A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

How to Use my android phone no ereader

Post by Hnybdgr8 »

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?

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.

WPS Office is a great one. It has various reading options. It even has eye protection!

I hadn't heard of ALReader before this. I'll certainly check it out! Thanks!
