Ebooks vs. Tree-Books


Print media is steadily giving way to digital media.  Print newspapers and magazines have especially felt the brunt of the shift.  Ebooks are also fast replacing print copies.  From nothing in 2007 to 20% of all books sold in 2011, projected to reach 50% in a few years, the benefits of ebooks are apparent.

Ebooks are green, saving trees along with the costs and energy it takes to produce, store, and distribute print books.   Self-published ebooks foster individual entrepreneurship.  Ebooks reduce the cost of books by two-thirds or more in many cases, thereby increasing readership.  Ebooks  ease back pain and related medical expenses since several thousand books can be stored on a lightweight reader.  Ebooks can be interactive, combining text, audio, and video.

Read an ebook, save a tree.

I definitely love eBooks, because I want to take care of the environment.
It's great that we can find sites like All you can books where there are lots of free eBooks, which we can have them with just one click.
Read an eBook, save a tree, as you said... a really great slogan!

The emperor watched Neji and smiled bitterly. Sunny has weakened during the afternoon but still fragrant lotus flavor burst than any time in the day. Cup of tea becomes bland, tasteless.cheap prom dresses

I've been a convert to e-books since I got my first Kindle back in 2009.

The benefits are pretty much self evident I feel. I actually prefer e-books to printed books these days. Turning pages is almost medieval!
