An e-text (from electronic text) is a text that is available in a digitally encoded format.

E-texts have become popular due to added functionality (such as searching within the text), and easy portability. Hand-held computers such as personal digital assistants (PDAs) allow a large number of e-texts to be carried and read on the move more conveniently than text printed on paper.
