Digital revolution has a profound impact on our lives. Everything is going digital. We have adopted all innovations in technology which include e-commerce, e-banking, e-learning and even e-governance. The impact of digitalization is so extreme that the conventional reading habit is changing. People are now getting attracted to books in digital format. The culture of the e-reading or online bookstore is gaining momentum gradually in Nepal.
