Here are some real life success stories of starting a book business:
1. EOFire LLC ($1.8M/year)
John Lee Dumas (from Humacao) started EOFire LLC about 11 years ago.
Heyo! John Lee Dumas here, founder and host of the top business podcast Entrepreneurs On Fire. I launched Entrepreneurs On Fire back in September 2012 as the first daily podcast interviewing today’s most successful and inspiring entrepreneurs. To date, I’ve now interviewed over 3,000 entrepreneurs, including Gary Vaynerchuk, Seth Godin, Barbara Corcoran, and many more.
Fun fact: back in 2012 two of my most trusted mentors strongly advised me NOT to start a daily podcast. They thought it was a bad idea. Luckily, I didn’t listen.
2. Most Recommended Books ($12K/year)
Richard Reis (from San Francisco, CA) started Most Recommended Books almost 4 years ago.

Christina Corriveau (from Lake Bluff, IL, USA) started Lit League over 4 years ago.
My name is Christina, and I am one of three momtrepreneurs who founded Lit League. We create book-themed activity boxes for kids ages 3-12, and we have developed three book box lines: picture book, early chapter book, and chapter book.
We are delighted to now be approved materials providers for eleven different charter schools in two states and have subscribers receiving Lit League boxes across the nation.
