As an avid reader and author, I have a great appreciation for the printed word. I love books – especially hard-bound printed books. But there are some distinct benefits to eBooks. And since we’re offering so many of them these days – both free and paid – I thought it would be good to share some of the advantages eBooks have over printed books.

(1) They’re quicker to obtain. If you want specific information and it’s available in a book, you can purchase an eBook and download it immediately. Instead of waiting for a printed book to be delivered, you can assess this information now.

(2) eBooks take up less space. Instead of a bulky library, you can fit literally thousands of books on your computer. It also makes it easier to share this information with family and friends.

(3) eBooks don’t use up trees. Except when you print one out – something I usually do for booklets and special reports – eBooks use very few natural resources. We save trees and help reduce pollution from pulp mills.

(4) They’re more portable. You can have quick and easy access to hundreds of books on your desktop computer, notebook or eBook reader. They’re much easier to take with you than traditional hard copy books.
