All about eBooks. What is an eBook? - About whatIs.com

The eBook is an electronical copy of a printed manual that can be viewed on a PC or eBook scanner. An eBook scanner can be a piece of computer related softwares, such as Microsoft's free scanner program, or a book-sized computer used exclusively as a scanner, such as Nuvomedia's Rocket eBook.

People can buy an e-book on floppy disk or CD, but the most common way to get an e-book is to buy a downloaded e-book document (or other reader material) from a website (such as Barnes and Noble) that is accessed by the user's computer or reader.

In general, an eBook can be download in five-minute time. While it is not necessary to use a reading app or equipment to view an ebook (most of them can be viewed as PDF files), they are still quite common because they offer similar features to a printed version - users can mark pages, take annotations, emphasize paragraphs and store the text they have chosen.

As well as these well-known features, eBook browsers have built-in lexicons and customizable fonts and fonts. Usually an eBook scanner can weigh from about twenty-two to three or four pound and can hold four thousand to over half a million pages of text and images.

One of the most appreciated features is the backlit display (which allows you to read in the dark). While some eBooks can be purchased for free or at a discounted rate, the pricing of many eBooks - especially best sellers - is similar and sometimes higher than that of hardback eBooks. For example, most eBooks at Barnes and Noble are priced similar to their conventional printed counterparts.
