★ “If there’s an app that offers more e-book bang for the buck, I haven’t found it.” – CNET Reviews

It’s easy to find great books and authors. Browse by category (e.g. mystery, action & adventure, romance, science fiction), view popular or recently added books, see recommended reading lists, read reviews, search for something specific or read book samples and entire works from up and coming authors.

Read on the bus to work, sneak in a few chapters while you are waiting for lunch, or take time out on a coffee break. Never be caught without a book again.


MegaReader comes with 25 great books already downloaded to get you started, including works from Jane Austen, Dale Carnegie, Agatha Christie, Paulo Coelho, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Jack London, and Kurt Vonnegut.

MegaReader remembers your place in a book, allows you to read in portrait or landscape mode, and will tell you how long you have to finish a chapter based on the built-in speed reading test.

Search, discover, and download books from six great online catalogs, or import your own books over Wi-Fi. Then enjoy your downloaded books anytime, anywhere. No network connection required.
