Ebooks are books in electronic format. Like other electronic data, they can be distributed easily across networks. They can be stored on disk, tape or CD/DVD and can be viewed on a screen.
Gone are the days of hunting high street bookshops for a particular book when companies like Amazon make online buying safe and easy. Like a normal book, an ebook can be purchased online, but unlike traditional books, they can be downloaded immediately for viewing. Generally they are available 24/7 online. There are other advantages other than their 24/7 availability and immediate downloads.
Ebooks are cheaper and more versatile than traditional books. They are generally viewed on a screen but can usually be printed if required. What's important here is that YOU make the choice. Ebooks can be distributed and stored easily. Consider encyclopaedias now available on CD or DVD. Technical books in ebook format can be indispensable. Important topics or articles can be printed out for reference whilst the original ebook is left intact.
You will find a variety of ebooks here that are either downloadable from this site or from other publishers. For clarity, the ebooks have been arranged alphabetically by topic. As the numbers grow, they will be further divided into sub-topics with pointers to the appropriate web pages.
