Print vs eBooks

Printed books retain the pleasure of holding a real book but printing on paper and distributing books to readers involves many layers of costs and environmental degradation that can be avoided with electronic distribution of information and entertainment.

After two decades of experimentation with eBook formats and readers, we have had the best results with Adobe PDF files as downloads. The only stipulation is that the receiving device can store, read, and properly display PDF files. Desktop computers offer luxurious accommodation - big screens, big keyboards, and big storage capacity and are the best options for serious learning and work. Smart phones with internet access, reading and writing capabilities are becoming the new personal digital assistants. Several smart phones with larger, full color screens will display a microscopic version of webpages and eBooks. We continue to have misgivings about attempting to read books on small screens.

eBooks as Adobe PDF Files

PDF files are the standard for electronic document distribution worldwide. Adobe has provide free downloads of their PDF reader for many years. Most regular computer users already have Adobe's Reader installed and the reader is integrated into Microsoft's internet explorer. The program is updated regularly as a free service. Adobe PDF files are compact and can be shared, viewed, and navigated by everyone. When you use the Adobe Reader on a laptop or desktop computer you can click on a topic in the table of contents. In some versions you can use bookmarks to jump thru the text. You can also use the search (find) function to look for keywords or phrases. Our books allow you to mark, copy, paste and print text.

Bigger Screens are Better

Screen size is the deciding factor when you attempt to read and understand the contents of an eBook. A 10" tablet, laptop or better, a desktop computer are best suited for meaningful reading and interaction. We hope that readers will study our books. To accomplish meaningful learning you need a larger format display.

We know that people who attempt to read our webpages and books on smart phones cannot enjoy the full benefit of our best efforts. They have difficulty understanding the rich information we provide and often cannot handle transactions online. They only get a small sample of what we offer. We use dual 25" monitors in our office workstations and enjoy reading Web Pages and PDF files. To us, attempting to read meaningful text on a smart phone or small tablet can become an exercise in frustration.

eBook downloads from Alpha Online can be ordered from many more countries, using Pay Pal as payment for immediate downloads. We encourage everyone to order eBooks rather than print books. eBooks are low cost with no shipping charges. Downloads are immediate. eBooks are portable and can be sent anywhere in the world with no shipping cost. eBooks are printable, you can copy selected texts and paste into a word processor.
