Benefits of eBooks
There are loads of advantages to using eBooks over hard copies. These include, but aren’t limited to:
- Round the clock access to the books you’re after. Library isn’t open? No big deal, just get online and there the book is!
- Many eBook vendors allow multiple users to access the same book at the same time. This means no placing holds, and no long waits!
- No fines, damage or replacement costs. Want to make notes in your eBook? You can bookmark and highlight without damaging the book! And you don’t need to worry about returning them on time!
- No more carrying around a stack of heavy texts books. eBooks can be read on eBook readers, computers, and even smartphones and tablets. That’s a big weight off your shoulders!
