What is an e-book?
E-book. An e-book is a book in digital form. It can be downloaded to all digital devices such as smartphone, computer, iPad and other devices. You open it yourself in your e-book reader where you can make the settings yourself to get the best conditions for reading. This means that you who read the book can decide the size and font of the text.
The book is in epub format, which means that the text can “float around” when you change the size or font, it simply moves on it to adapt to text size and screen size. All books are converted that way because it provides the best reading experience possible. Because it is digital, the e-book is available for a long time. It is also future-proof because it is coded. It is also easy to change or renew it if there are new formats.
Availability is another benefit. You can get the book whenever you want! The file is downloaded directly in connection with the purchase and you can start reading your e-book at once. The digital format is also good because you can enlarge the text if you have difficulty reading small text. You can search, select and bookmark the text, which is useful if you are reading a fact book, for example. Nowadays, it is easy to take thousands of books with you wherever you are for an e-book that takes up minimal space in your bag, so instead of having ten heavy books on holiday, you can have thousands in a smartphone or in a tablet.
Reading is also about how we use the reading experience. On the go, the tablet is easier to pack than a stack of books. If you are out in nature, an audiobook is a great company. A rainy evening in front of the fireplace in the cozy armchair still feels like an e-book on a tablet best.
