In the last few years eBooks have gained in presence on the general market, but to be able to read many of the formats that are published on a computer it is necessary to have a program that has been developed with that purpose in mind, like CoolReader.
This free open source project, also known as CoolReader Engine, has been developed to work mainly with the ePub (electronic publication) and FB2 (FictionBook) formats, even though it still offers support for eBooks in other formats, like: TXT, RTF, HTML, CHM and TCR.
What else does it offer?
- Allows you to add bookmarks.
- Hyphenation dictionary.
- Tables of contents, to speed up accessing the data.
- The most complete support for FB2, including styles, tables and footnotes.
- It can read the eBooks directly from inside a ZIP file.
- And a lot more...
Therefore, if you like reading and you're meaning to use your computer to be able to read when you have time to spare, CoolReader is one of the best options available at present.
