebook compiling software.
