What are Low Content Books?
To explain low content books, first it is much easier to explain…
What are No-Content Books?
An example of no-content book is a plain lined notebook that you may find on Amazon like the one below:
Now imagine you could create 50 pages of this lined interior, create your own simple cover for it, and then begin selling it on Amazon in front of 300 million shoppers just like the one above. This is entirely possible for you to do after reading this article.
The idea is to indicate with the cover that your notebook is meant to be used for something specific, such as calligraphy or be used as a daily journal. This is the simplest book you could publish on Amazon and potentially start earning from sales of your no-content book.
Ok, so what is a Low Content Book?
Now imagine your daily journal has prompts written in it, to make it easier for the reader to concentrate the topic of their journal entries. For example, a daily gratitude journal where each page is arranged for the reader to list things they are grateful for:
Other examples include:
Guided journals, prayer books, password log books, fitness trackers, puzzle books, blank recipe books and many other endless ideas. Later in the article, we will look at best selling low content books on Amazon as well as different niches.

How To Sell Low Content Books on Amazon
Once you have created your book, you will upload it to be sold on Amazon through KDP.
What is KDP? (Low Content Books & KDP)
Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) is a Print on Demand platform for book publishing owned by Amazon. With KDP you can publish your books directly on the Amazon.com marketplace…and it's 300+ million daily shoppers.
How Does KDP Work?
Step 1 – Upload cover and interior of your book
Step 2 – Create a listing
Step 3- Wait for Amazon to process your book
And then you're done and your book should be live in a few days. After a customer purchases your book, Amazon will handle all the printing and shipping. This leaves you with a royalty and the endorphin rush of making passive income from an online side-hustle. You can buy author copies for yourself at cheaper rates, that you can re-sell or give away as gifts if you like.
The 3 step process above is a simplified version of the process, so below you will find a tutorial walking you through the process…
