7 Benefits Of eBooks

7 Reasons You Should Own An eBook Reader

Why the switch?
Plenty were skeptical in the beginning, saying people would never make the switch. But rising eBook sales over the years say otherwise. Because no matter how well-loved physical books are, there’s really something to be said for the greater convenience eBooks can provide.

Here are a few more reasons why many readers are now making the switch from paper to electronic:

1. eBooks don’t kill trees.
All the world over, the state of global warming is at a critical point. Scientists predict that if water levels continue to heat up, warmer waters would likely send fish and other animals in tropical waters to migrate to cooler regions. While this means greater biodiversity for regions closer to the world’s north and south poles, local communities in the tropics that depend on fishing for their livelihood are going to be negatively affected, and as a result, suffer to the extreme.

This is why eBooks are good news. For every eBook you buy, there is at least one tree that doesn’t get cut down out in the forest with all the rest. With the state of global warming and climate change, the world needs all the help it can get. It needs its trees now more than ever.

2. Delivery is immediate.
This is true for many eBooks. Pay for the book now and you’ll be able to download it in seconds. The experience beats having to go to the store to buy a book or having the physical book delivered to wherever you are. No more sleepless nights with that can’t-wait-till-I-get-my-hands-on-this-book fever running high. No more waiting for days, sometimes even weeks and months, just for a book to get to your doorstep. eBooks have effectively eliminated waiting times.

3. Keywords and phrases are easy to find.
Finding a word or phrase inside an eBook is simple and hassle-free. With books, you have to scour every page if you forgot to manually highlight a phrase, or mark your place with a bookmark. Some people resort to folding corners of book pages. All this eats up a lot of time. And in the case of books with so many highlights, finding a word or two was a time-consuming exercise.
