eBooks simply make money. While a single eReader does cost much more money than one book, after you have bought that, individual eBooks are only a fraction of the cost of an actual paper book. When you convert a book, so many expenses are taken out. You don't pay to get it printed, to store copies of the book, or any other manufacturing costs. Readers are also more likely to purchase your book when they don't have to leave home to get it, and it only costs them a few dollars. You can also still sell hard copies of your book. Even if you already have a real book published, you can still get it converted into an eBook format, and have it available in both markets

eBooks can make the book easier for your readers to read. With a built in ability to change the size and style of font, people can customize their reading experience. The backlight of the reader can be adjusted to match a reader's preference. One of the biggest advantages to an eBook is that it can also be quickly and efficiently translated in to other languages, making it even more available.
