Bookworm: A Memoir of Childhood Reading by Lucy Mangan. Read online, or download in secure EPUB format. I've written this info elsewhere, but ePub really is a great ebook format, COOL- ER, Cruz Reader, Ctaindia's eGriver Ebook Reader, eClicto, eSlick, Bookworm from O'Reilly allows readers to add ePub books to their online. The killer feature I need is saving any highlighting and bookmarking right into the file (generally PDF, and now more often EPUBs as well).
Key features of Bookworm: Supports. You can install the Bookworm eBook app on Ubuntu The app saves your reading position so that you can quickly resume where you left off when you re-open it.
You can grab the source code from Github and compile it yourself, just be sure to have the relevant GTK Webkit package installed first. Buka lets you move between pages of a PDF using your arrow keys or toolbar buttons ; adjust page zoom; view 2 pages side-by-side; and search for text in compatible documents.
Should you need it you can also rotate individual pages of a PDF.
For managing your PDFs Buka lets you create separate lists, e. But my favourite feature is the built-in translation tool. But if all you want to do is read books then Calibre comes undone. Consider Calibre the sprawling multi-book epic to the lightweight summer-reads of other apps on this list. But, oddly, the app is only able to display ePub books — which is confusing!
That's something that's not going to work for me, but please correct me if I'm wrong. Originally Posted by qqn. That's great to hear.
Thanks for the update, I'm excited to check back again in a few months to see how that's progressing. I'd love a system that stores everything just locally.
Tbh, just the idea of signing in to a third-party service to access my own library is already a no-go. Syncing between my phone and my laptop is a great addition but my main concerns are great curation abilities alongside privacy I can trust. Good luck -- looking forward to seeing what you cook up: I'm happy to help, and even happier skilled people are turning their talents to creating something like this.
The world needs it! How I do that? I researched several things over years for this purpose.
Sign-in required for sync. Paid cloud subscription required. Bookari 4 uses Adobe's renderers for epub2 and epub3 and you can choose renderer this means that if you provide them file which will crash app in some situations or just being rendered incorrectly, they can do exactly nothing about it.
This was confirmed by support several times.
Epub3 renderer have Bookfusion one is better in my opinion. Strange sync logic it looks like it assumes you start book on one device and continue SAME on another. As far as I understood, they use their own epub renderer and licensed PDF renderer. Everything skillachie said is true.
Calibre plugin for uploading you can also upload via Web as far as I understood, you can also upload from mobile app but I never used this. Paid subscription is required for anything serious if you need sync. Doesn't appear to slowdown with big library. Dictionary integration: Issues with GUI I asked directly about most problematic of them and got answers like 'this will be fixed in '. If some file renders incorrectly, this can be fixed by sending it to support.
Sometimes it's rather fast. Guys, I just found a really neat app that could have all the functions I'm looking for, it's called Polar getpolarized. Here's a great summary of what they offer: This is true, and a big failing.
I also came across a neat conversation about the new iPad Air that now has me thinking to maybe get one and make that my media device. Tags annotation , archive , bookmark , curation , library. All times are GMT The time now is Mark Forums Read.
