FBReader: eBook Reader, Manager, & Downloader
FBReader is a dead-simple all-in-one desktop and mobile eBook reader...
...What makes it remarkably outstanding is an option to download eBooks quickly under creative commons license and also a build-in library to create a short collection of your favorite books.
Before you begin, head over to the preferences and point the library to the book path directory where all your eBooks are residing. It supports plenty of formats, such as, ePub, fb2, plucker, Mobipocket, oeb, OpenReader, ztxt, rtf, pdf, djvu, odt, iSilo, and many others.
To download books, head over to the Network Library by clicking the network library icon(books+globe icon) give on top and start browsing the public domain books. It has all the popular books including, Pride and Prejudice, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, The War of the Worlds, and many others.
I have had a look at deploying it on the network and it has resisted all of my efforts. Nevertheless I have installed it for an English teacher [for use when he logs on to his laptop locally] who can't wait to get started.
I will also be using it at home.
