An e-book is a document that is displayed in a format that enables it to be read on a portable device or machine. Many titles available in printed versions, including best-selling novels, classics, and reference texts, can be read as e-books.
E-books are made easier to read, and e-readers can store thousands of e-books on a single computer with font versatility.
Let’s now see some e-book advantages.
One of the main advantages is you can store many books in one device. EBooks are lightweight and compact, making them easy to bring around. One eBook reader will accommodate thousands of eBooks instead of bringing numerous bulky books. A lot of room is saved—in your home and your bag. One doesn’t have to think about the storage cap.
With text to speech or read-aloud functionality, eBooks have been designed. This helps individuals to listen to the eBooks if, for example, they are too busy to read it while driving or doing any chores. For children and adults with a learning disability or a visual impairment, this function is often beneficial. It is also helpful to allow the consumer to understand how to pronounce a specific phrase.
Eco-friendly eBooks completely removes the method of paper printing, saving publishers the expense of printing. Approximately 2.2 million books, using about 3 million trees, are published each year. If these printed paper books were to be replaced with a digital eBook, all those trees could be saved from being cut down. It also contributes to the carbon footprint by transporting the raw materials, the manufacturing process in the factory, and the final shipping, in addition to cutting trees.
When it comes to user interaction, eBooks still have an upper hand. Not only for the publisher but also the consumer, eBooks are also cost-effective. Print books have a conventional appeal, but eBooks are something that will fully change the experience of reading and learning shortly.
