e-books: like it or not

August 3, 2011 5:26am CST
E-books: are electronic books. I like reading books but I have not tried using ebooks. What is it like? From the word itself, it is digital.. an electronic version of printed books. But I guess, it costs a lot. I was wondering what are the other features of e-books. And how much it would cost? Your help is greatly appreciated.

I have never bought an ebook. So I wouldn't be able to tell you how much an ebook will cost. But I have heard that they usually cost less than their printed counterparts. I have always read ebooks which were available for free. I am not that fond of reading on a computer, but sometimes you just have to do it. It is not very important whether you like ebooks or not, I would have to agree that they are very important. You can't buy a book every time you want to learn something. An ebook is great for consultation when you are trying to learn something on your own.

I love books and hate ebooks. I can't read on a screen and the last thing I'm going to do is feed one of those e-reader manufacturing monsters. I don't want any electronic devil that claims to be a book anywhere in my house. I have a pretty strong and negative opinion of eBooks. I will stick to paper books, thank you very much.

What type of e-books do you mean that costs a lot? when in fact most of e-books are FREE to download? . I do have a site for downloading e-books, just pm me here if you want. I don't have the time to read, mostly what I do enjoy are video instruction materials which is easier for me to grasp whenever I wanted to learn something.

Hi. I'm a bookworm myself. And I have e-books. Some of the e-books are free. I bought e-books from Facebook friends. They cost like $0.30 each. E-books with authors like Sidney Sheldon and Paulo Coelho. E-books like Gossip Girl. It might depend on the e-book. :)) I got my Twilight Series e-books for free. :D Advantage is that you can read using your phone if your phone has an Adobe Reader. But it's much more tiring to the eyes. Maybe you can try downloading free e-book to check if you're comfortable reading through gadgets. :) or message me and I'll send you one of my e-books here. Good luck!
