A lot of people are reading the ebook on their smart phones or tablets.
But the vast majority of ebooks available for free or at a discounted price are now being read online.
In fact, the ebook is now the most popular source of e-book reading, according to new research.
The e-books market is worth $3.6bn in the US alone, and the total number of eBooks on Amazon has nearly doubled in the past year to more than 2bn.
According to research firm eMarketer, the number of ebook downloads for Android, Apple, and Kindle devices has almost doubled in just three years.
That’s the fastest pace in a decade.
And e-readers are being increasingly used as a way of delivering content, with a third of US adults using a Kindle in the first half of the year.
And the digital download is being shared more widely.
Amazon now has more than 6.5 million eBook titles, up from 546,000 in 2013.
That number is more than three times the number in 2013, according the firm.
In the UK, the industry-leading e-commerce platform, B&R, estimates that more than 1 million e-Books are available for sale in the UK every month.
But what’s the difference between a free ebook and a paid eBook?
What’s the best ebook for your budget?
This is where the difference comes in.
Many ebooks are free to download and share, but many of them are not.
Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited program lets people pay $8.99 a month for unlimited access to eBooks for a year, or $9.99 for two years.
However, there’s a catch.
“If you buy a book for the Kindle Unlimited plan, the Kindle will not allow you to download any eBooks,” the company explains on its website.
This means you will not be able to read any ebook that you purchased, or even those you own.
That means you’re stuck with your own book until the end of the trial period, when the price of the book goes up.
If you want to buy a paid ebook, however, you can.
You can either pay for the ebook directly through Amazon, or through a third-party publisher, such as iBooks.
And while the cost of a paid Kindle ebook varies from country to country, most of the cheaper ones come with a $1.99 fee.
The difference is that if you pay the full $9 for two books, the total cost will be $9, while if you paid the $9 plus $1, the whole amount is $14.99.
