In this case, one can use cloud syncing to make the reading experience easy. You can bookmark pages as you read thus being able to pick up from the page that you were on.

Highlights and Annotations

It’s easy for a reader to make highlights or notes without having to interfere with the neatness of the ebook. If it’s a love quote that one intends to use as a pickup line, then one can easily highlight it. This helps one highlight major points that need some attention later on.

Dictionaries and Translations

At times, a reader may be unsure about some words or phrases that they come across when reading a book. With an ebooks, you do not have to move from your reading zone and move around looking for a dictionary. All this is taken care of since most ebook readers are usually pre-loaded with dictionaries that a reader can use. You can also select and search the word online.
