So, whats an eBook or e-book means
An eBook stands for an electronic book; it is a digital version of your manuscript. ebooks consist of texts, images, or most of the time both. Mobile devices like iPhone or Android, tablets like an iPad or Surface, and eReaders like Kindle or Nook were used to read an ebook.
Before the dot-com crash of 2000-2002 ebooks emerged as mainstream business and later did not find wide acceptance by the publishing industry, and investments were subsided in e-reading devices and e-book technologies.
But when Sony Corporation in 2006 released an e-reading device and Amazon.com in 2007 released Kindle e-book sales grew rapidly.
