Online books

What is an online book?
An e-Book is a protected online book that can be read from beginning to end on any laptop or desktop computer anywhere in the world as long as there is an internet connection.
The online books have "smart links" connecting between the contents and index to the book pages in a way that allows the reader to 'jump' from an index entry or the contents to the right page in the book with a click of the mouse.
These books have an option of textual searches, text highlighting, and adding personal remarks.
In order to see a demonstration of an eBook please press here.
The books that have an online books version as well, can be identified by the existence of an eBook price.
Books that are available in an online version only, will have a green banner on them.
