    "A convenient way to read Amazon-bought books"

    March 25, 2012  |   By adeh999


    Pretty easy to download the software and books, and easy to read. also I like the bookmark facility that takes me to where I left off.


    My only quibbles are not being able to read ebooks from other sites on it without laboriously changing the file type ending (e.g. .mobi), and that I sometimes have to hit the synch button to see new books on the library page.


    I've read some negative comments here about crashes etc., which sound like a problem with the initial download rather than the product itself as it works fine on my laptop. I wonder if it's the Cnet download that's at fault? I got mine direct from and can read ebooks downloaded from there fine on my very humble laptop (i.e. you don't need a powerful rig to use this software).
