So what are eBooks and eAudiobooks? An eBook is a digital full-text version of a book that can be read on a computer or a digital device. An eAudiobook is digital recording of a book, similar to Books on CDs. The Davenport Public Library subscribes to several services which supply eBooks, eAudiobooks, and additional digital media for check-out:
