What is Considered a Low Content Book?

what is considered a low content book

Welcome to my blog! I am more than happy to have you here.

If this is your first time here, I am Subha Malik and I am a low content publisher since 2017. And, for the last three years or so I have been making a consistent monthly income with my low and no content books.

So, what is considered a low content book?

Any book that has a little written text/content in it, but not as much as you would find in a typical book. The content could be a one-line writing prompt or a quote on a single page or a table to input some sort of data or a coloring page.

Most of the time, a low-content book has one of two pages being repeated again and again to make a whole book of 100 or more pages. For example, a gratitude journal has one or two pages that let the end-user write about things he/she is grateful for and the same page is repeated 50 or 100 times to make a 100-page gratitude journal.

Below is are the first page from a gratitude journal I have created;

As you can see, the first page is a bit different than the 2nd page. It contains a quote about gratitude and a short prompt with a day and date option. Next, the same format is repeated 7 times on both pages to make a daily and weekly gratitude journal.

And then, I have repeated these two pages 52 times to make a 104-page gratitude journal that is sufficient for a whole year.
