eBooks For All
So what is an E-BOOK ?
You know what a standard trade book or paperback looks
like. Well, "E" is short for electronic. So we have an
electronic or digital book that exists in a world of
electrons, either on disk or on the hard-drive of your
computer. The advantages as far as space saving
,convenience of storage, and ease of access are enormous
and obvious. Also, the ecologically-minded person should
feel quite satisfied that a few less notty pines will meet
the lumberman's ax this winter.
Now we are not "tree-huggers" by any stretch of
imagination, having been in the tradtional, pulp devouring,
publishing business for 32 years and no one can dispute the
fact that traditional trade and paperback books do use up a
lot of natural resouces in the form of wood pulp for paper.
So this sounds like a good idea . Right ? Yes ?
..... We couldn't agree more.
So today's true bibliophiles now have a new, more
economical, ecologically sound choice-The E-BOOK!.They are
available as a downloadable file right from our web site.
They can be read anywhere on a lap-top or desk-top computer
and don't take up an inch of shelf space. For folks that
have a visual impairment, If you are running Microsoft
Windows you can install accessibility options that allow
you to enlarge or decrease the text on the screen to a size
comfortable for you. Access the Microsoft Help function to
learn about accessibility and screen resolution.

idea to check which Netscape or Microsoft

problem will be solved by simply upgrading to their
latest version of the browsers.
