Ebooks: Open Access Ebooks

Ebook Formats Explained

If you want to read on a laptop or computer, PDF might be better, but Epub is a better format for a smaller device or an ebook reader because it uses flowing text. The pages in pdf files are like photos, and are a certain size. Flowing text means the abooks adapts itself to the size of your device, but the page numbers could be off a bit, so double check if your lecturer gives you a page number to read.
