The electronic book benefits may not have been clear at first, but they are beginning to catch the attention of book lovers.
Books in an Instant
What many people don’t realize is that buying books is not as efficient as it could be. You have to go to the store, browse around for a while, get lost at the coffee bar, and then finally pay at the counter. Sure, you could also order a book online, but you still have to wait at least two days for the book to arrive, unless you want to pay outrageous shipping costs. With ebooks, you can order a book and have it on your ebook reader in minutes. No kidding. For those who aren’t patient or who need to have a certain book for a project or some other important errand, ebooks are meeting that call for quickness. You can download ebooks without plugging into a computer in some cases too, so you can be wireless and free.
Lower Prices (for the Books, Anyway)
While you will need to pop a few hundred dollars for a high quality, handheld ebook reader, you will find that the books you are downloading are much less pricey. You can often pay about $2 or more less for the electronic version of books and you’re still not paying for gas or for shipping costs. If you’re an avid reader and downloader, you will find your ebook reader pays for itself pretty quickly.
Less Environmental Impact
A more important discussion that’s coming up in relation to ebooks is the environmental impact. When you’re not printing books, you aren’t using up valuable paper and tree resources. Over time, the use of ebooks could save many forests from being cut down and it could help to reduce the overall carbon emissions which are made when books are shipped via plane or truck.
Ebooks may have looked like they weren’t going to have a chance in the market, but when you look at all the benefits they have, maybe this fad is something you should invest in too. Hey, everyone is doing it.
