Ebooks

What is an ebook? Sometimes presented as e-Book or eBook, the term refers to a book that is available in an electronic format. It cannot be held in the hand like a real book. It can only be read on the computer or any palm device. Most ebooks are in PDF format while others are in txt, doc or exe formats. An ebook in PDF format can only be read with a free computer software called Adobe Reader.

Ebooks may include text, sound, photographs, illustrations and video. A good ebook uses the technology effectively, with tables of contents that link to the correct chapters and search capabilities. Links to websites and other files can also be included.

Selling ebooks is one of the fastest growing businesses on the internet. Selling information through ebooks is big business on eBay. At any one time, tens of thousands of ebooks are being sold. The big lure is: ebooks are cheaper than physical books and a buyer does not have to wait for the ebooks to be delivered to him by the postman. Most ebooks get delivered electronically via emails almost instantly once payments are made. Ebooks are delivered this way in zipped or compressed format. Upon receipt, they need to be unzipped by a computer program like 7zip.

Browsing through scores of ebooks are now possible in the comfort of one’s home. Buyers can take their time to choose and compare prices and they now have access to books that were once impossible due to the constraints of a physical bookstore.
