Today we’re plagued with technology, are we not? It doesn’t even take a particularly observant person to notice. You can’t turn on your television or read a magazine without being told how the iPad is going to revolutionise everything or how the Amazon Kindle is going to deeply enhance your reading experience. I understand that some people may think that the claims of these devices offering an improvement to our daily lives is a bunch of ruckus (or other, increasingly more vulgar words), but I’m here to explain why I think that eBooks are the future.
An eBook reader is a small, slab like device. It is likely no bigger than a slate in depth, and width and height are slightly bigger than a normal book, but not entirely massive. Of course, you may be wondering what benefit that would have to you. I’ll tell you – the benefit that eBook Readers, and by extension eBooks has is that they are easy to carry about.Think about it, are you a fast reader? Do you find yourself needing to bring multiple books to your sunny foreign holiday to ensure that you have something to read while you’re there, but worrying about how heavy they are and if you’ll go over the maximum baggage weight for the plane? Yeah, the eBook annihilates those problems. Every book that is added, and that can be a lot – as the internal storage space on a reader is generally big enough for hundreds of eBooks, doesn’t require any more space, or even take any more precious kilograms of weight from you and your baggage, that you could be using for better, more useful things.
You don’t have to buy a ‘straight’ eBook reader like the Amazon Kindle – you could buy an iPad or iPod Touch and use their downloadable eBook applications, which both have online stores and the ability to download new eBooks onto the device using a piece of software for your computer (for example, ‘calibri’).The use of such devices allows you to also listen to music, watch a movie or perhaps have a little bit of gaming to spruce up your holiday, if that’s what floats your boat. What’s better, these devices don’t even need to be needlessly expensive. Heck, you don’t always even need another device – many smartphones come with or offer apps on their respective app stores that allow you to read eBooks on your phone – which you’ll likely have with you anyway.
