But what is an ebook anyway?

An ebook is a wonderful tool used by publishers to deliver fast and downloadable content to customers. An e-book is a pdf file. That means you can’t save it to your kindle, iPad, or smart phone.  You can read an ebook on some of these devices, but you can’t SAVE it…and that’s what’s important, right!  You can only save it to a computer. It opens in a pdf reader, like Adobe Reader. You can download Adobe for free  here, and then save your bright and shiny ebook to your computer. Sound good? Now let’s get to the learning and painting!
