If you have your book in a PDF and still wondering why does it still needs to be converted. First of all do not worry as this is the most common query by most authors. Here’s an insight to clear some fog from that confusion.
Firstly, you need to understand that if you have a PDF, you have an electronic version of your book but which does not possess the features to be read by an end user. Though it does appear to be exactly like the end product but, unfortunately, it’s far from a final ebook.
Let us look at the basic differences and the advantages of a proper ebook format over a PDF:
Apart from these key differences, let us take an example to understand why ebook ultimately scores over PDF. The layout of the PDF or a print book is rigid for an eReader. You cannot move the pages back and forth as you can do with an ebook. If chapter 7 appears on page 86 in a print book, it will appear in 86 in PDF as well, which cannot be edited further. If a handwritten note appears on a particular page in a print book, it will appear in the same form in the PDF also. This is not the case with an ebook.
eBook formats take into account all forms of standardization that are required to suit an electronic device display and added fluid features to give the readers a flawless reading experience.
