E book presentation

  1. 1. English/ Hindi integrated project By Group 2 Topic : E-Books
  2. 2. E-books An electronic book is a book-length publication in digital form, consisting of text, images, or both, readable on computers or other electronic devices. Although sometimes defined as "an electronic version of a printed book", many e-books exist without any printed equivalent. Commercially produced and sold e-books are usually intended to be read on dedicated e-book readers, however, almost any sophisticated electronic device that features a controllable viewing screen, including computers, many mobile phones, and all smartphones can also be used to read e-books.
  3. 3. The Idea of E-book ▪ Some years earlier the idea of the e-reader came to Bob Brown after watching his first "talkie". In 1930, he wrote an entire book on this invention and titled it "The Readies" playing off the idea of the "talkie“. In his book, Brown says that movies have out maneuvered the book by creating the "talkies" and as a result reading should find a new medium: A machine that will allow us to keep up with the vast volume of print available today and be optically pleasing.
  4. 4. Books Go Digital!! ▪ E-Books offer the following obvious advantages (assuming you have an eBook reader) : ▪ They're easily readable. Most readers offer zoom functions, letter resizing, and so forth. ▪ They're easily portable. You can carry multiple books on one device. ▪ They're much more environmentally friendly. You don't have to kill a few trees for each book, and let's not even talk about the ink. Recycling only goes so far. ▪ Note-taking is much more powerful, and the notes you write can be found and referenced quickly and easily. And they don't have to be permanent. ▪ Lighting conditions essentially become meaningless. Many readers incorporate display lighting allowing you to read whenever and wherever you like.
  5. 5. Dedicated hardware readers and mobile reader software There have been several generations of dedicated hardware e-book readers. The Rocket eBook and several others were introduced around 1998, but did not gain widespread acceptance. The establishment of the E Ink Corporation in 1997 led to the development of electronic paper, a technology which allows a display screen to reflect light like ordinary paper without the need for a backlight; electronic paper was incorporated first into the Sony Librie (released in 2004) and Sony Reader (2006), followed by the Amazon Kindle, a device which, upon its release in 2007, sold out within five hours.
