What is an eBook?

An eBook is an electronic version of a printed book that can easily be read on a computer or handheld device, with properly formatted text and images, no matter the size of the screen. The text is reflowable — meaning when one screen is full, it will flow to the next — and the images will resize to fit screen proportions.

eBooks are also the fastest way to self-publish your book worldwide, making it easy for millions of readers to find, buy, and enjoy your book online on retail sites like Amazon’s Kindle Store, Barnes & Noble’s NOOK Store, Apple Books, and many more. With eBooks, readers can take hundreds, even thousands of books on the go, and all on one device.

There are a lot of ways you can benefit from making an eBook. Learn the basics by watching our video.
