Advantages of an eBook

  • It's easy to look up definitions - you don't have to track down a dictionary!


  • You can search for specific words or phrases - making it easy to locate information without re-reading or skimming the entire book.


  • The computer will read the book out loud to you - allowing you to do something else (like take better notes!).


  • You can zoom to a larger font or change text font for easier reading.


  • Set the text to scroll at different speeds so you don't have to constantly click the scroll arrow.


  • You don't need a light to read them - just turn your computer/tablet/phone on!


  • They are GREAT for the environment - they save trees and paper and avoid pollution!
