How to Use my android phone no ereader

Post by Hnybdgr8 » 09 Oct 2018, 02:50

I don't have an ereader but use the Kindle app and Google app. On my android phone. How do I go about reading a book from this site?Are the books I chose free to read once I've added them to my shelves?

Books on Bookshelves cannot be read or downloaded.

I use an Android phone as well. I use Kindle, Overdrive, and Xodo and they seem to work great. Xodo is on Goole Play as a free app.

Great idea! I wonder is Star SunOffice is available for Android. It's free to use for desktops.

Try Office suite or ALreader, it works for mobi files or epub. Both have text-to-speach command while sight-reading.

Aldiko is a good app. I have been using it for a while and there have been no problems.
