An e-book is a book saved as a file, usually PDF format, which you download onto your computer and can open it and read it on your computer. If you have a laptop, you can move it to the kitchen and read the recipe on it as you make the food.

You need Adobe reader to read the pdf files. It is free and safe. Most scanned documents are saved in this format.

Do you offer this as an e-book?
