What’s The Difference Between eBooks And Digital Books?

These days, there are many people who are not aware of the differences between e-book and a digital book. Believe it or not, most of these people think that they’re only the same. This is far from reality as these two are completely different.

Electronic books or PDF books, scanned, exact digital copy of standard printed, published books are the many different names called for digital books. You can think of them as the improved copies of paperback or actual hard books we know. When it comes to the digital version of new publications, they are nearly the same to the original. When talking about very old or ancient publication even, they’re better compared to the original you’d find on shelf of a local library.

Because of the fact that they are exact copies of original prints, this only increases the quality of the pages and overcome common issues with old books similar to yellowed pages, see through or onion skin type paper, stains, brown inks, colored paper and the likes. These are scanned pages and not copied pages while ensuring that the quality of print is representing better quality than those to the print of original book. As a matter of fact, most of the digital books are available in PDF format though some come in plain text format. Most of the time, digital books are less expensive than their paperback or hard back counterparts and there is no need to think of shipping costs unless they’ll be delivered on a CD.

E-books on the other hand are digital as well but, they’re written and designed for the internet. Most if not all e-books were never published officially unless you count posting something online as publishing. Majority of eBooks were made to be written quickly with just little or no expense except for the possibility of distributing it. Most e-books are short and normally have 100 pages or less but is finished in less than 50 pages most of the time. For avid readers, they can finished reading ebooks in few hours.

A lot of the eBooks are manuals, self-help books or some sort, though there are eBooks that are in the genre of fiction and history. Oftentimes, they have little to no literary value and their intentions are being the distribution of instructions, ideas and/or facts. There are some instances as well where you’ll come across the ebook version of soft or hard cover book. But if you’ll just look to it closely, you will discover that the ebook version is fewer pages compared to the original copy. Having said that, we can conclude that e-Books are the condensed version of original book.
