Ads by Google

Windows 8 is here, and with it, all kinds of apps are coming along that support the exciting new features of the new version of the OS. A really cool one is BookReader, which allows you to read all kinds of DRM-free EPUB books in a way that takes advantage of some of the cool features of Windows 8. Unfortunately, it only supports DRM-free books, so books purchased through Kindle and iBooks will not work with the app.

The coolest feature of this reader is the ability to pin books directly to Start. This makes it easy for you to pull up your favorite books and start reading. It also shows you your progress on the Live Tiles, so you know exactly where you stand with the books.


The BookReader Windows 8 app also features a multi-column interface that is designed to fit in with the Windows 8 design philosophy. It supports portrait and landscape viewing modes. You can also change the color scheme depending on whether you are reading at night or during the day. If you have Windows 8, this is the perfect eReader for you.
