You Do NOT Need an eReader

Free Apps to purchase and read ebooks directly on your computer or other device are available for Windows, OSX, Android, iOS and sometimes Linux. Yes, you can buy your first ebook as a test right from your computer… or download thousands of free classics and public domain books.

NOTE: If you purchase an ebook via a computer app from a specific vendor, and then later buy a portable ereader device from that vendor…

  • all of your previously purchased books will automatically load to your new ereader and
  • still be available on your computer as well.

Better yet, if you buy an Android / iOS device and load the vendor’s app to that device, again all of your purchases will load to your device and still be available on our computer as well.

You can even load apps from all of the vendors and then shop wherever you want. That’s what J.C. does, though he has a few additional tricks for pulling any vendor’s ebooks into his own preferred reader app called Mantano. He also speaks highly of Aldiko. Both have a free version to try and use indefinitely.
