Demand for eBooks is growing immensely. It is not very surprising with the number of tech-savvy people around us. Shakespeare would have invented a word if he knew reading could get digitalised! Even publishing industries have started extending their market to eBooks. Digital publishing produces adjustable reading sense to improve your reading experience.
When you compare the two forms, printed books get preferred over the other. Readers stick to the published papers to “feel them in their hands”, and according to them, books smell appealing. Printed books are great for those who still treasure the old reading habit, but eBooks are much more advanced and hold many advantages than a printed one. Read ahead to find out.
eBooks are sharable. Like on a social media platform, these contents can be shared to a friend, liked and even saved to favourites. The printed books can only get passed to one person at a time, but eBooks get shared with many. Schools and colleges find it very easy to collect books on such a shared platform.
eBooks are downloadable. They can be read and stored for later use. Some devices have the feature of reading offline. One can easily carry around an eBook wherever they want. Even if you get stuck in a network less area, eBooks can rescue you from boredom.
No Delivery Time
The best benefit of an eBook is quick access and delivery. A printed book will take days to get delivered. The time lost for getting a text from a bookstore is also inconvenient. eBooks can make available a new release much before a physical book. You do not have to wait for days to get that brand new release like a physical book. The downable option makes it easy for readers to save and share the book with friends and colleagues.
The different editions of a physical printed book take months long. Some book owners cannot always afford to buy the next edition as the writer updates the information. eBooks are cloud-based content, and they get upgraded on time. Hence eBooks save money on reprinting.
Augmented Reality feature is beneficial for educational institutions. It makes reading a whole new experience. The texts and images have embedded augmented reality, and all you have to do is touch the image to pop-up a 3-dimensional visual.
Read Aloud Feature
If you are feeling lazy or don’t have time to finish that last chapter, click on your eBook’s ‘read-aloud’ feature. It has read-aloud and text to speech features. Readers can use them when they are engaged in other activities like driving or cooking.
Many Books, One Device
eBooks have access to many books in just one tiny device. It saves a lot of money. Students can opt eBooks instead of carrying multiple books.
