eBooks for the 21st Century

Alpha Online offers 2 series of eBooks for Download.

  1. Alpha Education Books
  2. Persona Digital Books

The world is moving toward eBooks and other digital content. Printed books retain the pleasure of holding a real book but printing on paper and distributing books to readers involves many layers of costs and environmental degradation that can be avoided with electronic distribution of information and entertainment.

After two decades of experimentation with eBook formats and readers, we have had the best results with Adobe PDF files as downloads. The only stipulation is that the receiving device can store, read, and properly display PDF files. Desktop computers offer luxurious accommodation - big screens, big keyboards, and big storage capacity and are the best options for serious learning and work. Many new portable devices including lighter laptops, smaller net books, tablets, and a variety of smart phones have appeared. In 2010, Apple introduced the iPad with a full color screen. Many competitive tables are being introduced. Screen size is the deciding factor when you attempt to read and understand the contents of an eBook. An Adobe Reader app for tablets is a good way to read PDF files cowloaded from Alpha Nutrition. Some eBooks are free to download directly from webpages.

We continue to have misgivings about attempting to read books on small screens. Even 15" laptop screens are confining. We know that people who attempt to read our webpages and books on smart phones cannot enjoy the full benefit of our best efforts. They have difficulty understanding the rich information we provide and often cannot handle transactions online. They only get a small sample of what we offer. We use dual 25" monitors in our office workstations and enjoy reading Web Pages and PDF files in full color. To us, attempting to read meaningful text on a smart phone can become an exercise in frustration.

eBooks as Adobe PDF Files

PDF files are the standard for electronic document distribution worldwide. Adobe has provide free downloads of their PDF reader for many years. Most regular computer users already have Adobe's Reader installed and the reader is integrated into Microsoft's internet explorer. The program is updated regularly as a free service. Adobe PDF files are compact and can be shared, viewed, and navigated by everyone. When you use the Adobe Reader on a laptop or desktop computer you can click on a topic in the table of contents. In some versions you can use bookmarks to jump thru the text. You can also use the search ( find) function to look for keywords or phrases. Our books allow you to mark, copy, paste and print text.

Amazon's Kindle was a leader in the monochrome, paper-like display screen that has evolved quickly into affordable and versatile devices. Amazon provides eBook downloads via wireless connections. The latest Kindle has a built in PDF reader. You can send PDF documents via your @Kindle address or drag and drop PDF files from your computer to your Kindle (when connected via USB). The Kindle DX( released in April 2010) has an 8-inch by 11-inch screen that displays our PDF books with all the formatting that we create. The smaller Kindle 2 shows the PDF pages intact, but the font size is not scalable and is too small to read comfortably.

Smart phones with internet access, reading and writing capabilities are becoming the new personal digital assistants. Several smart phones with larger, full color screens will display a microscopic version of webpage and eBooks. We hope that readers will study our books. To accomplish meaningful learning they need a larger format display.
