While printed books, as an older and more traditional source of education and enjoyment, continue to outsell ebooks, there are tons of people who buy ebooks regularly.
In fact, ebooks generated $2.04 billion in 2018, a pretty impressive feat for a newer form of media.
Even the most devoted reader of printed books has to admit that there are some serious benefits to buying ebooks!
Not sure what those benefits are? Read on to find out more!
Ebooks Are Portable
If you’re an avid reader, you’re familiar with the plight of packing for vacation. It might only take a light carry-on to fit all of your clothes and toiletries, but how are you going to pack all of your books?
When you buy ebooks, you can bring along dozens of books everywhere you go, all loaded onto a single phone, e-reader, or tablet!
When You Buy Ebooks You Get Them Instantly
Whether you’re anticipating a new arrival or revisiting an old classic, nothing dampens your reading spirits like waiting for a book to arrive in the mail or at your local library.
When you buy an ebook, there’s no waiting period. Simply pay, download, and you’re ready to go!
Many Ebooks Are Free or Cheap
Perhaps one of the reasons that printed books generate more money than ebooks is that ebooks are often available at reduced prices. Sometimes, they’re even available for free!
When it comes to printed books, you’ll rarely get one for free regardless of how old the copyright is or how battered the copy is. In case you’re determined to find a book in print but don’t want to spend a ton of money doing it, look to the top online book stores. They’re often your best bet for rare or reduced-price physical copies.
The Format of an Ebook is Adjustable
Sometimes the font size of a printed book is too darn small. Even the strongest reading glasses won’t help you make out those words!
With ebooks, you don’t have to worry about small font sizes. You can easily adjust the font so that it’s larger and in many cases, you can even change the font to something that is easier for you to look at. No more searching for large print books!
You Can Easily Look Up Any Word in an Ebook
