An electronic book (eBook or e-Book) is a text presented in digital format that can be viewed on a computer screen or electronic device.
There are various print book genres that are available as eBooks that can contain only text or include audio, video, or hyperlinks.
In marketing, this format is widely used to attract visitors and achieve conversions.
As mentioned above, the e-Book allows one to read electronic books on a digital device with a screen.
Now, this type of device has storage memory similar to that of personal computers, which gives them the ability to accommodate many books while occupying the same physical space as a single paper book.
The type of screen that ebooks use is flat, thin, and can even be more or less flexible depending on the device.
To see the characters in a similar way to a paper book, a technology called "electronic ink" is used, which has no light, does not flicker, or has reflections to notto tire the eyes and can be read in outdoor light. Additionally, if the user requires it, the typography’s size and the contrast of light can be adjusted.
The eBooks come in different formats such as: PDF, HTML , TXT, LRF, EPUB, MOBI, PRC, FB2, ,etc.
Accessing eBooks is very easy. They can be obtained from free sources such as Project Gutenberg, which offers more than 50,000 titles to choose from, and they can also be purchased in different stores for a lower cost than paper books.
