Ebook Formats

Readers, I need your input. Archive of Our Own (AO3) has software that allows readers to download any story as an ebook in a variety of formats. We don't have that ability. So, I manually create ebooks for longer stories through Calibre, a program for creating ebooks and organizing them.It's an extra step to put a story into 5 formats: PDF, HTML, Kindle, Mobi, and EPUB. Do I need to make these different formats? If everyone is using Kindle and EPUB, is the rest of waste of time? For that matter is ANYONE using these ebooks? You can comment here, or write me at flamingoslim at verizon dot net. thanks in advance.

I like kindle. I like being able to bookmark sections so I can quickly remember  stories.

Thanks for letting me know. Are you referring to the mobi format or the azw3 format?

I only use a iPad.  I don't have a Kindle, etc.  Using the PDF feature helps me to put the books into either my Dropbox or my iBooks.  So, I'm voting for the PDF choice to continue to be offered.  Thanks!
