STEP 3. Choose a Web Address and Title for Your First Book

The “web address” of your book will look like: yourbookname.pressbooks.com. The default value for “yourbookname” is your username. If you intend to give others access to this book, be sure to choose your web address wisely: it cannot be changed. However, you can start as many books as you like with Pressbooks.

You must also enter the title of your book in this step. This can be changed any time in the future from within the Pressbooks admin.
