What is a digital book?
Lightweight, handy, it takes the shape of a tablet (see main photo) and has the dimensions of a paperback that fits in a handbag just like a jacket’s pocket. With its 4 gigabytes, it is a library. It is available in all situations and can move from one digital medium to another.
The digital book is a text file. First files and sometimes more PDF files. This format had the advantage of being used worldwide, but had one drawback: once the dimensions of a text were adjusted, they could not be changed according to the reading medium. These media proliferated: Reading on the computer, OK, but if you move to a smartphone or tablet without being able to change the font size, the digital book will not be readable.
This is how EPUB, a format designed in the sense of free software, was created: text size is not provided once and for all, but can be changed at the press of a button or with a finger swipe. The reader can choose fonts and the number of pages of their choice, and the text is rearranged in the blink of an eye. So you can start reading a novel on a smartphone and finish it on a tablet without losing any reading quality.
A rich list that is constantly enriched
The digital library contains over 15,000 books, mostly novels, essays and comics. These are mainly editorial innovations in French-speaking literature, foreign literature or genre literature (detective, SF).
In addition to the editorial offer for a limited time loan, the digital library provides access to the “public domain” list Feeding books. You can find a list of over 1200 free downloadable topics from the Digital Library. These are non-copyrighted works, i.e. works that fell into the public domain (mostly 19th and 20th century works). Unlike credit books, they can be downloaded from feedbooks indefinitely and without reservation.
