Selling an e-book and a piece of sight reading software.

I'm going to see if I can make money promoting it on adwords.

I'm in a 50/50 profit split with the author of the book and software.

looks like a potential profit maker - speeds reading courses can command a good premium-however you need to check the text - several typos / bad grammar that might put 'slow' readers off.

Could you please point them out? Most of it wasn't written by me.

Nice design, not sure on how the program works though.

Actually, I'm not sure about the design. I have perfect eyesite (as far as I am aware) but found my eyes were straining as I got towards the bottom of the page. You really need a bigger text size in my opinion. Is the site aimed at parents? Older people have worse eye site.

The tahoma font seems cramped. It's a microsoft font and therefore I'm not even sure if mac users will have it? Maybe specify alternatives ... verdana, arial etc.

You could also try increasing the line spacing... line-height:1.5em; or something. Along with a bigger font size, that should space it out nicely and have it looking much better.

I really think you should be using something other than paypal. I think you'll lose a lot of sales using paypal compared to 2checkout for example. 20 or whatever the setup fee is isn't a lot to lose, even if it doesn't work out.
