Electronic book, abbreviated as E-book, is a digital production of a book which can be read on PC and on some mobiles phones as well. With the change in technology, E-books have become very popular these days as these have many advantages over printed books. Printed books can go out of print but no such thing can happen in E-book.
A lot of time, when the demand of the printed books is more, it can go out of print but due to the use of technology, E-book can be easily downloaded whenever needed and thus, availability is never an issue with E-book. In addition to this, stocking the printed books need a lot of space at home or in office but e-book, though takes space but the space is not physical in nature as it can be stored in your PC and the only space, it takes is in terms of megabytes or gigabytes.
Thus, this is considered to be one of the major advantages of E-book. Many a times, people want to read books but they are not able to do so because of eye-related problems, in case of E-books, people can use Text-to-speech function in computers and can hear the contents of the E-books with the help of this software. So, people do not have to always make an effort of reading if they want to know the contents of E-books.
A back-up copy of e-book can also be created without adding to the cost of the person and the same is not the case when we need to make a copy of printed book. In addition, Resources like paper and ink are not used in the production of E-books and this helps in the conservation of these resources as well. Such are the advantages of E-books so how about creating a library of E-books!
