Why an EBook Library Instead

www.greecepubliclibrary.org
At home we enjoy our ancestral library my dad had constructed for his children back in 1969. Being a bibliophile or a lover of books, he wanted to pass on the legacy by devoting one special room in our home to books. I love that room, but I seldom have time to go there to check out old books in the shelves because I'm tied to my desktop almost all day.

So one day I decided, why not an e-book library? Since I, my wife, and two kids are often in front of the PC monitor, an e-book library is a good idea. Here are advantages. Ebooks cannot be:


  • Destroyed by moths or termites
  • Ravaged by time and wear and tear
  • Easily misplaced
  • Lost even if you lend them to friends (you always have your own copy in your PC)
  • Marred by pen marks made especially by kids
  • Have torn pages
  • Burned
  • Left behind in some place if you take them with you during trips
Moreover, you can easily have the books printed out any time and have it bound into a hard-copy book, either for your physical library or for giving as gifts to friends. So, I decided, e-books are worth investing on. And it's easier for me to write e-books, publish, and market them than write paper back books, publish, and market them. Just imagine, you don't have to carry books from one bookstore to another to sell. With e-books, you market and deliver online.

And if you have to go on long trips, you don't have to bring bulky books with you and pay for the excess baggage. With e-books, all you need is your tablet, iPad, or laptop. Or, go to an Internet shop and open your email where you keep copies of your e-books. Very convenient.

Do keep a physical library for your paper back books, but add a new e-book library, too.
