Just recently I’m so engaged in downloading e-books just to get myself busy during this vacation. I googled for many sites which offers free downloadable e-books but to no avail. I found myself downloading 4 books, then the site requires me to be a VIP membership so I can download more. Obviously, I cant avail for that VIP membership because I got no money to pay for it, So what did I do is to search again for other sites. Tried doing so and I found so many lists on my screen. I even saw torrents, but I got this phobia that if I download torrent files, my lappy might be at risk that’s why, I haven’t even tried.

For those (I think few ) who doesn’t yet know what an E-Book means, let me give a short definition of what it is. According to Wikipedia  “An e-book (short for electronic book and also known as a digital book, ebook, and eBook) is an e-text that forms the digital media equivalent of a conventional printed book, sometimes restricted with a digital rights management system. An e-book, as defined by the Oxford Dictionary of English, is “an electronic version of a printed book which can be read on a personal computer or hand-held device designed specifically for this purpose”.[1] E-books are usually read on dedicated hardware devices known as e-Readers or e-book devices. Personal computers and some cell phones can also be used to read e-books.

Before when I can still access net connection through my phone I used to read E-BOOKs at wattpad. Well this site offers a free downloads of ebooks in different varieties. I would spend all night reading Harry Potter Serries. Chicken Soup for Teenage Soul and a lot more.  I think this site is cool because it does not only provides good and different varieties of e-books but it  also gives chances to the readers to be writers as well, (though I haven’t tried to post my own story because It takes a lot of time) Check this site so you’ll discover what I’m saying here. (visit: http://www.wattpad.com)

Going back, I think E-books had so many pros for bookworms, students and even those people who just wants to read just for pass times. Most obviously, one of the advantage is the cost of Saving. Instead of buying books which might cost us 500 or more we can just find an alternate by downloading ebooks of the same kind.(I used to do this when I was on my first year at cdd) Secondly, is its availability, Well I used to love reading books at our college library, doing research, assignments of even reading novels sometimes. Before I used to dropped by at National Bookstores or Book world just to read, Its kinda bit awkward because everytime I go at bookstores I find myself standing just infront/beside the “NO PRIVATE READING SIGN”, so I guessed this is what I mean by availability,portability and so on. You can read bookS anytime anywhere as long as you have your PDA’s or laptops.

I still got lots of websites where I download E-books. Check out this site I’m giving you guys: (It might help if your interested in reading e-books)
