E-Book or Electronic Book is the digital equivalent for the printed book. E-books are a fairly recent phenomenon. These small, portable, electronic devices are not just books; they could be magazines, books o even newspapers. Some of the advantages are: Text can be searched automatically and cross-referenced using hyperlinks, making the e-book format ideal for works that take profit from such functions. An e-book can automatically open at the last read page or E-books allow for greater fidelity in color reproduction compared to CMYK color printing (although some e-book readers have only monochrome displays), for instances.  Some of disadvantages such as If not viewed on computers, e-books require the purchase of an electronic device and/or peripheral software which can display them. If they are to be viewed on a personal computer, it may require additional software and Looking at a screen for a long time may cause eye trouble and sometimes headaches.

The trend of the electronic books is developing until now there are several projects to make digital libraries, such us that who wants to make a common library with books from all across Europe. And there are already some such as Miguel de Cervantes’s Virtual Library.
