How to Start Reading eBooks

______________________________

One of the great new inventions of the last several years is the e-book, which is a digital book that you can read on a variety of devices. From Amazon’s Kindle to an iPad or standard laptop, there are many ways to read e-books and plenty of places to purchase them or obtain them for free. But before you get started, you need to decide on your e-book platform. After that, you can begin reading some stories and building your collection!

Invest in an iPad if you plan to read a variety of image-rich materials. With an iPad, you can purchase e-books from Kindle, Kobo, Nook, Google Play Books, and more, giving you much more variety in terms of suppliers. It’s also better suited for image-rich materials like comic books.
  • Don’t use an iPad to read for long periods of time, especially outdoors—it will strain your eyes with its LCD display.

Find an e-book application for your mobile phone. Whether you have an iPhone or Android, there are many applications designed for reading e-books. The most popular are OverDrive Media Console, Kindle App, Google Play Books, Bluefire Reader, and iBooks. Compare the features of each and select one catered to your needs.

  • Use Open Fire Media if you plan to read content offered through libraries and schools.
  • Download Bluefire Reader if you are going to read e-books from many different sources.
  • Select Kindle App if you have an Amazon Prime membership—this opens up over 1 million books for you to borrow from the Kindle Owners’ Lending Librar

Download e-book software onto your computer. If you want to read an e-book on your desktop or laptop, there many programs to choose from. The Kindle App, Calibre, and Adobe Digital Editions are the most popular free software and all have Windows and Mac versions.[1]

  • If your browser is Firefox by Mozilla, you can download the EPUBReader to read ePub files right in your browser.[2]

Purchase an e-reader tablet if you plan to read for long hours. Devices like Kindle (Amazon) and Nook (Barnes & Noble) have longer battery lives than iPads, meaning you can travel without a charger for weeks. They also come with e-ink screens that prevent you from staring directly into the source of light, which is easier on the eyes.[3]

  • Choose a tablet if you plan to read outside during the day often.
  • Remember that e-tablets are only compatible with e-books purchased from their respective companies (Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Sony, etc.).
  • Download conversion software to remove digital rights management (DRM) from e-books and read them on any device. However, bear in mind these are third-party programs that are not guaranteed to be effective.
