Guide to Benefits of eBooks and eBooks Readers

Are eBooks replacing printed books? If the growing popularity of eBooks is any indication, the answer, it seems, is yes. Today, most book lovers prefer books in the electronic format over the printed version.

What are E-books?

E-books are electronic books that can be sold or freely distributed through the Internet. They have a variety of information and uses while others are audiobooks. Most people love these things, as they take hardly any time at all to put together and can really help market yourself or your business. Take a look at some instances where E-books can really take your business to the next level.

First, an E-book can be on most any subject you can imagine– from dogs to kids, to even Internet marketing. Most of these are very easy to read and can be very short or long depending on how much work is put into them. Of course, the more work you put into them, the better they usually are. One big advantage to an E-book is you can cater them to do whatever you like. Many businesses and individuals are using them to promote their business or whatever they are selling. This is made easier as these books can be coded with your own website links or your own products if that is what you desire.

No longer are you at the mercy of anyone else. If you can type, then you can be a published author if you want. The E-book craze just keeps rolling on and it looks like that won’t end anytime soon either. Most people give away E-books as a way to get more people to look at their products and it works extremely well for the most part. Others package them with reports or something else so they can give more value for the buck. No matter which option you choose, the E-book is a very powerful tool that can change your business virtually overnight if you market it right. Sales from one book can equal thousands of dollars if you hire affiliates and others to promote your product. Just don’t write it and sit on it. Get it out there and see how it does for you. You may be surprised at the success you have with it and all the people that actually read it.

One of the biggest mistakes many people make with using E-books is putting together one so fast it just isn’t worth publishing. Many mistakes can be made if you don’t do your homework, especially on the subject. This is something to always remember. You can’t fake what you don’t know, so always consider that when making an E-book. Do it on a subject that you love and know a lot about. Don’t do it on things you have very little knowledge on because it will show through very quickly. E-books can be your best friends if you use them properly or your worst nightmare if you don’t. All this give the review on e-books.

EBooks have numerous benefits over printed books

1. EBooks are cheaper

An eBook, in general, costs less than its printed version. A voracious reader can save a lot of money on his/her collection by choosing eBooks over printed books.

2. EBooks are delivered immediately

The ease of purchase and instant delivery are the two biggest advantages of using eBooks. You can purchase an eBook from anywhere where an Internet connection is available. An eBook takes, at most, a couple of minutes to download.

So, in effect, you can start reading an eBook within minutes of its purchase. In comparison, to purchase a printed book, you have to visit a nearby bookstore, which, needless to say, is time consuming.

Of course, you can buy a printed book online- but the delivery takes a minimum of two to three business days.

3. EBooks are easy to carry along

Imagine carrying the printed version of War and Peace, which goes up to 1,300 pages, with you. Now imagine carrying hundreds of printed books as bulky as War and Peace.

The point is that you can carry one or two printed books, but you certainly cannot take your whole collection with you wherever you go. On the other hand, you can carry hundreds of eBooks with you in an eBook reader, phone, or tablet, without having to lift more than a few hundred grams of weight.

4. EBooks are easy to store

EBooks are easy to store as they do not occupy any physical space. You can store hundreds, even thousands, of eBooks in your eBook reader or laptop. In comparison, you will need plenty of space to store so many printed books.

5. EBooks are easy to distribute

Ever worried about lending a book to someone who may not return it? With eBooks, lending is not an issue. You can easily distribute them to your friends via file sharing sites or email.

2. Power to change the font size of the text

Some printed books have such a small print or the words are packed so close together that one invariably suffers an eye strain by the time the book is finished. In case of a printed book, you cannot do much about the small print other than wishing the font should have been bigger.

However, eBook readers give you the power to change the font size of a text and the font style as well. Some eBook readers, such as the Kindle, also allow you to set the number of words in a line and the number of lines on a page.

3. Store your eBooks on different electronic devices

4. Read the first chapter of any book for free

You want to read a particular book that your friend has recommended, but the book is expensive and you are not sure if you would like it. What do you do in such a case? You can’t buy a printed book online and return it if you find it uninteresting. You can visit a book café and go through the book, but it will be time consuming. On the other hand, if you use an eBook reader, you can simply download the first chapter for free and read it without any hitch.

Many have no interest in digital books even after they acknowledge there many advantages, for many, the original book format holds a certain romance that is difficult to explain, hardcover books are going to be with us for some time yet, even in light of all the advantages that digital books offer.
