We hear more and more about it, but never really see frequent users.
For almost two years, I regularly look at the question:
An Ebook for or against? If for which?
I admit loved the paper. Touch his book, admire lend. But I am also aware that on the one hand, it takes a crazy place, and secondly, it will one day spend for environmental reasons.
Many questions bothering me about Ebook. The comfort of reading it like a real book? And autonomy level? Convenience? Cost?
I'm planning to re issue a few days ago when one of the members of the Reading Club has raised the issue of the price of books ebook.
For if e-readers are expensive, e-books are an exorbitant cost I have always struggled to understand.
Why, when the paper book costs € 18, its digital equivalent is it to see 12 € 15?
I find these predatory pricing, knowing that there is more than the cost of printing, storage, transportation or sending ...
And according to some studies, many user Ebook thinking the same thing.
I even read that over 80% of holders Ebook have never purchased a digital book! Piracy is legion for this type of support, and, frankly, I can understand!
Anyway, all this to say until they have carefully considered, I decided my turn to go digital book. An additional paper book for the moment. In any case, as long as prices do not decline and that the catalogs will be expanded so little!
My choice was the cheapest I could find: the E book MPMAN COLOREBOOK 7 (79 € Darty)
I did that yesterday, so it will be a little goal I think, or at least incomplete view.
I appreciate this unit being able to adjust the font size, and most importantly, light. I've read a hundred pages without worry.
After a certain period of inactivity (a bit short for readers a little slow, certainly a setting to do?), He died while saving the page of the book you read. So just turn on and offers to return to your reading or choose another.
The memory size is fine (2GB). I could put fifty pounds without issue, and it remains in place. And in case it is not sufficient, it offers the possibility to add an SD card to add some memory.
The manual is provided in all languages (and I was a bit disoriented by opening the package and finding no instructions. Obviously, it is IN the Ebook)
Talk about things that annoy:
I found it a bit big. A little more than a paperback book. It's a bit stupid, because I often lug around much more imposing paperback, but I imagined it much smaller. But the screen is a good size as a pocket
The cable for connecting it to the computer or to charge (the same) is a little short. I would just 50cm. Not practical when you want to read charging. And to ask for the charge ....
Keys, finally, are a little harsh. We must press for the pages turn.
I think it is especially important that I get used to the handling and use. For now, I do not regret my purchase. This is great for use as I intend to do, and for the first price, it is perfect.
I already get fifty pounds .... My PAL is not likely to decrease with this new "toy". But for now, I am delighted.
Suddenly, a new category has emerged: Ebook. Every book I read by this format will appear. I would try to include information publishers, pages and price if I can!
