What are Ebooks? Ebooks are electronic copies of printed books that are read on some type of E-reader device such as the Amazon Kindle or the Barnes and Noble Nook, which contains free software that enables you to read your Ebooks. Amazon also has the Kindle for PC as a free download.
Ebooks provide convenience for people who like to read books. Ebooks are immediately accessible and can be downloaded to an E-reader or your PC. E-readers allow you to preview and buy new books from anyplace. All you need is wi-fi access. These mobile devices allow the Ebooks to be more portable than paperback or hardcover books. It is cumbersome to carry a bulky hardcover edition of a book or several paperback books on a train or an airplane. E-readers are small and portable and do not take up a lost of space.
Since most books contain only text, hundreds of Ebooks can be downloaded easily and are less expensive than printed books. Ebooks can also be annotated, bookmarked, and searched. If you want to go back to a certain passage or chapter in a book or use the electronic search, Ebooks allow you to do that.
Ebooks may be the wave of the future. It definitely is not a fad that will fade any time soon.
