This article is devoted to programs that help to read e-books. I think no one will dispute the fact that it is not always convenient to read books in the same Microsoft Word or Adobe Reader?
Whether specialized programs support a bunch of formats (PDF, FB2, DOC, etc.), draw covers (previews) to books where you can easily and quickly change the background color, font size, hyphens, e. All this greatly facilitates both readings and working with the electronic library on the disk.
So, let us get to the point…
FBReader is a multifunctional program for reading electronic books. In addition to Windows, it runs on platforms such as Phone, Android, Mac OS X, Linux, and many others (although if it is actually a leading reader for Windows, then with all other platforms it is far from all so rosy …).
The reader supports all popular formats of books: ePub, fb2, Mobi, HTML, etc.
In its arsenal there is also a network library – it combines free and paid catalogs. Now the download and purchase of books became possible in a few clicks, without leaving the reading room!
By the way, books on the network can be stored on your cloud drive – Google Drive. Due to this, access to the library can be obtained from any device: phone, laptop, personal computer (which is very convenient, you can watch at home or somewhere on the road).
I would also mention such features as font setting (size, type, color, line spacing, etc.), a page leaf (for example, the color of the background), the choice of the way of paging the pages, and much more. In fact, you can configure the program so that it is convenient to read the book even on a small monitor!
