Every year, thousands of trees are chopped off to create hundreds of books. In an era when the focus on environment has become more discernible than ever, eBooks have turned out to be an elegant and simple solution to the problem of felling of trees for producing papers. Scientists have noted that eBooks have significantly low carbon footprint than the normal hard-back or paper books. Sharda University says that even though eBooks can not completely replace the essence of paper books, yet they have great advantages, especially for students and avid readers.
Apart from being eco-friendly, eBooks optimize the convenience for readers. So the readers no more are obliged to carry those heavy books with them all the time. All they need to have is a smart phone or an eBook reader that will facilitate the purpose. Also, in such electronic devices, people can keeps hundreds of books at a time and read them at own will and convenience. So a device of just a few grams in weight ends up becoming people’s personalized library.
Many intellectuals have even argued that while reading on paper books, readers get the liberty of making notes or marking specific words or excerpts. But the advancement in technology has made even this possible with e-Books. There are many e-Book reading apps which allow people to make notes or highlight/mark specific segments of books. Moreover, you also get an electronic dictionary on the go. Sharda University regards to all these factors as major considerations of a reader that eBooks completely take care of.
