DID YOU KNOW?
The first tools used by early humans were the hunting club and sharpened stone? The sharpened stone was being used for cutting and killing at first. It then became the first writing instrument used by cavemen. They would scratch pictures on walls to represent the events of their daily lives. Record-keeps used these symbols to represent words and sentences. These pictographs were first written on clay. Around 400 B.C., the Greek alphabet came and began to replace pictographs. It was also the first script written from left to right and became the standard and is being followed to this day. The Greeks used a writing stylus made of metal, bone or ivory to place marks upon wax-coated tablets. These were later replaced by the plant-fiber paper and quill pen. These two things set the foundation for what would be the writing tools that we would continue to use to this day.
It is with the help of these tools that enabled writers to create some of the greatest literary works in history. As technology progressed, these physical books became digital ones. The preferred digital format at first was PDF or Portable Document Format. Over time, e-book replaced it as the standard format for books and the like. There are plenty of e-book readers available in the market. From dedicated devices such as the Kindle to mobile apps. You can enjoy reading your book wherever you are. If you use Google's popular Chrome web browser, you'll be glad to know it supports e-book as well. This is through the EPUBReader for Chrome plugin. It is a web-based tool that allows you to read an e-book straight from your browser. If you're using a Chromebook, then, the same applies since the Chrome OS runs on a browser.
