Free E-Reader That Offers Free Books

Freda ePub eBook Reader is a free e-reader program that allows you to access e-books from various online sources, at no cost. Available for different platforms, Freda is a digital library of over 50,000 public domain books. It promotes free and accessible education without having to go far.

Get the Reader You Need

With the rise of the digital age, most media have been transferred to the internet, and you no longer need their physical copies to enjoy them. Books and tomes of text, in particular, have now been converted into electronic books or e-books and most books published will almost always have their digital copies available for purchase as well. Some even have no physical copies themselves. This new form of media gave birth to electronic reader devices and programs. E-readers come in many different forms and ranges of functionality. Some are merely simple book viewer programs, and you’ll need to manually get your own books to be able to use these apps. Some offer free e-book copies from a selection of online sources. These e-readers support different websites that promote public domain books—titles that can be read by the public, free of charge. Whatever your platform of choice, though, you’ll need to find an e-reader that fits your needs. Basic ones only offer the bare minimum of features, such as font formatting and a magnifier. Others are fully loaded with customization, even letting you directly edit some aspects of an e-book for your convenience. Freda ePub eBook Reader falls into this category and doesn’t disappoint in what it can do.

Books For All

Freda performs well, just like its fellow e-readers. It offers customizable controls on fonts and colors, allows you to turn on annotations and use bookmarks, and lets you look up dictionary definitions and translations. Text-to-speech reading can also be toggled on for those times when you’d like to multitask or just rest your eyes but still want to read. Like other reader apps, Freda ePub eBook Reader can access various e-book formats like EPUB, MOBI, FB2, HTML, and TXT. It also understands EPUB formatting information—like bold/italic text, margins, and alignment—and can display images and diagrams in books. You can even get public domain classic books from Feedbooks, Smashwords, the Gutenberg Project, and other online catalogs by using Freda. If you have an existing book collection, you can use OneDrive, Dropbox, or Calibre alongside Freda to share it on your phone. Freda also syncs your devices together so it’ll be easy to transition from one reader to another. This app is free and only supports ads that it displays at the bottom of the main screen, but you can pay to have it removed. For little to no cost, this is a great app to try when you’d like to access free books online.

Can’t Hurt to Try

As far as performance goes, Freda ePub eBook Reader satisfies most of its users. Some find its interface a little tricky to use, and most problems stem from the app struggling reading some files. But, other than that, it’s still an intuitive e-reader that can help you flip open some e-books.

    This app can be only installed in M$ shop which is simply stupid - such apps cannot be reached in Windows 10, which makes Freda useless, because you cannot link Freda to Calibre.
