How to Make EPUB Books with Google Docs
Although there is very little doubt about the fact that Adobe PDF is the most popular ebook document reader format, but there is also a very strong reason for which the new-age digital readers are preferring EPUB over everything else including even PDF. It’s the flexibility of EPUB file format that gives the readers an edge over PDF files. By saying flexibility, we are pointing at the responsive feature of EPUB files which Adobe is yet to incorporate in its PDF format.
