A Newbie's Guide to EReading

eReading still causes a lot of confusion. I thought it might be useful to put together a post of some common questions regarding eReading and to do my best to answer them.

What is eReading?

Simply put, eReading is reading a book, comic, magazine or other similar content on an electronic device rather than in hard copy.

Why should I give up my paperback and switch to eReading?
Like many things, eReading is not an either/or activity. There is no reason why you cannot read books in both hard copy and ebook formats. It is very much a personal choice.
Having said that, there are pros and cons to eReading. I have listed some here to help you decide if eReading is right for you.

Pros:
Convenience. With eReading you can carry your entire library around with you on your eReader, smartphone or tablet. Can you imagine carrying around all 14 hardback books in the Wheel of Time series? With eReading that is no issue. Likewise, if you're living in a small space, an ereader takes up much less room than forty shelves of books.
Accessibility. Most eReaders and eReading applications allow you to adjust the font size to suit your eyesight. This is a real lifesaver if your eyesight isn't what it was.
