There are clear benefits and advantages of eBooks, easily accessible from your computer, tablet, or mobile device. After you purchase them, they are delivered to you almost instantaneously – you can purchase, download, and start reading them in minutes – without leaving your comfy chair! You don’t have to go to a bookstore to buy them, neither wait for them for days, weeks and sometimes more to arrive in the mail.
No trees are required to manufacture paper for the pages of eBooks. They are portable and you can carry a whole library of your favorite books with you, stored electronically in your own device. Once downloaded, you don’t need to be connected to the internet to read them – this is particularly great if you like to read while you commute; on the bus, train, airplane, or while standing in line. And if your device is connected to the internet, you can easily access lots of important and related information on websites by clicking on pre-selected links.
Another benefit, if you suffer from any visual impairment is that you can adjust the font size and even choose the background color to make your reading experience more enjoyable.
And one positive impact for customers and for us publishers as well, is that eBook versions are less expensive than printed versions, as there are less costs associated with publishing, warehousing, and distribution.
