Shopping and buying books online is becoming more acceptable among the new generations of bibliophile's (books lovers) not only in developed countries but also in developing countries such as India. Online book browsing and buying is indeed transforming the way readers and an author come together, and is already creating a huge effect on the publishing and book retail industries .There is a shift in the trend of buying books from a conventional store. The main reason for this shift in the trend is the benefits of shopping online over a conventional book store.

Convenience: First thing first. When you shop online you save your precious time and energy as you do not have to wander from one store to another in search of a book. Other than that there are no fixed hours for an online book store. This is especially useful for moms with small children, people that are home-bound, or simply in times of inclement weather.

No limited choice: A conventional store has limited space to display and store its book but this is not the case with an online store. Most of the stores have huge databases and generally people find those rare to find books also on these online stores and in case you do not see what you were looking for then you can move on to another store which is just a click away.

Price Comparison: When you enter a store, you have to settle down at a price the vendor has placed on the particular book. But when you are shopping online you have the choice to compare the price with number of other stores.

Easy access to consumer reviews: When you are buying from an online store, you get the chance to go through the reviews of people who have previously purchased that book. This will give you the beforehand knowledge of that particular book.

Huge discounts: Not only do you save your time and energy but also money when you are looking for your favourite book online. These online stores offer a great deal of discount coupons from time to time that helps you in saving money on your purchases. Apart from that low shipping price also make shopping for books online an economical affair.

With the huge popularity of e- book readers, online bookstores also stock up on e-books. When you buy an e-book, it immediately gets delivered on your e-book reader.
