Customer Reviews


Fabulous eBook reader! I prefer BookReader over Kindle and iBooks. With BookReader you feel more like you’re reading a conventional book, whereas the other readers seem more web-based. The other readers are fine; don’t misunderstand me. But BookReader is a delight and flawless. I wish they made a version for Windows.

By way of background, I am the publisher of a small imprint, K-Selected Books. Besides this, I’m an author of numerous conventional books. And, if it means anything to this review, I’m a retired university professor for whom publishing was a way of life.
