Books by Dick B. have been available as print books--and, more recently, as Print-On-Demand (P.O.D.) books--for many years. We are about to make some of those books available as electronic books (also known as "e-books," "ebooks," "eBooks," and "digital books"). An electronic book is a book-length publication in digital form which is readable on computers and other electronic devices, such as dedicated hardware devices known as eReaders or eBook devices. Personal computers and some cell phones can also be used to read eBooks.
These "eBooks" will soon be available through major online retail outlets such as Amazon (via the Kindle devices and apps), Apple's iBookstore (iBooks for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch devices), Barnes & Noble (via the Nook devices), Google eBookstore, Sony (via the Reader devices), Diesel, Kobo (via the eReader devices), and over 1,000 more eBook worldwide distribution sites, such as schools, universities, private book clubs, retail stores, and other outlets that have secure internal databases within their intranets.
