- No pencil or highlighter. You type notes or make marks in a side column instead.
- No flipping ahead. You scroll or use the slider at the bottom of the screen.
- But it also means you have less of a feel for the size of the text ahead – whether this is going to be a novella or an epic.
- You’re less likely to lose your place if the pages slip free of your finger.
- Search function for a particular word or phrase. Now this is really useful!
- Easier to transport and store. You can have hundreds at hand on your reader, tablet, or laptop, where they add nothing to the weight of the device.
- You can discover more unknown writers.
- Your hands can be free. You need them only to tap to the next page or keyboard a note. Or, if you’re like me, there’s no pencil in the hand that isn’t holding the book open.
- You’re less likely to read it at the beach, I suppose, because of the glare. But I find the ebook easier to read at a table.
- It’s cheaper. Ideally, much cheaper.
