I believe most of us are familiar with ebooks, it became a alternative choice to paper books nowadays. So, what is an ebook?
An ebook is an electronic book, one you read digitally on devices called ebook readers. However, almost any electronic device that features a controllable viewing screen, including computers, tablets, many mobile phones, and all smartphones can also be used to read ebooks.
So, why would you want an ebook? As you discover this new industry with your surfing over the Internet, you will discover ePublishers and ebook stores gradually growing in numbers. Also thousands upon thousands of authors write books yearly. Of those, only a small percentage has the good fortune of being accepted by a publisher. This is not because they don’t make the grade, but because of the vast numbers. So, many talented authors chose to take their books to open internet, market and sell books themselves. Some of the books have printed equivalent, but some of them not, of those, there are sure many outstanding books are well worth the read.
People hold different opinions about ebooks, some think ebooks are good because they save paper; eReaders are light weight and they are capable of containing multiple books, or simply, they are cheaper than paper books. But the others prefer paper books because they more feel like book in hands while reading. I personally love both as long as the content can be correctly delivered to me, to me what more important is the content.
Sometimes I get very frustrated when reading a long essay in PDF format, it is a good idea to convert it to an ebook and I could read it on my iPad. I found Jutoh(Download) is a good software that helps me do the job easily; it is not completely free that you have to pay for some of the advanced functions, but the free demo version works well enough for me.
Jutoh could divide your work into chapters, and you could also create content for your work. Jutoh supports exporting in many popular formats such as Epub, Mobipocket, HTML, etc. And it is available for all of the computer operation systems.
Ebooks definitely made reading easier and more portable, but keep in mind that long time reading on devices like iPad is harmful for eyes, so having some proper rests during reading is always a good habit.
