A new concept of E-books (Electronic Books) has been recently introduced. They are amongst the recent inventions that mankind has witnessed. These are the same as our regular day to day books but can be accessed through one's personal computer or even one's laptop. Another medium ruling the hearts of our today's generation is the evolution of Kindle, it is nothing but just a device that can download various versions of books, blogs etc. This electronic medium is well versed to storing large number of books in this one simple device which can serve to be convenient and handy for a regular day to day basis. The pros of E-books are such that they do not need to be paid for like our regular books but just downloading it can serve the purpose and delivery of the book via e-mail is another advantage. There are instances when one loses the book but these due to these E-books we can easily find them on the World Wide Web further reducing the hassle of purchasing a new book that will incur you additional costs. The audio and video versions available in E-books can improve one's understanding of a particular subject they are reading. Switching of pages is just a matter of seconds and you can read which ever part you are interested in or wish to study. This is a very handy and portable device and hence convenient to use and carry at all times. We all know about the wastage of paper which is increasing day by day but E-books on the other hand save paper and in turn result to be environmental friendly.

But the darker side is that this particular Electronic device can strain your eyes and result in giving perpetual headaches.Even though this is a handy device printing them will increase further costs and further waste paper. As we have seen that these are electronic books hence they survive on batteries and time to time charging is required hence if it is not charged then accessing the E-book is not possible but on the contrary books are accessible at all times. Few E-books can only be viewed by paying a minimum cost and its compatibility to only certain selected software's makes it less feasible for its usage and hence our regular books serve as a better option for some but some yet prefer E-books. Both these mediums have its pros and cons but it is our call to choose amongst them the option that suits our purpose and this freedom of choice will always be prevalent as well as necessary.
