Book Formats

Books are available in both paper copy and eBook (digital) formats.  Although there are times when I prefer to have a paper copy at my disposal, I highly recommend ebooks for a number of reasons:

  1. Availability:  Shop online to purchase and immediately download your copy over the internet
  2. Price:  Digital copies are typically cheaper than paper copies.
  3. Interactive:  Digital copies may offer interactive content that is simply not available in paper copy form
  4. Multiple Devices:  Digital copies can be viewed on or downloaded to multiple devices
  5. Progress:  Reading progress is synchronized between devices assuming internet services are available while reading.
  6. Environment:  Ebooks are environmentally friendly.
  7. Storage Space:  Multiple eBooks can be stored on a single device saving valuable shelf space.
  8. Portability:  A single device is less cumbersome to carry than several paper copy books
  9. Sources:  Digital products are immediately available from a variety of sources including Amazon, Packt, Kobo, and Apple iBooks
  10. Cross-Platform:  Compatible readers such as Kindle make it easy to read your book from virtually any device.
  11. Online:  Programs such as Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited provide free access to books with certain restrictions.
  12. Subscription Services:  As a Mapt-Pro subscriber, you can download a free ebook everyday.  Visit for more details on this extremely cost effective program.

While paper doesn’t require batteries, the list above makes for a compelling case to consider the digital option.
