When your grandchildren are fifty, will they be reading paper books or e-books?

The reading public has embraced e-books. They love the convenience of having hundreds of e-books at their fingertips on their device of choice, including tablets, smartphones, and dedicated reading devices like Kindles and Nooks. Paper books will always have their place, but e-books are the future.


An electronic book (or e-book) is a book made available in digital form.

E-books are easy to share and update, and they are more flexible than paper books. Readers can adjust the font size to make reading easier on the eyes. Links in the text help the user navigate to sections of interest, and text search commands make it easy to find specific names, words, or phrases.

E-books never go out of print because they aren't printed at all. Share your book with family or other interested researchers, donate your book to archival organizations, or sell it on Amazon—your choice.
