Don’t Own an eReader or Tablet? Consider free eReader Apps

March 14, 2014

You don’t have to own a designated eReader to enjoy reading eBooks. If you own a computer, you already have an eReader if you download an eReader app.  The following are free popular eReader Apps:

Adobe Digital Editions

Download at www.adobe.com/products/digitaleditions

Adobe Digital Editions (ADE) is a popular eReader that libraries that lend eBook recommend. It reads the epub format which translates into any eBook that is not in Amazon’s proprietary format. A negative of Adobe Digital Editions is that some eBooks look great in the eReader and others have formatting that doesn’t view well in ADE.

Calibre E-book management

Download at calibre-ebook.com

Calibre includes a very basic eReader built into its software application which is easy to use and which will read any eBook format.

Kindle App

Download at www.amazon.com under Kindle department select Free Kindle reading apps.

Kindle is my favorite eReader app.

Nook for PC

Download at www.barnesandnoble.com under Nook menu select free reading apps

I haven’t really used the Nook app but it appears that it works for only eBooks purchased from Barnes & Noble. So if you buy eBooks there, give it a try.

The eReaders mentioned above are not the only eReader apps available but they are ones that have some flexibility for use.
