Released e-book with ISBN version of "Who am I? I am I ..." iami1 blog book; Changed metadata of some ebook website entries to mention ISBN

Last updated on 18th July 2018

Released an e-book version with ISBN today (13th July 2018) which is available for download on at this link: I have also updated the blog's download page ( to have a link to this file (with ISBN).

As discussed earlier I have uploaded this with-ISBN e-book to ebook websites that I use for upload and that DO NOT automatically generate new formats. These websites are:

2) Project Gutenberg

Both the above websites have yet to process the upload and update their webpages corresponding to this e-book. I expect both to get updated on or before Monday, 16th July 2018.

It was also discussed earlier that ebook websites like that automatically generate different ebook formats should have (continue to have) a version of the ebook WITHOUT ISBN but should have ISBN number in the metadata. I changed the description in these ebook websites to mention the following or something on similar lines:

I (author & self-publisher Ravi S. Iyer) am using the ISBN number allotted by for this e-book - ISBN: 978-93-5311-652-1 - for PDF format only as my understanding of their guidelines is that each e-book format must have a separate ISBN. I applied for and got only one ISBN number for my e-book. As this website may be auto-generating other e-book formats like EPUB, MOBI and TXT, I felt it appropriate to upload an e-book version without ISBN number (in Verso page) which is the only difference between it and the e-book with ISBN number.

The e-book version with ISBN number (in Verso page) can be freely downloaded from:

--- end of description change---

The two such websites which I use and which have been updated in this manner are:


4) Open Library:


18th July 2018 Update has updated the e-book a few days ago. Here's the link:
