You can pay for a book online using credit cards or PayPal and get a copy instantly.
But that’s not what’s happening with ebooks.
Amazon and Barnes & Noble are offering a cheaper, no-strings-attached way to buy ebooks, which typically cost about $4.99 or less to buy online.
The companies have teamed up with the ebook community to make it easy to buy books on Amazon and Apple’s App Store.
But what is an ebook?
For the uninitiated, an ebook is a digital book that is made up of text, images, and video.
You can read an ebook online, or download it for offline reading.
You’ll pay a small fee to download an ebook, but the ebook itself will be free.
Amazon, for example, is offering free ebooks for Kindle users.
But the same applies to Apple’s Apple Books, which include a $3.99 ebook that can be purchased for $5.99.
Barnes & Nobles Apple Bookstore is offering the same free ebook for a limited time.
Apple Books can be used on iPads and iPhones, and the store also sells Apple Watch, Apple TV, and Apple headphones.
Amazon’s free ebook, however, is available only on the Kindle e-reader and will be discontinued in April 2019.
A more affordable option, the App Store’s Kindle eBooks, are free to download.
They can be ordered through the app or by searching for the title.
