What is an e-Book?
e-Books (electronic books) are full book-length publications in digital form. Often times e-Books will have an equivalent hard copy but there are instances when a book will only exist as an e-book without a hard copy publication. Electronic books can be viewed on a PC, Smartphone, e-readers, tablets and other forms of portable electronic devices.
