So unlike when you bought. Devices just had to read. In fact, I often re-read books I like so I appreciate keeping them in my library.
In some cases ebooks can be authorized for more than one device, so perhaps you and your best friend can still share books, but for now ebook sellers are determined to keep you from sharing your ebooks.
There are so many formats, and each one is determined to succeed. Remember the VHS and Beta fight in the s?

Save Gas, Save Time: Also, buying electronically will inevitably save you gas by not going to a physical bookstore, and time as from selection to purchase and reading an electronic book can be done in mere minutes.
Ease-of-Use Not all ebook software is exactly the same, but many of them have similar settings and features that are common: Adjust Font Size for any Eyes: Adjust the font size, type and background color of your electronic book per your preferences.
Add Notes, Bookmarks or Highlight: Instead of earmarking pages or marking up your paper copy, electronic copies allow you to add and delete bookmarks and notes at will and as many as you see fit.
