Buying books is expensive; more so when the books are from popular authors. Now, you can save money spent in buying hardback or paperback books by checking out their e-book version.
E-books have made book reading cheaper because they cost far less and many are also available for free in internet sites. If you were to spend money buying them in a regular book store or even through an online store like Amazon, you would be spending a lot more annually on just book purchase. With e-books there is no problem of the e-book running out of stock. Downloading takes a couple of minutes and you can share the e-book with friends through electronic means. If an e-book that has to be purchased was available with a friend, you can have a copy sent to you by email for reading.
