What is it?
Ebook is short for electronic book, a book that can be read digitally on a computer, laptop or handheld device. Most ebooks come in PDF format, so as long as you have a computer and adobe reader you can get one and experience this exciting new piece of technology.
What can an it offer me what a book cannot?
One of the main things why some people would prefer this to an ordinary book is space. If you enjoy to read, I bet your house is strewn full of books everywhere. Big books, thin books, new books, old books.
A small bookshelf filled with books can look nice but the collection of books that most big readers have, usually take up a lot more space than that. A lot of books can make your house look very untidy, with an ebook you can hold thousands of pieces of literature all in one small space. This is also handy if you are a person who needs to transport books around with you, for example, a university student. Another thing to remember is that ebooks are vastly available and you can download them straight away. This is something that maybe you can’t do with a rare paperback or out of stock best seller that needs to be ordered in until you can have it.
The lighting on the screen can be adjusted and the font size of the text can be increased, this can be very useful for the visually impaired. Many ebooks have little extras such as dictionaries and searchable pieces of text. Last but not least you are helping the environment. A lot of trees are going to be saved out there due to the decrease in demand for paper, who knows one day books may not even exist anymore. The advantages for these new snazzy devices are infinite.
