The Effect of Digital Delivery of Books for E-Book Readers

Books have been around for hundreds of years. But now, technology is rapidly changing how we get and read our books. Ever since the Internet became widely used, books have been made available in digital format.

This has made reading a lot more convenient, as you could instantly purchase and download a book, having it available on your computer right away. There was no need to wait for a book to be shipped to you or to go to several bookstores around town with the hope of finding the one you’re looking for. The process is similar to how we can now access other forms of entertainment. Music and movies can be instantly downloaded straight to a computer, without the need to have a physical support like a DVD or CD.

But when it comes to books, there was one limitation: you needed to be at a computer to read. The arrival of new technology has changed that. E-book readers, like the Kindle and Nook have made reading on the go a lot more convenient. They are small tablets that were built for the primary purpose of giving readers a more practical and versatile device on which they can access their favorite works of literature.

As the popularity of e-book readers soared, so has digital book downloading. The advantages of digital delivery are plentiful: digital books usually cost less than their paper counterparts, there is no need to wait for anything to arrive in the mail, e-book readers allow someone to carry thousands of books with them whenever they go, plus taking notes and highlighting passages in books is a lot easier. With digital downloads, many independent authors have made their work available online, bypassing the lengthy and complicated process of having to work with a publisher.
