Advantages

  • Text can be searched automatically and cross-referenced using hyperlinks.
  • A single e-book reader containing several books is easier to carry around (less mass and volume) than the same books in printed form. Even hundreds or thousands of books may be stored on the same device.
  • E-books can allow non-permanent highlighting.
  • Font size and font face can be adjusted.
  • E-books may allow animated images or multimedia clips to be embedded.
  • E-books allow for greater fidelity in colour reproduction compared to CMYK colour printing (although some e-book readers have only monochrome displays).
  • E-book devices allow reading in low light or even total darkness by means of a back light.
  • An e-book can automatically open at the last read page.
  • While an e-book reader costs more than one book, the electronic texts are generally cheaper.
  • Text-to-speech software can be used to convert e-books to audio books automatically.
  • Also for the supplier e-books require little space, they can therefore be offered indefinitely, with no going out of print date, allowing authors to continue to earn royalties indefinitely.
  • It is easier for authors to self-publish e-books.
  • Ease of distributing e-texts means that they can be used to stimulate higher sales of printed copies of books.[4]
  • Although they require electricity to be read, the production of e-books does not consume the paper, ink, and other resources that are used to produce printed books.
