While it is still more convenient to read books in their physical paper format, more and more people are choosing the e-books over their physical editions. There are many well known ebook readers available for purchasing the ebooks and reading them. For example, there is Amazon Kindle using which we can buy and read thousands of e-books.
But if you want to read books on your desktop computer and you want to try something other than Kindle app, then you can use a freeware program called Koodo Reader. It is an open-source e-book reader that can also be used to manage your e-book collection. The software can be used on all the major desktop operating systems such as Windows, Linux and macOS. It is available both in form of an installable package and as a portable program.
