About e-readers
An e-reader is a digital device used to access and read e-books. The specialty of an e-reader is that it is handy, and end-users can carry this device without any extra effort. Moreover, e-reader vendors are offering licenses to access e-books either free of charge or at a discounted price. The whole library of e-books that can be accessed through an e-reader provides a great advantage for end-users compared to moving around localities searching for the right books and spending energy, time, and money. The benefits of e-readers are being realized by potential customers across the globe.
