The article describes the use of eBookMan, a device which enables books to be read by a computer. The device was made by Franklin Electronic Publishers Inc. One advantage that E-books has over traditional books is their weight. The eBookMan weighs less than a paperback and can hold up to 16MB worth of text, which is about 40 to 50 books. In addition, the backlight feature and the parchment color screen helps make reading quite comfortable for the eyes.
