It’s my first and last time to think about purchasing from ebooks.com. We are required by most book publishers to supply their ebooks with anti-piracy controls , much to the frustration of some customers who just want a PDF or epub file. The "Adobe Digital Editions" reader is easily the worst reading interface – on any digital device going back to the earliest computers – I have ever seen. The text is basically worthless if the reader is a UX disaster. Unfortunately most of our publishers require that we only sell their ebooks in encrypted format.
Kobo’s new e-book reader is designed for reading in the bath, by the pool or waiting grimly in the rain for your bus. Amazon’s Kindle Oasis is the most advanced, and the most expensive, e-reader Amazon sells. The Oasis is a little wider than the Paperwhite, though it weighs about the same, and it also has a larger 7-inch screen. Overall, the Oasis’s larger size makes it less practical to carry and hold than the Paperwhite. The Oasis is no longer the only waterproof Kindle, but it does have an auto-brightness feature that automatically adjusts the screen’s brightness level based on ambient light. But its $250 starting price is significantly higher than that of even our pick, yet it isn’t clearly better for even frequent readers.
But just dipping into any of the above sites will fill out your library nicely, help you discover classics and new authors, and give you plenty to read as you wait for life to return to normal. And if you need more advice on devices for reading eBooks, we have a guide to the best tablets right now. Project Gutenberg is probably the most well recognized website for free eBooks and provides books for the Kindle, Nook, Sony Reader, iPhone, iPod Touch and other cell phone formats as well. These titles are free because their copyrights have expired, which means many of the titles will be fairly old. But a good classic is often hard to beat, so don’t skip this selection in your search for the best read of the year. With over 20,000 works it might be difficult to decide where to begin, but you can view the list of the top 100 to get started.
These are the 17 best sites with free books covering a wide variety of subjects, anything from romance novels to computer technology manuals. Purchased an ebook which was supposed to be supported in epub format but after purchasing, it indicated I had to download their own app and I FileZilla wouldn’t be able to use iBooks to read it . So then I tried opening in Adobe Digital and re-authorized + re-installed Adobe but NO, the book still cannot be opened or downloaded. Basically, the error message I received was that the file didn’t even exist. So I’ve been wasting a half hour trying to read a damn book. And your recommendation that people should "chose" another company is puzzling.

Do you know of some other ebook retailer, other than Amazon, whose ebooks can be read on Amazon’s proprietary device platform? If there is such a company then people really would be wise to chose that firm if they already choosed to buy a Kindle Paperwhite. But of course not if, in buying their ebook, they want to get screwed by that vendor; it appears that only we inadvertently offer that service. Paid for book, you then have to follow these un-helpful instructions on how to somehow download a copy of the book you purchased, but first must get this other software. Then when you receive a ‘licensing error’ you contact ebooks and they don’t reply. Their accessible version of the book you pay for it terrible as well, so glitchy and rubbish to load.
- Bright colors and chrome do more to advertise the driver’s presence in my bag than anything else.
- Very forgiving, I’m hitting more fairways than anything and the lesson definitely contributed.
- Seriously, I think the price is more unappealing than the colo,r, and it’s not as garish as the Cobra yellow, IMO.
We do publish a pretty clear statement on every product page stating that you’ll need to install Adobe (or other publisher-approved) software in order to read encrypted ebooks. It’s much like how people need to install a Kindle app, or download to a Kindle device in order to read an ebook bought from Amazon. A lot of people seemed to lean to the scam part but what I noticed was that a lot of the complaints seemed to be things that were explicitly stated in the description of the item. The problem is that if you scroll down the description page of your desired Ebook, everything is laid out for you in a very comprehensive way. Again, you’re unlikely to find the brand new releases on here, and you should absolutely pay for work that has been released by creators who need to make money from it.
