I’ve been a lover of books for as long as I can remember. When I was in grade school, I would go to the library during summer vacation and bring home as many books as I could carry. I would look through the children’s section of the library and pull out any book that looked the slightest bit interesting and by the end of the trip I’d have a huge stack. I’d read all of those books before the due date came, then and we would return to the library for another stack.
Nowadays, I am an avid reader of science fiction, metaphysics, philosophy, and psychology. I make my living in technology, and I feel that combining books and technology makes for the best of both worlds.
And that brings us to ebooks. The thing that I like most about ebooks is the fact that you can search the text for a word or phrase. I started wishing for that as soon as I became familiar with computers and word processing. I could search for a word in a digital document, but if I wanted to look up something in a book I had to manually flip through a zillion pages to find what I was looking for.
This website focuses on ebook reader software. There is a ton of information out there about all of the new ebook readers that are on the market, but the software is what makes them work for the average user/reader. Software is what you use to download an ebook, transfer it to your device, and ultimately read it. I will also post information about hardware (the devices themselves) from time to time, as it seems appropriate.
