No, as I've mentioned before, since e is an abbreviation, it should be e.book.

e.book = extraterrestrial book

Of course, we know that eBooks aren't normal so maybe they are made by aliens (from another planet).

But to be serious for a moment, a lot of eBooks are made by people with no work ethic (no pride in their work). They do the minimum needed to produce an eBook and it's a crap shoot if it's going to turn out OK. Even if the text is OK, the formatting usually isn't.

That's right. There is no such thing as a t-shirt, f-hole or g-string, and anyone who tells you otherwise is lying.
