What are they?

An e-book is different from a paper book because it is not limited to pictures and text that cannot change rapidly; it can integrate video, audio, animation, and even interactive simulation into what the person is "reading", and updates can be added without the cost of reproducing the entire book.

An e-book is an electronic book that can be read digitally on a computer screen, a special e-book reader, a personal digital assistant (PDA), or even a mobile phone. E-books are presented on a screen rather than on paper. The most popular form of an ebook is the .pdf file, however there are several different ebook readers on the market now and many different forms of ebook.

You can do almost everything you can with regular books, except “smell” them." Valc
