We’ve all been in a situation where we try to hide the book cover from everyone else in the waiting room. Maybe you’re just shy and you don’t like people seeing what book you’re reading. E-readers have totally changed the way people read in public. It’s virtually impossible for someone to see exactly what it is you’re reading on your e-reader, so you can peacefully read whatever you want, wherever you want.
Another great advantage of converting your library to eBooks is that the electronic book industry is much kinder to the environment. Buying an eBooks as opposed to a printed publication saves the raw materials that go into producing and distributing a printed edition. In addition, many eBooks are offered at much lower prices than their traditional counterparts and some eBooks are even offered free of charge!
One of the most prominent e-readers to date, The Amazon Kindle, was first introduced to the market in 2007. Marketed and designed by Amazon, Kindle is a series of e-readers dedicated to displaying, storing and providing access to the Kindle store.
Currently there are approximately four million eBooks available in the Kindle store, ready to be downloaded to a Kindle device for instant enjoyment. Due to the demand for access to eBooks, Amazon has also reached out to PC users with its Kindle for PC which was released in 2009.
