Why do I need to have an EBook?

For centuries, book lovers dreaming to have a space in your home to have hardwood libraries full of books so they can feed their love of literature. Of course not everyone can have the money and space to house the library of our dreams.
 Although for years there are different types of handheld devices that, among other functions, for viewing text documents, the reality is that they had come to meet the needs of those looking to spend some time reading, as tired end LCDs sight, preventing to enjoy a prolonged reading.
In recent times came new devices, specially designed for reading electronic books, which renewed the concept of screens, which is known as electronic ink ("electronic ink" or simply "E-Ink").

Electronic ink.

Electronic ink on the screen, unlike in the LCD, requires no backlight and has much lower power consumption. In these devices, the representation of text and images on the screen is produced by electromagnetic stimulation of tiny capsules of a matrix to form the points (white or black).
As a first highlight of the displays based on electronic ink stands that reduce eyestrain and also consume less energy. It should be noted that these devices have a rechargeable battery that gives them independence and different types of electrical connection to a computer, among which we highlight the classic USB connector.
The EBooks that use electronic ink reader on their screens are usually very thin and have a self storage unit (often with the ability to expand by standard flash memory). Its features also include the possibility of wireless (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or 3G), keyboard (real or virtual) and audio output for viewing through voice.

Accessibility.


Accessibility is another pillar of these devices. Having an EBook reader allows us to have hundreds of books in the physical space occupied by a magazine or newspaper paper (or less) and also run with the advantage of being able to load or acquire new with great simplicity, as these devices can connect to the computer to incorporate books or connect to online stores to buy them, in the place where we are, whether in the comfort of our home or in a hotel room, if you're on the go. Of course this is a really unmatched convenience in this regard. Notably, the EBook reader can not only display books or PDF files, but also have the ability to display text documents (DOC, HTML, RTF and TXT, etc. depending on model), images and Internet content, such as newspapers and blogs.
