You might think that this blog is all about books. With all of those book reviews, book quotes post and freebie round ups, you’ll conclude that it’s all books. But actually this blog is not all about books. If you ask me it’s all about reading. I love reading and writing about what I read. I’m not bound to books. I read (and collect) comic books and children’s books. I read and follow blogs. I advocate reading to people whenever I’m given an opportunity. So this blog is all about reading and not all about books.
Loving different reading format makes me think that not all will appreciate one format, specifically books. I believe people will read something for sure but not my favorite format. For this I know some of you folks out there, books are not your turf. Maybe you just love to read something short, with attractive photos and lots of variety of topics covered. I think you might be into reading magazines. If you’re that kind of person then this post is for you. And I know you don’t want to pay not a single dime for it, don’t you? Well this post is really really for you lol.
I wrote already a post on how to create a digital library of free books, so this time I’ll share you on how to create a digital rack with free magazines. I hope this will help you appreciate reading and eventually appreciate reading books.
Like my post on creating an instant digital library free, you’ll need an e-book reader. I’ll post it again here my favorite e-reader apps that, like those digital magazines are also free.
Kindle – Some tablets and phone have this app on default but you can get one for free over the Apple Store or Google Play. After downloading, create an account over Amazon. This is useful not just in opening e-books but also when you stumble upon a free ebook over Amazon (or getting a free e-book alert in your e-mail that I’ll share later) .
UB Reader – Another free app that is so versatile because it reads almost all digital format of a book.
Moon Reader – Basically it’s like the UB Reader and but if you go for the paid one, its a totally different story. I highly recommend you get the its premium app.
If you want have a more detailed treatment in using and reading ebook, you might want to check this excellent article by my friend Elijah Abanto. How to Read an E-book is an excellent article that includes how to’s and reviews of different reading apps not feature here on this post.
