An electronic book (also e-book, ebook,
electronic book, digital book) is a book-length publication in digital form,
consisting of text, images, or both, and produced on, published through, and
readable on computers or other electronic devices. An e-book can be
purchased/borrowed, downloaded, and used immediately, whereas when one buys or
borrows a book, one must go to a bookshop, a home library, or public library
during limited hours, or wait for a delivery.
Electronic publishing or ePublishing includes
the digital publication of e-books and electronic articles, and the development
of digital libraries and catalogues.
EPUB (short for electronic publication;
alternatively capitalized as ePub, ePUB, EPub, or epub, with "EPUB" preferred by
the vendor) is a free and open e-book standard by the International Digital
Publishing Forum (IDPF).
Self-publishing is the publication of any book
or other media by the author of the work, without the involvement of an
established third-party publisher.
One of the greatest benefits brought about by
ebooks software is the ability for anyone to create professional ebooks without
having to fork out thousands of dollars to design and publish a book. People can
easily become authors overnight and earn income from selling online ebooks.
