Davis also provides links to several other posts she has written that have additional resources. 

Nuno Magalhães Ribeiro's curator insight, April 10, 2014 9:38 AM

Os ebooks são um tipo de aplicação multimédia que se impôs nos últimos anos como uma séria alternativa à tecnologia analógica baseada em papel, fruto das muitas vantagens que o suporte digital proporciona para melhorar a experiência da leitura. O Epic Book Guide, descrito neste artigo, é interessante na medida em que ajuda a compreender que apps de leitura de ebooks existem, como as utilizar, para que servem e onde as obter; onde e como descarregar ebooks em vários formatos a partir de sites online; onde encontrar edições gratuitas de livros eletrónicos na Internet e como desenvolver edições de autor em que cada pessoa pode publicar e distribuir um ebook da sua autoria.
