Best Ways to Read E-books on Ubuntu

Filed under
Software

If you too are an Ubuntu user like us who loves to read the best books, here are some great software applications that should come in handy. These apps not only allow you to easily read e-books, but also manage them effortlessly.

Calibre

Calibre is more of an e-book management tool than an e-book reader. The free software lets you organize your e-book collection in a nice library along with metadata tagging. For books that don’t have any tags, Calibre also allows you to automatically download the metadata, thus making your library much more organized.

  • SMS based Cosmos Browser for the developing countries
    Browsing the internet has different meaning to different people. While to some the web is a source of entertainment, to others it is a valuable and source of learning. Sadly enough, the internet is not widely available and easily affordable everywhere in the globe. Slow network speed is another problem. Developer Stefan Aleksic of ColdSauce tries to find a solution in an SMS (text) based browser for the third world countries which are yet to see the internet as we know it. He has named it the Cosmos Browser. If you ever used elinks on Linux, you know how efficient and low-bandwidth text only browsing can be. Of course, it is not meant for visiting a website for downloading wallpapers, but it is more than sufficient if you want to read some information from the web. Cosmos will work on text and will not need any data plan or WiFi.
