It doesn’t matter because their here to stay and everyone has their own preference according to the type of book.
For book publishers it certainly overcomes all those intractable problems of trying to ship books to satisfy customers in many disparate locations all over the world. Now it’s a simple click of the mouse and the books yours, wherever you are!
If you want ‘Spice Islands’ or ‘East Indies’ as an e-book, here is what is available:
E-READER, Kindle – VENDOR Amazon
E-READER, Apple – VENDOR i-Tunes
E-READER, All other handhelds – EPUB – VENDOR Dymocks
E-READER, All Tablets including iPad – PDF – VENDOR Dymocks
E-READER, All Mac’s and PC’S – PDF – VENDOR Dymocks, http://www.dymocks.com.au
My recommendation is to get the PDF format, the software is free from Adobe Digital Editions, the book will be in colour so you can enjoy the beautiful maps and images, and the layout will be the same as in the book.
Please give me your feedback and experience with your e-Reader.
