Digital Reading Technologies

There are many ways to consume digital material.

eBook reader vendors have developed ecosystems of apps and digital content.  You can start reading a book on your eReader (Nook, Kindle, etc.) at home. Then, while commuting, you can open up your Nook or Kindle app for Android or iOS and continue reading the same book later on your phone or tablet.

The Apple iPad and iPhone both run the iBooks app and serve as reading devices for many. The book selection is smaller compared to Amazon or Barnes & Noble. Amazon also has a Cloud Reader that works on the iPad with a direct link to the Kindle Store.

Developers also make apps for Windows and MacOS to enable reading on computers. Furthermore, Microsoft and other technology companies develop browser-based reading solutions for various types of publications.

Find the reading option that matches your needs and preferences.
