EPub is the globally accepted standard ebook format. It was designed for the ebook market so that there would be a single format that brought some conformity to the market. EPub is the file extension of an XML format for reflowable digital books and publications.
The ePub format can be read on a wide range of electronic book readers, including the Apple iPad, Nook eReader, Kobo eReader, etc. etc. In fact virtually every device, apart from Amazon’s Kindle eReader, can read the ePub format.
As the reading of eBooks has grown, so has the use of the ePub format. Since the launch of the iPad, Nook etc and the development of book reading apps for the iPhone and other phones, ePub has become, along with the Kindle, one of the leading eBook formats. Authors and publishers all over the world are having their books converted into the ePub format alongside the Kindle.
The epub conversion process is similar to other eBook formats. The simplicity or difficulty in the conversion process largely depends upon the file being converted. Extensive use of images, tables, and other complex formatting in the book which needs to be converted, significantly increases the difficulty of converting the file. And to get the best results the professional help of an eBook conversion service is required to achieve a good end product.
Once converted the file will need to be tidied up and validated. Validation is essential (especially for the Apple iPad) for a book that will work across all platforms. The validated ePub format eBook will then display correctly on the different reading devices and apps, such as a Nook, Kobo, iPad or any other mobile device.
