If you haven’t watched carefully, you might have missed on the electronic reader. The electronic reader is something much like an MP3 player. You can download any readable material into one portable library. It’s been all the rage since it came out. And if the buzz is any indication, this piece of technology is only going to get better and more in demand.
Back in time when books were still coming out they were done by way of the printing press. But as the technology evolved, so did the ability to put all the files for a book onto the computer. Then the books were fed through a printing press and put out. Now if you have ever seen a text file, you know that even the biggest of books is not more than a megabyte or two at the most. So publishers decided that people could get their reading material by allowing these files to be downloaded off the Internet. You didn’t have to entertainment book in order for that to be available to you. All you needed was a computer.
What is happening nowadays is that all books are being put online for people just like you to download for a little bit cheaper than you would find at a bookstore, but not quite as cheap as you might find at a thrift store. The problem that remains is with the thousands of books and magazines that come out each and every week it is really hard to get some of the older but classic books online. This means that if you were hoping to catch up on some of the great works of an author like Charles Dickens, you may have to wait longer than you would hope, but it will be there someday. The electronic book is here to stay.
