Though there are many advantages of using the e books, there are also some disadvantages. These have to be kept in mind before a person starts writing a book in the electronic format. There are many writers who are very enthusiastic because they think that the books that are in the electronic format have a lot of chances to become successful. This is only partially true. Though the internet may have many people using it, there are millions of pages on the internet. This makes it very important because unless the writer also has a good marketing strategy, the person will not be able to market or sell the book properly.
The main problem that is associated with the e book that will prevent huge sales of the book. There is rarely a best seller on the internet in the form of e book. Even if you are able to sell many books, you will not be able to earn a lot of money, if you have authored the book. This is because of the fact that the electronic books are all priced very economically. If the price is high, then there is nearly no chance of the book being sold. This is another problem with the sales of these books.
The fact that you will not be able to lend the e book to any friend is another drawback. If a person has purchased a book that is made of paper, it can be sent in the post and then lent to another person. The electronic books are usually limited in download to one device only. These are the common problems and disadvantages that are associated with the electronic books that are purchased.
