Make Money Online Selling Books on Amazon Without Writing Anything Using Kdp

I heard KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing by Amazon) just two months back.
I decided to give it a try and publish five books all blank journals(“low” Or “no” content books) the first month I sold nothing. And I thought this not for me.

After one month I rechecked my account and bingo sold my two books with $2.00 per book sold lol.

And below result after publishing 32 books.
