Prior to discussing the merits and demerits of e-book content, it is imperative to have a clear understanding of the term e-book. Prevalently, e-book connotes to an electronic version of the printed book or traditional print book that can be simply read using computer, smartphone or e-book reader.
Typically, e-book content has myriad advantages. The text in the content of an e-book is searchable; the reader can easily scroll through the e-book until he/she locates the desired text. Additionally, searching of the desired content only takes miniature time (Stair & Reynolds, 2014). Moreover, the content of the e-book is invariably interactive. For instance, the content of the e-book when added to various software solutions, polls, tables, videos and quizzes. The mentioned additions make the content or e-book attractive and easily understandable to the user.
Interestingly, the content of an e-book comes with the resale right. The said resale right permits the sale of the content. To be specific, once you buy the e-book content, you are allowed to sell the very content. Imperatively, printing of e-book content is less costly; also, printing has led to the production of numerous copies (Stair & Reynolds, 2014). Furthermore, the delivery of e-book content takes place via mail, thereby, reducing the shipping cost.
On the contrary, the e-book content has considerable disadvantages. The reader who are not accustomed to working to the personal computers might find challenging in the usage of the discussed technology. Similarly, individuals with visionary complications might find the reading of an e-book content aggravating harm. Also, if the user of an e-book, resolve to print the large volume of e-book continent, it is then costly. Worst mentioning is the fact that some e-book content, EXE e-book, declines operating in MAC.
